The first of it’s kind, BBW Fan Fest is “a trade show, awards show and parties all in celebration of curvy, plus sized BBW adult stars, models and webcam performers.” The Director of the Year award marks Courtney’s first win at the convention, where TROUBLEfilms also hosted a fan booth with Kitty Stryker, Betty Blac, and Cinnamon Maxxine signing photos and promoting the Lesbian Curves series, a plus-size focused queer porn project featuring authentic lesbian sex.

Courtney Trouble’s acceptance speech was tearful, joyful, and personal: “I’ve been making porn for 11 years, and I started it because I was a fat girl in a fat-shaming world. And today I feel like I have family for the first time in this industry.” Courtney added, “I am beyond thankful to my fans, my co-stars, and every single incredible performer that has graced my lens for helping me win the gift I’ve been given tonight. I still can’t believe that I have been chosen as BBW FanFest 2013’s ‘DIRECTOR OF THE YEAR’ I have so much gratitude. Thank you!”

Betty Blac, 2013 BBW FanFest Award nominee for “Speciality Niche Performer of the Year” and “Fan Favorite”, and two-time Lesbian Curves superstar spoke of the significance of Courtney’s win. “I was so proud to see Courtney receive this award. No one else is doing what she is doing, for as long as she has been doing it.” Betty Blac continued on saying “This is a win for progressive porn.” (Betty Blac can be reached via twitter at @bettyblac1)
