Shine Louise Houston Launches PINKLABEL: Digital Distribution for Emerging & Independent Adult Filmmakers
Houston’s new fair-trade online distribution creates profitable queer-owned streaming hub
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (November 7th) — Shine Louise Houston is no stranger to independent adult video production. The feminist porn award-winning director and founder of Pink & White Productions, Houston has produced feature films and runs her independent websites with robust membership and affiliate programs, complete with mobile-optimization and live-streaming.
Based in San Francisco, CA, Houston’s company boasts a sustainable business model and has experienced increased financial growth through marketing progressive, high-quality pornography to sex-positive viewers hungry for alternative depictions of sex-positive and diverse sexuality.
Following her mission and ethical business practices, Houston’s new project PINKLABEL is a fair-trade digital distribution outlet within Pink & White on Demand designed for emerging and independent adult filmmakers. Emerging filmmakers will find enthusiastic audiences and exposure, as well as ethical, fair-trade commission for their work. PINKLABEL presents curated content that showcases acclaimed feminist filmmakers who share Houston’s values.
PINKLABEL launches with several notable studios featuring progressive pornography, including sex education leaders T-Wood Pictures!
T-Wood Pictures is a small San Francisco based, safe sex, educational and porn production company bringing together a diversity of trans and other queer men. Their first film, Cubbyholes: Trans Men In Action was nominated for Best Alternative Release by the 2008 GAYVN Awards and their second film, Couch Surfers: Trans Men in Action, was also nominated for Best Alternative Release by the 2009 GAYVN Awards… and their third film, Couch Surfers 2, was released in December of 2009 and has been nominated for a Feminist Porn Award. Their most recent movie, Trannywood Gone Wild, was released in September 2010.
Says T-Wood: “We believe men are hot. After all, we are men who have sex with men. Our models are in various points in their transition, and we support guys who don’t want or plan on being on hormones or don’t want any surgery, as well as those who do. Thus, our films have diverse men with diverse body types.”
PINKLABEL features progressive porn studios including films by legendary pornographer and artist Annie Sprinkle, star performers-turned star-producers duo Dylan Ryan and Rozen DeBowe of the newly minted Femmerati Productions, queer porn dynamite Trouble Films presenting work by Courtney Trouble and Tina Horn, art porn powerhouse Carlos Batts of C Batts Fly and his muse April Flores, transmale sex education leaders T-Wood Pictures, Harvard-graduate Jennifer Lyon Bell and her exquisite Blue Artichoke Films, Transwomen Porn Project director Tobi Hill-Meyer, and the feminist porn award-winning queer films of Shine Louise Houston and Pink & White Productions.
