Courtney Trouble’s Inspiration Behind New Trans Lesbians Film!

Not interested in my thoughts? OK, TLDR: Pre-Order Trans Lesbians and scroll for pretty pictures!

FDVD_wrap_templateans of my 2013 film Trans Grrrls have been patiently awaiting this follow up, which took over a year to shoot in three different cities across the US. At home in Oakland, TROUBLEfilms resident video grrrl Cocopop, along with myself and Kitty Stryker handled the cameras, while in Brooklyn, Bailey’s adorable husband did the shooting.

All scenes were cast and edited by Courtney Trouble, with scene collaborations with the performers to write every treatment. The final scene in particular, “Cis on My Face/Trans Girls Are Sexy” starring Drew Deveaux and Andre Shakti, was made mostly by Cocopop (storyline, filming, on-set direction, and editing) with Drew’s heavy influence!

Chelsea Poe and Betti Rubble was our biggest production day, having three crew members including myself and about 2 hours of set decoration semi-inspired by tee vee dinner’s film Queen Bee Empire.

Trans Grrrls was a one of a kind film that made a statement about trans inclusion in queer women’s spaces – and in a way, Trans Lesbians makes a similar statement about the inclusion of trans women in the lesbian porn community – but these images turned out so powerful without overt political explanation, and my inspiration quickly morphed into much more visual of a message. The politics are, of course, still there.

With this film, I want to make less of a broad documentary of trans’ womens sexualities on film or the diversity of desire. Instead, I focused on three of my biggest muses, and collaborated on artistic, beautiful, kinky, love-filled sex scenes. I’m not a trans woman – I’m only lucky enough to know a few and have loved a few – so it’s not my place to define what trans lesbian sex looks like on a broad range. Tobi Hill-Meyer is doing a damn good job at that herself with DoingItOnline.Com, and I highly suggest enjoying my new film as a supplement to her work. As with the first film, I want to add to the growing collection of trans-positive erotic imagery while supporting the performers and film makers who are paving the way for progressive trans-positive porn.

So I made Courtney Trouble’s Trans Lesbians an homage to three trans femme porn stars and their personal fantasies. Bratty high school BFFS, Dyke March love affairs, and explicit one night stands littered the dirty dreams of Chelsea Poe, Bailey Jay, and Drew Deveaux – erotic material I am most excited to depict on screen.

Despite the title and much like my series Lesbian Curves, not each and every performer in this film is a full-time Lesbian. Betti Rubble and I are genderqueer femmes, and many of the performers have much more varied sexual orientations than just lesbian. We use the word lesbian to describe the kind of porn this is and the kind of sex this is – lesbian porn featuring trans women. Everyone in the film is very much queer, lesbian-ish-identified, and very much female.

Absolutely no derogatory terms were used in the making or marketing of Trans Lesbians, and all performers were given express permission to craft their own sex and their own stories, dress talk and fuck as they please, use safe words, and participate in safer sex practises.

Queer porn has a growing presence of trans women behind the camera and in front of the camera, and it is no surprise that the genre-defining term “trans lesbians” is already one that is shared. When this film is long gone, trans lesbian director Emma Claire’s new site TransLesbians.Com will be rolling out constant updates that feature gonzo-style girl/girl couplings – and we hope this term catches on industry-wide. There’s a chance to create a whole new porn genre here, one that depicts genuine lesbian pleasure, and genuine trans sexuality. It’s very, very different from what the industry standard pornographers make in the trans genre, and I’m so honored to participate.

Trans Lesbians is coming soon, practically now! The store page is already up, with the option to pre-order the DVD, which streets on Jan. 29th 2015, making it the first release of what’s sure to be a very big year for TROUBLEfilms. Your Pre-Order will put you in line to get the VOD release on January 15th.


Trans Lesbians is a beautifully shot, chemistry-driven hard core feature that follows Bailey Jay, Chelsea Poe, and Drew Deveaux through a lusty web of lesbian sex. The five scenes in Trans Lesbians are shot in Trouble’s trademark artistic hardcore style that blends effortlessly the trans-postive porn ethos that TROUBLEfilms is famous for, with an edge of raw, hard core sex that the fans will love.

TRANS LESBIANS WORK SPACE.Still021Bailey Jay, recipient of two AVN Trans Performer of the Year Awards, shines in this release, featuring two hard core scenes. In her queer porn debut, Bailey Jay gets perverted with Chelsea Poe’s panties while enjoying an expertly delivered blowjob, then switches in pure girl/girl style and pounds Chelsea’s hole with a Feminist Porn Award, designed by Fucking Sculptures!

Chelsea Poe, meanwhile, enjoying multiple 2015 awards season nominations, also stars in this film with real life fuck buddy and porn newbie Betti Rubble. The scene in punky, perky, and full of perversions, as Betti Rubble has fun teasing, torturing, and finally fucking Chelsea senseless with a strap on!

Bailey comes back to Courtney Trouble’s sensual seductions, and in this iconic lesbionic scene, enjoy all the luscious soft skin, sexy kissing, finger play, oral sex, and orgasms. This is one of Bailey’s only scenes where you will see her licking and fingering pussy!

Feminist Porn award Heart Throb and trans activist Drew Deveaux makes her huge hardcore porno comeback, starring in two career-making scenes with Courtney Trouble and Andre Shakti. With Courtney, the two lovers can’t tell up from down or top from bottom, as they trade power back and forth faster than you can perceive. There’s so much fucking in this scene, you forget that these babes are bonafide porn stars, and not just mad with lust!

In another lover’s scene, Drew takes on the Dyke March (in a cute Trans Grrrls throwback!) with real life sweetie Andre Shakti. Flirting in the grass, foreplay in the trees, and full on lesbian fucking in a tent? It will convince anyone ever that pride parades are where it’s at when it comes to the best lesbian cruising!

“I wanted to focus on three women who have really put forth so much effort to make the industry a great place to work, and really embody that TROUBLEfilms creative spirit. Bailey, Chelsea, and Drew stand above the rest in my mind as muses and incredible individuals. They are three of the most important trans performers of our generation.”

Trans Lesbians is a follow up film to 2013’s critic’s darling and award-winning title Trans Grrrls: Revolution Porn Style Now!
