T-Wood Pictures Expands Online Reach

SAN FRANCISCO — Gay and transgender production company T-Wood Pictures welcomes the social networking site ButchBoi.com into its cluster of websites.

In addition, T-Wood is planning on launching its own video-focused membership site in the next few weeks.

T-Wood Pictures began as Trannywood Pictures in 2005, as an off shoot of EROS, the Center for Safe Sex in San Francisco, to reach an underserved population with safe sex education and community based porn.

In 2011 T-Wood's sibling production company, Dolores Park Studios, was started to appeal to the growing queer, all gender audience. Butch Boi was started in Lansing, Mich., as an event promoter, retail website and a producer of porn for ftms, butches, bois and all who love them.

As Butch Boi moved to San Francisco, the focus moved from retail and planning community events to social networking and support of existing community events, such as International Ms. Leather and Butch Voices.

The transfer of ButchBoi.com started March 1 and will continue for the next few months.

"It's a great fit, since many of T-Wood's talent and fans are already members of ButchBoi.com," said Ash, the creator of the site. "I'm glad that the queer SF porn community can pick this up and continue to grow the butchboi community."

Currently, ButchBoi has nearly 1,100 members, the company said.

EROS started off as a sex positive community center in 1992 focusing on sex education for much of the LGBT community. While the club and T-Wood Pictures are clearly for male identified folks, Dolores Park Studios and now ButchBoi.com are geared toward a broader range of queer folks.
