'Queer Porn Americana' Tour Goes Northwest

The creative team of Courtney Trouble and Chelsea Poe are going on tour. The pair are headed to Seattle, Olympia, and Vancouver to show Chelsea Poe's much heralded feature Queer Porn Americana, classic works by Courtney Trouble, and what they describe as "a few major surprises along the way."

Their appearances will be as follows:

June 29, Seattle
Fucking Against Fascism: Queer Porn Screening & Discussion.

Courtney Trouble and Chelsea Poe will be at Gay City, Seattle's LGBTQ Center, to watch some queer porn and have a discussion about porn and politics—and they're only too happy for attendees to bring their ideas and questions!

"Our main feature is Queer Porn Americana by Chelsea Poe," the pair wrote in their press release. "We will also look at raw footage from Chelsea's work-in-progress, Fucking Against Fascism. Both films riff on individuality and political motivation behind porn performance. Interviews and intersectionality frame each sex scene, exploring why sex and politics remain intrinsically connected. Before Chelsea's features, we will be screening a short film by Courtney Trouble (title to be announced) and Cheeto Side of Heaven by Aeliana Nicole. After the films, we will have a Q&A with Chelsea and Courtney, with the potential of a few extra guests from the films."
Venue: .

June 30, Olympia, WA
Queer Porn Americana/Trouble Homecoming Show

Functioning as a punk house show, attendees will see Queer Porn Americana by Chelsea Poe, Nostalgia by Courtney Trouble, and Cheeto Side of Heaven by Aeliana Nicole as the touring acts, and local Olympia area bands and artists as the opening acts. This represents a homecoming for Courtney Trouble, who has only screened porn in Olympia twice, even though she and Chelsea started their practice there. The films presented all have distinct queer punk soundtracks, including songs by GLOSS, The Need, Veronica Lipgloss, and other locally loved acts.
