Feminist Porn Award Recaps, Part. 2

Yesterday I recapped the actual awards show for you guys, so today, I am all about the after awards celebrating and the next night’s Feisty Feminist Porn on the Big Screen.

Here are a few after shots of the 2009 FPA Winners!

Syd and her glass butt plug!

Syd and Courtney Trouble get together to show off their awards.

Syd and Jiz with Madison Young double fisting her plugs.

Dylan Ryan rocks her Heartthrob Award!

Courtney Trouble shows us just how diverse she can get with her Most Deliciously Diverse Cast award.

And we can’t forget about Twitter. Syd made sure to tweet the awards during the night.

And I was super excited to hang out with Jiz Lee. We’ve talked on email, but this was our first time meeting face to face. Don’t we look shy?

And speaking of Lee’s, I finally got to meet Alison Lee, the manager of Good For Her and the one that put the whole Feminist Porn Awards together. Yay Alison!

Plus Alison introduced me to her friend Lucas, who might look familiar from our Dinah Shore post, dueting with Margaret… or maybe in our Mixtape Rewind from Friday.  Yep, it’s Lucas Silveira from The Cliks! 

The whole night was amazing and shortly after these pictures were taken, I hopped the streetcar back to my hotel and called it a night.  But not before meeting a bunch of awesome Canadian queers from the awards on the street car also heading home.  Gotta love a mass transit meet up!

The next day I nursed a bit of a hangover at brunch with Alison Lee, Courtney Trouble, Dylan Ryan and two fabulous Good For Her folks, Chase and Eliza, then went wandering for a little while (ok fine, I went to buy shoes for that night… sometimes I don’t pack my suitcase so well – four pairs of heels but nothing comfortable execpt slide on vans… unacceptable!).

As night fell, it was time for the Feisty Feminist Porn on the Big Screen screening!  I met up with Courtney and Dylan on the streetcar and we headed over to a pre-party at Good For Her founder Carlyle Jansen’s house.  It was the perfect time to chat with people about the previous night, as well as just get to hang out with all these people I talk to online, but never get to enjoy talking to face to face.  All the SF queers were in attendance, as well as all the awesome Good Her Her folks.

After the party we went over to the screening, which was really great.  I love that Good For Her does both the awards and a night for people to check out some of the nominated movies and other amazing pieces that deserve a looksie.  This year on the screen was Madison Young’s Perversions of Lesbian Lust, Vol. 1, Courtney Trouble’s Roulette, Tobi Hill-Meyer’s Doing It Ourselves: The Trans Women Porn Project (yay for trans women porn!!), Mimi Balfour’s Man Of My Dreams and Women Will Come, a documentary about feminist porn by Joanne Loton.  All the movies were exceptional and we were lucky to get a panel discussion with each of the directors/filmmakers after the clips were shown.

From L-R:  Courtney Trouble, Madison Young, Mimi Balfour, Tobi Hill-Meyer and Joanne Loton

All in all, the weekend was amazing and all the folks I met were really fun, smart, sexy and total feminist badasses.  Good For Her knows how to throw a celebration!!  Next year is the big 5th year anniversary.  I can’t wait to see what they got up their sleeves!

    3) I wish I could rub up against Lucas Silveira.

    4) You lucky lady you!
