Porn vs. the mainstream: dealing with journalists

Panel

Free Admission, in English

Moderation: Yvette Luhrs (activist/media specialist, Amsterdam)

With: Jennifer Lyon Bell (Blue Artichoke Films, Amsterdam), Jiz Lee (performer, San Francisco), Lina Bembe (performer, Berlin), Shine Louise Houston (Pink and White Productions, San Francisco) and more

Pornography in general and feminist pornography especially are often a point of interest for journalists. The relationship between us, the porn community, and the mainstream media is a troubled one.

Although we are passionate about our work and our activism, getting the message out to the general public seems to be an art in itself. A lot of time is spent educating people outside the porn community, often unpaid. Colleagues are engaged to take part in interviews and personal and collective stories are shared ‑ all this is done while being aware that the journalist might just run off with our stories.

This panel addresses how we choose to interact with journalists, if we think we need the mainstream at all and how to deal with misrepresentations. The panel is an invitation to start a broader discussion on how we can make our media advocacy more inclusive, ethical and healthy.
