2019 TEA Dates Announced

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Transgender Erotica Awards (also known as the TEAs) announced their 2019 dates for their upcoming show. The three-day event will be held March 15-17 at the Avalon and Bardot both located in Hollywood, CA.

The TEAs continues to be the only event of its kind, celebrating the accomplishments of the trans adult industry. From its humble beginnings as an online competition hosted by Grooby, it has since expanded into a three-day event drawing in guests from all over the world.

“Although it is a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, the TEAs are consistently the highlight of my work year,” says TEA Executive Producer, Kristel Penn. “Steven and I start planning the event earlier and earlier each year to ensure everything goes smoothly when the time comes.”

“As we head into our eleventh year of the TEAs, we’re aiming for our best show yet,” adds Grooby owner, Steven Grooby. “We’re hoping to see many of our longtime sponsors return, in addition to expanding our reach overall. Sponsors should feel good knowing their contribution directly contributes to the show and celebrating the hard work of the trans adult industry.”

Steven Grooby will be attending TES Prague and XBIZ Berlin. He will be available for meetings and can be reached at steven@grooby.com to schedule.

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. 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.

TEA Sponsored Femme Domme Fatale’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Party this Saturday at Bar Sinister

 Los Angeles, CA – Grooby, Kink, and Buck Angel are proud to join forces to announce their sponsorship of Femme Domme Fatale’s upcoming Alice in Wonderland Costume and Tea Party this Saturday at Bar Sinister in Hollywood, CA. The event marks the closing ceremony of the 2018 TEAs and welcomes TEA winner Domino Presley as their special guest of the evening.

“The Transgender Erotica Awards mark my anniversary in adult erotica. This year we celebrated ten years of the TEAs and I celebrated eight years in the industry,” said Domino Presley. “I remember when the awards were held in a tiny bar in NoHo, but look where we are now! A massive theatre with a line of girls in dazzling evening gowns and men in tuxedos waiting in line for a very glamorous red carpet event. Every year it gets bigger and better and I love that I have not only been able to watch this baby grow but also have helped almost every year since being in porn. The awards are more like a family reunion to me than an award show and I’m excited to be part of the TEAs closing event.”

Femme Domme Fatale will be hosted by 6 and stars Mistress Bella Bathory as the one and only Alice, with performances by Domino Presley, Siouxsie Q, Queerella Fistalot, Ash Hollywood, and Michael Vegas.

“Bar Sinister has been my second home since relocating to LA, and I’m so moved that they are making space for LGBTQ and sex working communities right in the heart of Hollywood,” added Siouxsie Q. “Femme Domme Fatale is so honored to share the stage with the incomparable Domino Presley, and overjoyed to be collaborating with my alma mater, Kink.com, along with Grooby and the TEAs. It just feels so right! Saturday is going to be the party of my dreams, and I can’t wait.”

This is the ninth year of Bar Sinister’s Alice in Wonderland Costume and Tea Party. Cover is $15 all night, with $5 off if you come dressed in theme. Also featuring DJs Tommy and Jpeg of Dark Future and Club 01. Visit their official website at BarSinister.net.

“I’m extremely happy to see TS Virtual Lovers and Smart Media Star get involved in our show,” said Steven Grooby. “I’ve know their company for many years but they’ve only recently came into the trans space with their excellent VR line with some of the best trans models around. As a proponent and a lover of virtual reality, I’ve really enjoyed their content and I’m proud that they can come on board as a major sponsor for this year’s show.”

“When we first started in the VR adult business, I knew that I had to have TS stars represented as a very important niche,” said TS Virtual Lovers founder & CEO René Pour. “This was despite the fact that t-Girls were under-represented in Europe compared to other parts of the world. I am on a mission to help change that.”

Robbi Racks Sponsors ‘Ms. Unique’ Category at 2018 TEAs

Las Vegas, NV – TS star Robbi Racks proudly announced her continuing support of the Transgender Erotica Awards and sponsorship of the 2018 Ms. Unique Award. Racks herself is a TEA nominee this year for Best Internet Personality, a category she previously sponsored for two years. She also owns two successful TS websites, RobbiRacks.XXX and RobbiRacks.Com.

“I believe in the heart of the Transgender Erotica Awards and how focused the organizers are on helping with the success of so many transgender performers,” said Robbi Racks.

As a TEA annual sponsor for three years and counting, the mature Robbi Racks is a Stepmom to many of the younger performers and says that her sponsorship is just one way she can be a positive role model to the trans community. As one of the newest transgender film producers for VTS Video Productions and the creator of the RobbiWraps Condom brand, this made a perfect fit for her to sponsor the coveted Ms. Unique Award.

Ms. Unique, previously known as Ms. Non-Typical and then the Voluptuous Diva Award, recognizes models or performers who may get overlooked by the other mainstream awards, yet bring a unique look or style to their work.

The 2018 TEAs kick off with an official pre-party at the Bardot on March 9. The red carpet and awards ceremony will be on March 11 at the Avalon Theater. The awards will be hosted by viral sensation TEA Lifetime Achievement recipient TS Madison.
