ABOUT THE PRESENTERS:
Dubbed "Dyke Porn's New Mastermind" by The Advocate, SHINE LOUISE HOUSTON creates adult entertainment that exposes the complexities of queer sexual desire. Taking inspiration from many different sources, her company Pink and White Productions is dedicated to producing sexy and exciting images that reflect todayâs blurred gender lines and fluid sexualities. An important part of the next big wave of women porn producers, Shine says, âThere is power in creating images, and forâ a woman of color and a queer to take that powerâ I donât find it exploitative; I think itâs necessary.â Pink and White brought home a 2009 Feminist Porn Award!
