Toronto Porn Weekend

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Tristan Taormino, Shar Rednour and Nan Kinney at #FPCon

We’ve been traveling the last couple of weeks, off to Toronto for the first annual Feminist Porn Conference, where Nan and Shar Rednour gave a great presentation on lesbian porn from the 1960s – 2000s, “Lesbo Retro: A Dyke Porn Retrospective.”

But best of all, Nan received the Trailblazer Award at the Feminist Porn Awards on Friday night!

We’ve posted some pictures and will post more.

For our friends who weren’t there or couldn’t make it this year, here are some completely subjective notes, and links to more resources. Don’t miss the piece in the Daily Beast.

The 8th annual Feminist Porn Awards were held on Friday night, April 5, 2013, at the Capitol Events Theatre in Toronto. Good for Her, the sponsors, put on a stellar show. There were performances by Coco La Crème, Lena Love and Axel Blows & Mahogany Storm. Friends from near and far were all in attendance, including Courtney Trouble, whose Lesbian Curves won Hottest Dyke Film.

The FPA Trailblazer Award given to Nan was a complete surprise! Shar Rednour presented it, and you should have seen the smile on Nan’s face!

To see the entire list of award-winners, check out Good for Her. Kudos to Good for Her diva Carlyle Jansen for a spectacular party.

For an excellent overview of the Toronto weekend, don’t miss the Daily Beast article by one of our favorite people, Rachel Kramer Bussel (, “Organic, Fair Trade Porn: On the Hunt for Ethical Smut.”

For the weekend told in Tweets, check out Storify, a compilation by Tristan Taormino of #FPCon tweets that really does express the excitement of the weekend!

You know where we’ll be next year for the 2nd annual FPCon for sure!

Yours in good love and sex,

Nan & Christi
