SAN FRANCISCO — Pink & White Productions founder and director Shine Louise Houston is among 30 queer sexuality trailblazers highlighted in the Jan/Feb 2014 double-issue of lesbian magazine, “Curve.”

Houston appears as a queer icon amongst such luminary figures as 7th century poet Sappho, Simone de Beauvoir (“The Second Sex”), feminist porn icon Annie Sprinkle, On Our Backs co-founder Susie Bright, author Jude Schell, Ilene Chaiken (“The L Word”), trans advocate and author Kate Bornstein, trans lesbian filmmaker Lana Wachowski, trans male pornstar Buck Angel, Ann Bannon (of Beebo Brinker lesbian pulp fiction fame), queer African American jazz singer Bessie Smith, pop icon Madonna, 1930's Hollywood actress and gay icon Marlene Dietrich, Cleis Press co-founder Felice Newman, photographer Phyllis Christopher, authors Rita Mae Brown, Virginia Woolf, fellow pornographers Tristan Taormino, Nina Hartley, Carol Queen, and others.

Houston noted that she is also a prior recipient of Curve Magazine's "Lesbian Sex Culture Curator" Award, referencing her influence and interests in diverse representation in CrashPadSeries.com and her projects such as PinkLabel.tv that help establish and support emerging queer filmmakers.

The director's other career highlights include appearing in the Human Sexuality textbook 4th edition, being honored with a PorYes Award from Europe's first Feminist Porn Awards, and being named the Feminist Porn Award's "Visionary" in recognition for having jump-started the queer porn movement.
