A Langley band wants to kick off a public discussion about porn.

Her Brothers is hosting an event called PORN: Helpful or Hurtful?, hoping it will start a community dialogue on the issue that matter, said organizer Teresa Penner.

The event is set for Friday, July 15 at Chief Sepass Theatre in Fort Langley at 7:30 p.m., and will include a presentation by Langley counsellor Lawrence Stoynowski from Lighthouse and music from the local Penner family band.

The event is being hosted by a training and development group called Life+App Soul that are offering free monthly events that mix live music, stories, images, and arts to create what Penner describes as an environment where anyone – regardless of spiritual belief, cultural background, or sexual orientation is inspired to take action towards personal growth.

This month’s event is intended to launch an “honest conversation” about porn.

“This event is a free community event to discuss the effects of easy access to porn for this generation of kids,” said Penner.

“Many kids as early as nine years of age have already had their first introduction to porn. The first generation of kids who have grown up with Internet porn has reached adulthood and some of them are speaking out about the effects,” she elaborated.
