San Francisco, CA – Ethical porn production and distribution company TROUBLEfilms is pleased to carry the work of director Tobi Hill-Meyer. This exciting collaboration will open new avenues for both companies, and make Hill-Meyer’s films more readily available to her quickly growing fan base.

Trouble has been a major player in showcasing queer identity and transsexual performers in ethically made independant porn, and is strongly supportive of trans women’s presence in the industry, especially in cases where performers get the chance to define their own terms and represent themselves on screen.
“This new partnership is an opportunity to bring two smaller businesses together to become a larger force in the industry at large, while bringing awareness to the importance of inclusion and positive representation in the adult industry,” says Trouble. “I am enthusiastic about opening new avenues for trans women’s representation.”
“Before I started making porn, I looked around at what existed and I was disappointed,” said Tobi. “Mainstream transsexual porn felt like a straight male fantasy and didn’t represent the trans women that I knew, and feminist and queer porn seemed to barely represent trans women at all. I focus my work on letting trans women represent their sexuality the way they want to see themselves represented.”
“I can’t wait to see what we can do together,” says Tobi. “Look out porn world, here we come.”
Tobi Hill-Meyer, has directed and produced Doing It Ourselves, the first queer/feminist porn film made by and for trans women and their partners, and The Genderfellator, a plot-driven, pornographic sci-fi parody. Tobi was honored with the Feminist Porn Awards 2010 Emerging Filmmaker Award for her work on Doing It Ourselves, and The Gendercator received an Honorable Mention in 2011.
