I have received not one but SEVEN nominations from the BBW FanFest Awards, a special event that acknowledges the hard work and incredible content released by plus-size performers and fat-positive studios.

While I don’t always agree with the politics behind “BBW” porn (how I don’t always identify as a woman, how I don’t like how segregated the adult industry is over size, how negative a lot of fat porn comes across, how straight the whole thing is, etc…) the fact of the matter is, I would NEVER get a nomination based on my performances by a place like the AVN Awards, because the category simply DOESN’T EXIST, and they don’t include queer plus size performers in their general categories. It’s this fact that shows that even though I’ve been performing for he best of the last ten years, this is my FIRST nomination from ANYONE based on my work as a porn performer, having gotten the Newcomer of the Year nomination as well as Plumper of the Year, AND Specialty Niche Performer of the Year (which is, I think, because I fuck a lot of girls…..)

So THANK YOU, BBW FanFest, for making the categories, and putting together an awesome convention and awards ceremony that not only appreciates people of size, but celebrates them and gives them the trophies they deserve.

As much as I am beginning to loathe Las Vegas, I am most definitely planning on making it to the awards show and convention this year to meet all my fans who nominated me and the great folks who put this awesome weekend on. Even though I may not agree with the whole industry, i DO want to participate in and support events that encourage performers like me to take their work seriously and know that there ARE people watching, and loving, plus size porn.

Here are my specific nominations:

Studio of the Year: TROUBLEfilms (which released Lesbian Curves this month!)
Director of the Year: Courtney Trouble
Newcomer of the Year: Courtney Trouble
Specialty Niche Performer of the Year: Courtney Trouble
Plumper of the Year: Courtney Trouble (FYI: “Plumper” is the industry term for on the smaller side.)
Multi-Girl Site of the Year: QueerPorn.TV
Fetish/Specialty Site of the Year: QueerPorn.TV

PS. Also, thank you to the BBW FanFest Awards for including trans women in your nominations without segregation – I think that’s really fuckin cool and I hope my babe Michelle Austin wins everything she’s nominated for!
