Trans Grrrls nominated for a Trans Porn Award!

trans-grrrls-vod-cover-web-snmall-300x400This week, TROUBLEfilms is celebrating 3 nominations from the trans porn awards, held February 16th 2014 in Los Angeles including Best Film for Trans Grrrls: Revolution Porn Style Now, out now on DVD and VOD at transgrrrls.com.

This marks the first time that queer porn has been included in the mainstream trans porn celebratory ceremony, which is in it’s 6th year.

I have also received two Best Director nominations, one for films and one for scene production. Trans Grrrls stars Michelle Austin and Chelsea Poe have both been nominated for performer awards, and our deep allies Wolf Hudson, James Darling, and Crash Pad Series have also received nominations.

ftmfuckerbio-jamesThis is the second year the the trans porn awards have included a category for best trans male performer, marking a major breakthrough credited towards James Darling and TROUBLEfilms network site FTMFucker.Com, from which all the nominees (Jacques LeFemme, Ramses Rodstein, Fritz Von Fuckup, Chance Armstrong, Devon Wipp, James Darling, and Rex) were chosen.

The official name for the trans porn awards is “Tranny Awards,” but I am renaming it on my end of the promotions because in my community, “tranny” is a derogatory term for most individuals. I have been transparent with the event directors on this fact and we will be in talks on how to make the event more inclusive of the queer porn community for 2015.

Many trans porn performers and producers continue to use the term “tranny” because it reaches the customers. By being transparent as queer porn performers and producers about our desires for better marketing language, I do think we can expect to see a little change in the industry, where other, more offensive derogatory terms are already being phased out.

trans-grrrls-bennerThe trans porn awards have transitionally been a place where trans women and porn producers meet and celebrate the best of transsexual porn, and has been a positive place for women in the adult industry – whereas other awards ceremonies have been dismissive and occasionally offensive.

Me and the mythical world of TROUBLEfilms are deeply honored to be recognized by the corporate porn world with these nominations for the queer porn contingent. I hope it shows fans and producers of trans porn that it can be made, and be successful, without negative stereotypes or derogatory marketing. Let’s hope that means it can also win some trophies in February!
