Grooby to Sponsor Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto

Grooby, the leader in trans erotica, recently announced its first-time sponsorship at the upcoming Feminist Porn Awards to be held in Toronto, Canada.

“As we’re becoming more of a lifestyle company as well as erotica it’s important for us at Grooby to support and be part of other lifestyles that complement our areas (and vice-versa),” said Grooby owner Steven Grooby. “I’ve heard only great things about the Feminist Porn Awards and we’re looking forward to sponsoring and attending the show.”

“Feminist porn breaks the stereotypes not only of mainstream tropes but also of what kinds of sex feminists like to watch; mild to wild, straight, queer and/or trans, feminist porn is really for everybody!” said Carlyle Jansen, owner Good For Her and producer of the Feminist Porn Awards.

Founded in 1996, Grooby Productions is based in Los Angeles and is the leading producer of transgender erotica. Operating over 30 membership websites, the company has numerous popular DVD lines released with Third World Media and operates the http://www.GroobyNetwork.com, which gives models an unique opportunity to own and manage their own solo site.

The Feminist Porn Awards was created by former Good For Her store manager Chanelle Gallant. The concept was first discussed back in 2006, when the company noticed a huge jump in options the store was able to offer customers. People of all kinds were getting behind the camera to produce direct, and/or star in films that reflected the kinds of sex they wanted to see on film. People of color, trans folks, queers, and lesbians in particular were also directing films that featured their communities with respect and without being fetishized. Gallant suggested creating the Feminist Porn Awards as an event that recognized, endorsed, and celebrated those who were making strides within these genres. Over the years, the event has moved to larger venues to accommodate its growing size. In addition, they have also added a separate screening night that showcases a diversity of the year’s sexy submissions and other hosted events for featured guests.
