I’ve got questions about The Feminist Porn Awards, can you answer them? Can I buy tickets to The Feminist Porn Awards?
The Feminist Porn Awards and The Feminist Porn Conference are part of a block of events in April celebrating feminist porn in Toronto, and they are produced by two separate entities with two separate ticketing systems. The Feminist Porn Awards are produced by Good for Her, and you can find information and tickets on the Good For Her website; you can also email jennifer(at)goodforher.com.
