Madison Young , your kinky girl next door, is making waves in feminism one orgasm at a time with her award winning queer production company Madison Bound Productions and her award winning nationally recognized art gallery and performance space Femina Potens. Femina Potens is a sex positive art gallery and performance space dedicated to women and transgendered artists. Madison has traveled the world with her sex positive performances, workshops, panels, art work and readings from her upcoming memoir "The Tail of a Bondage Model". Madison’s writings have been published in On Our Backs and Girlfriends Magazine and can also be found in the anthology Baby Remember My Name. Madison has been featured on MTV’s LOGO channel program Out and About, the documentary Lesbian Sex and Sexuality, Porn Today : Pushing the Limits, and was featured in Brian Alexander’s recent book release, America Unzipped
Courtney Trouble is a photographer, budding film-maker, and all around sexual creative entity jet set on exposing the queer underground for what it really is: a hot sweaty mess of love, compassion, and hot sex. She owns nofauxxx.com and just released her first movie, Roulette. To make matters worse, she's also just been published in the Canadian erotica anthology, Fist of the Spider Woman, edited by Amber Dawn.
Tobi Hill-Meyer is just about your average multiracial, pansexual, transracially inseminated queerspawn, genderqueer, transdyke, colonized mestiza, pornographer, activist, writer. After ze spent several years exclusively genderqueer identified, she transitioned to her current gender identity and began applying hir feminist background and women studies degree through her trans woman's lens. Ze then began unlearning her internalized transmisogyny and illuminating the ways in which the impact of misogyny on trans women has been left invisible to and sometimes even perpetrated by cisgender (non-trans) feminists.
Having been in mainstream "tranny" porn herself, Tobi observed that tranny porn is about as accurate a representation of trans women's sexuality as girl-on-girl porn is of lesbian sexuality. Yet when ze searched sex-positive and oppression-aware porn, she found that trans women were almost entirely absent or invisible. Following in the footsteps of her sex-positive cis-dyke sisters, when she wanted it done right Tobi decided to do it herself. And then Doing It Ourselves: The Trans Woman Porn Project was born.
She also engages in queer family work as a board co-chair of COLAGE, a national movement of children, youth, and adults with one or more lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or queer parent(s), and you can read her thoughts at the worlds largest LGBT group blog, Bilerico.com
Mimi Balfour is a Canadian television producer/director and mother of three young children. She has been in the tv business for 20 years, producing content for major networks around the world. She believes in offering women adult content that is gorgeous to watch, intelligent and has a sense of humour. Man of my Dreams is her first solo project.
Joanne Loton learned how far she would go to get a story when she let a fetishist lick her feet for a short documentary film entitled, “For the Love of Feet.” Her interests have since led her to explore sub-cultures that arise out of blue-collar factory towns and the ways that women defy stereotypes. She is currently developing a documentary about an all female punk rock band from Hamilton who are juggling their rock star ambitions with motherhood. Also in production and as a part of her MFA completion at Ryerson University in the Documentary Media Studies program - a feature documentary film about feminists who are redefining the language of pornography.
Working her way up the ranks of the Canadian television industry for over 8 years, Joanne has also worked as researcher, associate producer, and writer/director for factual entertainment, docu-drama and full-length documentary productions airing on National Geographic (International), Discovery Channel (Canada), A&E (US), History Channel, BBC4, and HBO.
