Despite Concerns, Adult Expo on For Tomorrow 

Richmond’s first adult entertainment expo will continue as planned Saturday planned despite late attempts to stop the event.

First the host hotel, The Clarion on North Boulevard, said it was trying to back out of its contract to serve as the event’s venue because it didn’t line up with their “new image”. Then The Richmond Justice Initiative, an anti human trafficking group, said it was reaching out to area faith leaders in an effort to organize an official response and discourage Richmonders from attending.

The event’s spokeswoman, Sundari Prasad, says organizers made one change: the after party has been moved to a “friendlier venue”, the Encore Ultra Lounge on South 12th Street.

She said organizers had always expected some pushback from more conservative residents. She views the event as an opportunity to help Richmond overcome its “prudish tendencies.”

The event runs from 2 to 10 p.m. -- details are at the event’s website, which is probably NSFW.
