Pink & White Productions Voted 'Best Porn Studio' by S.F. Bay Guardian
SAN FRANCISCO — Pink & White Productions has been named the San Francisco Bay Guardian's "Best Porn Studio" in its 2014 Best of the Bay Readers' Poll.
For the issue, the independent publication polled its local and online readership for favorite San Francisco Bay Area businesses.
The company believes that the fact that a small, queer, woman of color-owned company received the recognition speaks to the hard work and unique vision of Pink & White's founding director Shine Louise Houston and the success of her projects, including queer CrashPadSeries.com, and the VOD hub for indie and emerging adult filmmakers, PinkLabel.tv.
Reflective of San Francisco's grassroots ethos, the company says it has long worked within an "anti-capitalist capitalist" approach. Pink & White acts as a catalyst for the careers of several new producers through its emerging pornographers series “Point of COntact,” CrashCourse educational resources and internal support.
The win comes bittersweet, as it was announced that the San Francisco Bay Guardian’s Oct.13 Best of the Bay issue will be its final print.
“Pink & White Productions extends its gratitude to the writers and workers behind the weekly publication's 48 years of uncensored journalism,” the company said in a news release.
“Pink & White also thanks the readers who voted, as well as the company's production crew and talented performers, without whom their success would not be possible," it continued. "It also thanks its loyal viewers and supportive industry allies.”
Pink & White is approaching its 10th anniversary in 2015.
