Are you not shooting queer porn anymore?
Not really. I found out the hard way that just because someone calls themselves ethical and revolutionary doesn’t mean they are. I have a warm spot in my heart for Crashpad but I try not to take up space. Crashpad shoots all kinds of queers and bodies that aren’t shown anywhere else. I have the privilege of being able to shoot for other companies. My heart kind of broke over queer porn recently. I have seen queer pornographers behave just as badly as their counterparts. I prefer transparency
cut from my recent piece: “Although we have other aspects of our lives, like other jobs, hobbies, volunteer work, families, communities - we are considered first and foremost to be whores. Even after we leave the industry, we have a scarlet W on our chests. We aren’t being punished for being criminals; we are punished for using the power of our sexuality in public to support ourselves.”
