For many people, trans or not, pornography is the first point of contact with trans identities, communities, and subcultures.
 
Always a popular niche, demand for trans pornography has significantly risen in recent years. No longer the domain of a handful of small studios, trans porn is now produced by transnational porn empires and is becoming a staple of commercial pornography production. To date, trans studies has not effectively engaged with the topic of trans porn, while pornography scholarship has largely neglected it as a genre of significance. The contributors to this issue—a mix of scholars and industry insiders—fill that gap and provide an overview of this emerging area of inquiry. Articles include an examination of trans micropornography (user-made remixes shared among fans), a history of two pioneers of mainstream trans pornography, and a photo-essay of portraits by Rae Threat.
