TEA17_Teaser (2)

Los Angeles, CA – Grooby announced a change in schedule for the upcoming 2017 TEAs. The event will still be held during the first weekend in March as originally planned at the Avalon in Hollywood, but is now kicking off on Friday (March 3) with an official pre-party, the second annual TEA Con on Saturday (March 4), and wrapping up with the awards on Sunday (March 5).

“I’m really happy to have been able to make this change,” stated Steven Grooby. “By switching the after-party to a pre-party on a Friday night, instead of the usual Monday, I think we’ll be able to attract a lot more party goers and people flying into town for the weekend. I’m confident there will something going on the Saturday night also, so it’s a three day festival celebrating trans erotica. This will be our should be our best year ever and I hope sponsors and fans can help us get there!”

“In addition to the scheduling shift we’ve done, we’ve also secured the Avalon as the official location of the second annual TEA Con,” added Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “I think this is a great space for performers to meet and mingle with their fans, sign autographs, and take photos.”

2017 sponsorship packages will be announced soon at theTEAShow.com. Companies and performers interested in sponsoring are encouraged to email kristel@grooby.com to be notified.

The Transgender Erotica Awards, now in its ninth year, celebrates the accomplishments of the trans adult industry and its performers.

Los Angeles, CA – Performer Nicole (a.k.a. Nikki) Montero and her website,ShelesbianPOV.com, returns to sponsor the upcoming Transgender Erotica Awards.

“I feel super excited to sponsor and attend the TEA show 2016,” stated TS star Nikki Montero. “2015 was the best year for me since the world crisis in 2008, and in South America we don’t have many glamourous shows – let’s say, mostly idiots dressing up like morons.  USA, Europe, and the UK always amaze me every time I go, always new surprises! I will be shooting more movies for SheLesbianPov.com while in America and also did a lot this year in UK and Brazil and Mexico, 2015 was a very busy year! But being busy is good, better than ‘grab your balls’ all day and complain that the government is not giving you free money.”

“Nikki has been a longtime supporter of our event and we’re very grateful for her continued support,” said Grooby’s Marketing and Editorial Director Kristel Penn. “It really means a lot to us that she also makes the long trek out to Los Angeles for her fans and to support our industry.”

ShelesbianPOV features TS on TS action with Montero herself and TS models in South America, UK, and Europe. This year she spent time in Brazil shooting sexy 19 year old trans models. Visitwww.ShelesbianPOV.com for more.

Montero has also appeared on other sites such as ShemaleYum.com, ShemalePornstar.com, and most recently Shemale.XXX where her threesome scene with Miran and Wolf Hudson is a fan favorite on the site. Fans can look forward to a busy year ahead for Montero. In 2016, she plans to shoot the first “Shemale Porn Musical” movie with real-time singing, acting, and dancing to be recorded in Santiago de Chile.

Transgender Erotica Awards to be Held at Avalon Hollywood

TEA-Flyer

 
Burbank, CA – The seventh annual Transgender Erotica Awards will be held the Avalon Hollywood on February 15, 2015. The Official After Party will be held at the Bardot in Hollywood on February 16, 2015.

The Transgender Erotica Awards (The TEAs) was originally created in 2007 and originally known as The Tranny Awards before changing it’s name earlier this year,  started as an online competition voted by a panel of industry judges. There were only a handful of categories and Grooby Productions sponsored all of the cash prizes. As interest grew, it was expanded into an actual event and has been hosted at a number of different venues in the Los Angeles area. To accommodate the growth of the show, this year the TEAs is moving to Avalon Hollywood.

“We’ve had such growth with the event over the last few years that it was time to move to a larger and more prestigious venue to ensure there is plenty of room for all our sponsors, nominees, and guests.  Unlike previous years, there will be seating available for all attendees and we will be able to retain the ability for all the models and guests to mingle and meet in the large bar areas,”  said Steven Grooby.  “We also learned a lot from last year’s After Party and have renamed it ‘The TEA Party.’  This year it will be higher end socializing mix where industry and fans can network, mingle, and party.  We’re all very excited about this move and have sponsors already committed to help us put on the best show yet.”


From The Beatles first west coast performance in 1964 to ABC’s hit television variety show ‘The Hollywood Palace,’ the Avalon is one of Hollywood’s most historic landmarks and a staple in LA nightlife culture.  Avalon Hollywood is located at 1735 Vine Street in Hollywood, CA.

Tranny Awards Changes Name to Transgender Erotica Awards

Burbank, CA – Grooby Productions recently announced TS adult industry event, the Tranny Awards, will be re-branded as the Transgender Erotica Awards (The TEAs). The event remains the only of its kind and exclusively celebrates the accomplishments of the TS adult industry.

“We started the show as an online event for a bit fun and never anticipated the interest and growth of the show to become the main annual event for trans women and men in the adult industry,” said Grooby Productions owner Steven Grooby. “When we named the show the ‘Tranny Awards’ in 2007 the climate was different and the usage of the word ‘tranny’ was appropriate as a catchy title in an online porn event. While I personally believe, within the context of porn, that ‘tranny’ has its place as a descriptor in the same way many words have their place only in porn, I do understand why some people have become frustrated with its usage here.

“As we aim to be inclusive of all areas of transgender erotica and are looking to broaden the appeal of the show to mainstream media, we believed it was time to re-brand the event to the Transgender Erotica Awards – or The TEAs. The acronym works especially well since ‘T’ is used within the community and we’re going to have some fun with the promotions (the after party, for example, will be ‘The TEA Party’). I’d like to thank the extended trans adult community for their input and feedback over the last few months. We will be producing a show that the whole transgender adult community can be proud of.”

The Transgender Erotica Awards (The TEAs) was originally created in 2007 and started solely as an online competition voted by a panel of industry judges. There were only a handful of categories and Grooby sponsored all of the cash prizes.

As interest grew, it was expanded into an actual event and hosted at a several different nightlife venues in the Los Angeles area, before moving to a full-scale theater in Glendale. The event now has over twenty categories, including special awards sponsored by other industry companies, many of which include donated cash prizes.

Last year the event expanded their categories to include Best FTM Performer, with support from sponsors such as Buck Angel and James Darling. This year also marked the first year the event included the category of Voluptuous Diva, awarded to the best BBW TS performer of the year.

This year’s event, hosted last month at the Beyond the Stars Palace in Glendale, also saw a 25% jump in attendance from last year, with nearly a 300% increase in livestream viewership. As the event continues to flourish, Grooby is constantly looking for ways to improve the show and honor the TS adult community.

More information will be made available in the upcoming months on grooby.com and TGeroticaAwards.com

“It’s so important for us to include sites like Bob’s into this award show,” said Grooby Productions owner Steven Grooby.  “Not only is he a fixture of the Los Angeles scene, but his site is one of the longest running TS sites that show all unique content.  It’s great to see that all these companies can put aside their competition with other companies who are also sponsoring and come together for what this night is all about – celebrating the models and the producers who make our niche so unique amongst the mainstream adult online erotica.”
