February 14, 2014    7 p.m.     Gas Station Arts Centre

Presented by Rainbow Pride Mosaic, QueerView, UWSA LGBT* Centre, Club 200 and Cherrystems.com! This is an 18+ event.

Part of the festivities of Genderfest Winnipeg 2014! Spend your Valentine’s day getting a little saucy with Courtney Trouble, Kate Sinclaire and the Cherrystemmers, and ChubRub productions’ burlesque performance at the Gas Station Arts Centre!

Join us for an awesome night of conversation and entertainment as renowned queer porn icon Courtney Trouble shares her knowledge and experience with us in her presentation, Feminist Porn: Representing Pleasure.

“Pornography can be powerful, but can it change the world? We want to talk about porn as a tool of feminist anti-oppression as it relates to the current feminist atmosphere, and our society at large — not just how it relates or differs from the dominant adult industry. How does porn reach or teach its audience, and how can we use it to promote awareness of the inequalities that we face? As feminist artists, how have we had to fight to see our work seen? As activists, how have we been able to bring our causes to the table through the medium of pornography? And specifically, how important is it that we are diverse in our creation of pornography, to promote the inclusion of all kinds of people in our work?” – Courtney Trouble, via courtneytrouble.com

Opening for Courtney will be Winnipeg’s newest up-and coming plus size burlesque group, ChubRub productions, bringing more rolls than a bread basket. These soft, sweet and sultry ladies are rolling into the 2014 Fringe with their trademark jiggles, wiggles and giggles. They offer a mouth-watering buffet of burlesque tricks, dance, skits and comedy featuring Winnipeg’s own; Rebellious Ray Eskritt, Hilarious Heather Witherden, Mouthwatering Melissa Granovsky, and Juicy Johsa Manzanilla

With words and hosting from Winnipeg’s Kate Sinclaire of Cherrystems.com.

Who is Courtney Trouble?

“Queer Porn Icon Courtney Trouble has been producing, directing, and performing in Queer Porn since 2002, and is responsible for coining the term “Queer Porn” as a genre in the mainstream industry. Nominated for 7 AVN Awards, and winner of 5 Feminist Porn Awards, Courtney Trouble’s films speak to an extremely fluid, authentic, and hardcore version of graphic sexual imagery.

Courtney Trouble’s films, like Fuckstyles, Seven Minutes In Heaven: Coming Out!, Billy Castro Does The Mission, and the Roulette series, have become the new standard in queer porn. They feature performers that run the gamut of fame, gender, and sexual orientation, such as Jiz Lee, Wolf Hudson, Dylan Ryan, Lorelei Lee, Syd Blakovich and Madison Young.” –www.courtneytrouble.com
