Feminist Porn Awards – We are Family

by Jiz Lee on / Events, Feminist Porn Awards, Queer Porn

Just a quick jot from Toronto (thanks Syd Blakovich for the laptop connection) to share a little about the events last night.

What an AMAZING night! I’m in love with Toronto’s queers. All of them. Especially the sweet sweet folks who introduced themselves, asked questions, talked about porn, shared their experiences and inspirations. I’m so grateful for all the conversations last night! (Shout out to JD from HotMoviesForHer.com! And to GoodForHer.com‘s Alison Lee — who I proposed to!)

Syd and I had a CRAZY trip getting out here, much of which was tweeted about (@sydblakovich & @jezinyoureye). If you noticed that my last tweet yesterday ended in Denver, it’s because I failed to realize my phone doesn’t have international service. WHOOPS.

So I’m glad @MadisonYoung and @eastwardho (ssshhhh… Dylan) and @SydBlakovich for tweeting the awards. And can I just add, that they were held at a CHURCH? How cool is that!?

@nerdpunkcub won honorable mention for Couch Surfers 2. #feministpornawards

Huge congratulations to Ken Rowe and Trannywood Pictures for their much deserved honorable mention for Couch Surfers 2 — and what a GREAT clip that was shown! (Curious? You’ll have to go and see it for yourself.)

@courtneytrouble won for most diverse for Roulette. #feminstpornawards

HELLS YES Courtney! NoFauxxx.com is ALL about diversity and this award was made for Roulette. The video (on pre-sale now) is one of the most eclectic porns out there, showing something from so many parts of a queer spectrum. There’s something for everyone.

@eastwardsho‘s acceptnce speech: feminist porn awards and more flix on @shinelouise channel.

Dylan! Her speech made me cry. (And you can see the hot Boylesque who helped to deliver the trophies!)

@Pinkwhite just won movie of the fucking year!

Congrats to Shine Louise Houston for CHAMPION. We all came up on stage (those of us who were there. Dallas was definitely missed, and she has a ton of fans)! Sasha Von Boom Boom introduced us to the stage – Syd Blakovich, Jiz Lee (moi), Madison Young, Dylan Ryan, Courtney Trouble, and Ian Sparks — and it felt like a Queer Family. Pink & White Productions really brought our queer porn community together with this film, and it really felt like it standing on stage.

Syd: During my xcptanc speech @jezinyoueye rimd me & @madisonyoung ate me out. Best.speech.ever.

There’s not a clip of this… though there should definitely be a reenactment. 🙂

Pink & White Productions also won Steamiest Trans Scene for CrashPadSeries.com Vol 2: Unlocked!

Madison said (via many tweets) the following, and I couldn’t agree more:

Last night was truly amazing. Was awarded indie porn pioneer and best kink movie for Perversions. Thank you @goodforher. It was so powerful to join the stage with my community, my fellow sexual revolutionaries, as we were honored for our work in this medium. It’s one thing to see the impact we have on our home base of San Francisco but quite another to see that kind of impact happening in another country. Thank you all for being a part of this movement.

More pics, video clips, and stories to follow! Shawn tweeted this before going out on a run. Aaah, vacation pic! (If you’re curious what I was watching on tv, it was pure trash! Brittany Speared.

SO incredibly happy for all of you!
It makes me indescribably proud to be a woman, queer and a feminist to know that such achievements are being made.

With love, light and lube,
