The Feminist Porn Awards


I can't believe that it has been 4 years already since the Feminist Porn Awards took off. It is the brainchild of the luverly Chanelle Gallant (you can see one of her articles that we posted here) and the fine ladies at Good For Her.

If you are in Toronto, swing on by and check it out!

Here are the vitals:

The Fourth Annual Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards
Friday, April 24th 2009
Berkeley Church(315 Queen Street East, Toronto)

Featuring
Raging Asian Women
Coco La Crème
Daddy K and the Rhythm Method

Gussy up in your award-show best and enjoy an evening dedicated to erotic art and film with amazing local entertainers and the industry’s best and brightest, and more sexy prizes than you can shake a stick at! Partial proceeds go to SHEPP (the Sexual Health Education and Pleasure Project), giving pleasure-based sex ed to youth and marginalized communities in and around Toronto.
