Who is Courtney Trouble?

Courtney Trouble is an artist, academic writer, and a cofounder of the queer porn movement. They coined the term Queer Porn in 2003 to describe the unique work they were making outside the influence of the adult industry. If you are looking for said porn, please visit TROUBLEfilms.Com where you can shop for films and shorts or get a monthly membership. Thank you.


Courtney holds 3 college degrees and is working on their second master’s degree, to be completed in 2019. Their written work has been published in places as different as AVN, Bitch Magazine, and Cosmo. Through pornography, they have also been the focal point of many academic projects as the stories of queer porn and Courtney’s work become historically important. Their photographs are iconic and were recently published in a 39 issue one-of-a-kind magazine series that works as an experimental DIY retrospective.

CourtneyTrouble.Com is Courtney’s CV and personal website, documenting the writing, art, and works in progress throughout their practice.
