SAN FRANCISCO, CA — QueerPorn.TV, co-created by Tina Horn and Courtney Trouble, has been nominated for an AVN award in the category of Best Alternative Website.
Launched in November 2010, QueerPorn.TV features exclusive hardcore content available for direct download, VOD or streaming in the member’s area. Stars on the site include Jiz Lee, Wolf Hudson, Dylan Ryan, Madison Young, Billy Castro, James Darling, Maggie Mayhem, Sophia St. James, and many more.
QueerPorn.TV is packed with free content, including in-depth video interviews with queer porn stars. These intimate interviews delve into topics ranging from performing in porn to exhibitionism, kink, gender ﬂuidity and sexual appetite, allowing the user to access the stars of their favorite porn in a whole new way.
“After existing for only one year, we are shocked and thankful for the accolades we have been given,” said Trouble. “We can’t tell you how hard we have worked to bring you top shelf pornography that showcases authentic sexual expression and sex-positive porn-making practices.”
Not only is QueerPorn.TV independently-owned, feminist and queer, it aims to be generous to its fans. QueerPorn.TV just celebrated its one year birthday by offering the entire day free to users. The gratitude doesn’t stop there.
“We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this site the winner it’s become,” says Trouble.
This nomination isn’t QueerPorn.TV’s first. Last year it was a winner of the Feminist Porn award for Best Site, which happened within six-months of its launch. AVN marks new ground.
Trouble remarks, “To this day, no queer porn project has won an actual AVN award, but we are excited to be a part of the game again.”
Trouble is a rising star performer pegged as a “Queer Porn Icon” for creating the juicy, raw, and authentic pro-amateur genre of “Queer Porn” a movement known for its unscripted, untouched and diverse portrayal of lesbian, gay and bisexual men and women, including trans men, trans women and genderqueer identities.
This is Trouble’s second site. She started NoFauxxx.Com as a 19 year-old photographer and web designer, with the purpose of creating an indie porn site that was authentic, empowering and all-inclusive. She soon found herself as one of the founders of the queer porn movement, setting the stage for all that was to come.
Horn is a BDSM-professional, kink educator, queer pornographer, sex writer and all-around macho slut. She has been practicing professional domination, submission and fetish and fantasy exploration for over four years in the Bay Area, Manhattan and Toronto. With Trouble, she co-created QueerPorn.TV, which she describes as a “documentary of modern transgressive sexuality masquerading as a hardcore porn site.” Her erotica has been published in numerous Cleis Press anthologies, her reportage on sex culture has been showcased on the website Carnal Nation and her critical theory of sex work in AORTA and Whore! magazines.
