Pink & White Receives Multiple XBIZ Nominations
Industry Recognizes Feminist, Queer Porn
SAN FRANCISCO (November 20th) — Bay Area progressive porn company Pink & White Productions, creators of queer and independent adult cinema through its films and websites, has been recognized by the Los Angeles adult industry with multiple nominations in the 2014 XBiz Awards.
Feminist Porn Release of the Year: OCCUPIED
The first to be recognized is Pink & White Productions’ first short narrative film, OCCUPIED: a queer hardcore romance for the 99%. When an Occupy protester (Maggie Mayhem) dares to strike back at a brutal cop (Kathryn Dupri), the chase is on. Officer Dupri soon finds better uses for her baton, and Maggie’s neither passive nor resistant. But can a cop be trusted? Or is all fair in love and class war? Artfully edited and beautifully explicit, OCCUPIED keeps you guessing from start to stop. Directed byShine Louise Houston, OCCUPIED was conceived by porn performer, trans advocate and noted Feminist Porn Award’s Heartthrob, Drew DeVeaux. The film also features legendary Feminist Porn iconAnnie Sprinkle (herself a champion of sex worker rights and health care) and her wife and artistic collaborator Elizabeth Stephens (in a nonsexual role).

“OCCUPIED has been my favorite porn project to date,” says star Maggie Mayhem, who draws from her experience as a supporter of the Oakland and New Haven Occupy camps. Her project with partner Ned Mayhem, “Meet the Mayhems,” documented Oakland’s police action on the October 2011 raid. Maggie spent time with the New Haven camp and visited City Hall with them in February of 2012.
OCCUPIED had a World Premiere at the 2013 PornFilmFestival Berlin in Germany, and is available Video on Demand at PinkLabel.tv where it received a celebrated web release.
Specialty Site of the Year: CrashPadSeries.com
Based on the cult classic The Crash Pad, which was awarded “Best Dyke Sex Scene” at the inaugural Feminist Porn Award ceremony, CrashPadSeries.com is a one-of-a-kind membership site and a virtual hotbed of queer sexuality. Known for it’s portrayal of genuine queer women’s sexuality, and with a mission devoted to exploring diverse genders and desires, CrashPad is proud of the recognition from peers in the “mainstream” Los Angeles adult industry.
Pink & White Productions extends the congratulations to the cast and crew, and gratitude for sharing their sexuality, creativity, and articulate dialogue to create the best site possible for its community of performers and loyal audience members.
“Seeing CrashPad really validated how I had sex, my body, and my sexuality in a way, that I rarely saw in other forms of pornography.” – Chelsea Poe, site fan (and now performer!)
Specialty Site of the Year: PinkLabel.tv
Just a year after its launch, PinkLabel.tv is well-primed to receive the nomination and mainstream adult industry attention.
