Transgender Erotica Awards

Domino Presley Announced as TEA’s Mistress of Ceremonies

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Transgender Erotica Awards proudly announces TEA winner Domino Presley as their 2019 Mistress of Ceremonies. The upcoming TEAs will be held at the historic Avalon in Hollywood on March 17, 2019.

“We’ve been so lucky to have some truly amazing hosts of the show,” said Steven Grooby.
“Jujubee and Madison really helped build our profile up and their professionalism and presence, I believe, have been a big part of the show. To keep things fresh, we’ve always wanted to rotate hosts. There was really only ever one choice and I was pretty confident it would be something that Domino would both enjoy and excel at doing. She knows so many of the girls personally – and having been in the industry now on both sides of the camera, she has a unique viewpoint.  Kristel and I are both looking forward to working with her up to the show.”

“I’ve never been more excited or nervous for something before,” added Domino Presley. “I’m still in shock that Steven asked me to host and I’m extremely grateful. I have a performance background and am far from shy on the microphone, so this should be a trip. If everything goes as planned I’m also bringing some major entertainment and the opening of the show will be epic. I still can’t believe Steven is crazy enough to let me host…with my sense of humor! You do NOT want to miss this year’s awards.”

Domino Presley is a TEA multi-award winner based in Los Angeles, CA. She first debuted with Grooby back 2010 and since then has worked for every major trans studio in the industry. In 2018, she made her directorial debut with Grooby with the release of her movie, Domino Presley’s House of Whores. Follow Domino Presley on Twitter at @DominoPresley.

The 2018 TEAs are a three-day event held in Hollywood, CA, kicking off with an official pre-party at the Bardot on March 15, a daytime fan convention on March 16, and ramping up to the awards ceremony on March 17 at the Avalon.

More details about the event will be released in the months to come. Visit their official website at theTEAShow.com. The 2019 sponsorship packages are now posted to the website here: https://theteashow.com/sponsors

Pre-Nominations Open for 2019 TEAs

LOS ANGELES, CA – Pre-nominations are now open for the 2019 TEAs. Submissions are open to the industry and the public from now until October 23, 2018, at theTEAShow.com.

“It’s that time of the year again, and although we’re five months away from the 2019 TEAs, because of our unique judging process we’re ready to start getting pre-nominations between now and Oct 23,” said Steven Grooby. “Our process remains much the same,  we accept pre-nominations from industry and fans, then our panel pares it down to the nomination list that goes to the judges. This year we’re going to make the number of nominations much tighter. I appreciate and empathize that this will mean some may get missed out, but we need to keep to the integrity of the awards and I believe this will make it more competitive.”

The TEAs, officially known as the Transgender Erotica Awards, celebrates the accomplishments of the trans adult industry. The event, now in its eleventh year, started as an online competition and since then has grown into a popular three-day event welcoming guests from all over the world.

“We have one new category this year,  Best Trans Self-Producer,” added Grooby. “So many performers are making their own content for clips type sites or selling direct, we need to be inclusive of them into this show and I think this award will reflect a different type of content and a wider range of performers.”

The eligibility period for pre-nominations runs from November 15, 2017 – November 15, 2018. Additional information and the submission form can be accessed directly at http://www.theteashow.com/pre-nomination-voting

Grooby continued, “We’ve already got a number of sponsors committed and we look forward to welcoming more. The growth and success of our show have been, in large part, due to our sponsors. This has always been an inclusive community-driven event and not a money-making venture for us. We hope that other companies that work within the trans erotica industry, such as paysites, DVD companies, dating and cam sites, and clip stores will join us in celebrating the trans performers who are the backbone of our industry.”

Media and sponsorship inquiries can be directed to kristel@grooby.com. The three-day event will kick off with a pre-party on March 15th at the Bardot, a daytime fan convention on March 16th, and finish with the popular awards ceremony on March 17th at the Avalon in Hollywood. More details about the event and the pre-nomination process will be released in the months to come. Visit their official website at theTEAShow.com.

TS Star Jacquie Blu Returns as 2018 TEA Sponsor

Los Angeles, CA – TS performer and producer Jacquie Blu is proud to announce her sponsorship of the 2018 TEAs.

“I am extremely happy to sponsor the TEA Awards again this year,” stated Jacquie Blu. “I was only an attendee in 2016, but I was a sponsor and had two nominations in 2017. This year I am making a contribution once again to help show my appreciation and support for all that you do and for the industry that I love so much.”

“I met Jacquie a few years ago when she was a TEA attendee and loved her upbeat energy,” added Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “I’m really grateful for her generosity and kind heart I think the TEAs are better for it.”

Jacquie Blu moved to California from the east coast a few years ago to pursue her dream of model and adult filmmaking. After moving west, she started collaborating with photographer Al Tom (of Altomic Visuals) and thanks to his incredible work was able to launch her official website, JacquieBlu.xxx. The site has nearly a dozen very large photo galleries over 20 video scenes for fans to enjoy. Some are BDSM scenes with Mistress Cyan at the Sanctuary LAX, with more on the horizon.

In 2016, Jacquie Blu started working with Dr. Susan Block, who is a well-known sex educator, sex therapist, and author. They produce a weekly talk show, all related to sex, kink, and the Bonobo Way. Their guests consist mainly of porn stars, Doms, Dommes, artists, authors, and more.

“I cannot describe the intense feeling I get when I realize that I am actually fulfilling a life-long passion and desire,” added Jacquie.  “To all my followers and fans, thank you all so much and I love you all. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you.”

In early 2017, Jacquie Blu started her own production company, Blu Dreamz, where she produces, directs, edits, and stars in numerous scenes with performers like Kristen Kraves, Natalie Chen, Lana Solaire, Chloe Wilcox, Riley Reyes, and many others.

Recently Jacquie became the Managing Editor for a new online TS magazine with the All Pleasure Network.
