Good Vibrations' Independent Erotic Film Festival Presents A Celebration of Sleaze! Gay Porn Panel, Clip Show, and Screening of "Smut Capital of America"
Get Inside the Gay Porn Industry and Discover a New Kind of Local Pride
San Francisco, CA -- (August 25th, 2011): San Francisco has a lot to be proud of, and its starring role in America’s porn industry ranks at the top of the list. Find out how porn got its start in our fair city and hear about the current state of the gay porn industry at A Celebration of Sleaze! Gay Porn Panel, Clip Show and Screening on Tuesday, September 20th at the SF LGBT Center as part of Good Vibrations’ 6th annual Indie Erotic Film Festival.
The lesson in local pride begins with Michael Stabile presenting his short film “Smut Capital of America.” In 1970, San Francisco became the first city in the country to effectively legalize pornography, turning the city into a boomtown for erotic movies. Featuring John Waters, Kathryn Reed, Don Romesburg, Habib Carouba, Jeffrey Escoffier, Marty Rosenthal, Vaughn Kincey, John Karr, this documentary explores the people who fomented this cinematic revolution and made a fortune changing the way Americans thought about sex.
