HUMP!

A festival.

Of short home-made porn films, made mostly by locals from Seattle and Portland, and which are destroyed after the last viewing so people can get to be porn stars or pornographers just temporarily.

With no judging based on body type, gender or fetish represented.

With no commercial aim, without even the aim of pleasing the general public, the main purpose being personal expression and a communal celebration of that.

With 20 or so really diverse shorts, which can really take you out of your comfort zone.

For me, all this is what makes this event so valuable.  Whatever gives people new avenues for self-expression in a safe space.  And on top of that in a fun way?  Thanks Dan Savage for bringing "Hump!" to Toronto!
