Billy Castro Does the Mission and QueerPorn.TV Win Big at Feminist Porn Awards!

The 2011 Feminist Porn Awards were held in Toronto last weekend and I’m proud to say, I won two awards out of my five nominations.

I’m super excited that a film I made with one of my best friends won the award for Most Tantalizing Trans Film. Billy Castro Does the Mission is a true testament to collaboration, and I’d love to share the trophy with my darling muse Billy Castro. He deserves it more than I do for all of that hard fucking and gallivanting around the Mission with a camera on him!

This is actually the second year in a row that I’ve won the award for Best Trans film. Last year, Billy Castro and I made off with the award for Speakeasy and his star-making breakthrough role as a private eye seduced by an underground queer speakeasy.

I feel a real sense of warmth and acceptance for winning this award two years in a row. I really, really love working with trans people. “FTM Porn” didn’t exist ten years ago, and I feel a real sense of pride of being one of many people creating the genre from the ground up, making our own rules, and creating something huge out of nothing. It’s only going to get better from here, with many more trans guys making their own porn, becoming stars, and getting their faces, bodies, and sexual desires out in the open. Trans women are also experiencing a breakthrough in porn, with many more being included or including themselves in the indie/queer porn world and combating the dominant porn industry’s stereotyping, and I hope that next year’s Trans Film award goes to an MTF feature.

Only five months after the launch date, my brand new porn site QueerPorn.TV won an Honored Website award. I’m in shock that we beat out other sites, including my own, that have been around making hot, female-made, female-friendly porn for years and years. I guess me and co-director Tina Horn are doing something right by keeping it hardcore and diverse, blunt but romantic.

Since I wasn’t able to attend the awards ceremony (due to the best babysitting gig I’ve EVER had!!!) I asked my darling little porn sister Judy Minx to go up on stage and give my acceptance speech if I won anything. She went up for QueerPorn.TV with Tina Horn and delivered my message beautifully. Thanks to Hot Movies For Her, there’s a YouTube video of it. 🙂
