Queer and Trans Porn Embody Sexual Self-Reclamation through Objectification of the Self as Other

Queer and Trans [qt] Porn embodies the symbolization of sexual self-reclamation through objectification of the self as subject-object, as other. We will explore some current qt porn makers and T4T as a self-fetishization/objectification, as it embodies reclamation, self-love and community-love that is healing. The empowerment of disabled qt individuals in sex work as a means to economic liberation as well as overcoming stigma associated with being disabled is undeniable. When additional intersectional identities are added the impacts increase. For a queer, trans, disabled, indigenous, and/or black person of color sex work could be life saving. In order for it to not be exploitative though the subject-object must have autonomy as well as empowered control over the content. As enthusiastic consent is important in our interpersonal relationships, it is even more important in these professional relationships. We will also discuss how to vet for ethical consumption.
