With regret, we’ve taken the decision to cancel this year’s live event. With open-ended travel and meeting restrictions in most countries, and that many of our nominees and sponsors have mentioned that they’d be unable to afford to attend a rescheduled event. The show also celebrates content and models performances for the previous year, and it’s already starting to become too dated.
Our compromise, is that we’ll be broadcasting for free, a fully produced show on Sunday May 10th at 7pm PST on Grooby247.com. This will consist of presenters and guests announcing the nominees and winners from their own homes. We hope the show will be dynamic and fun, and bring a little entertainment to those stuck at home, and the many key workers whom we thank.
The original show was due to take place on the weekend of 13-15th March. We found out late on the night of the 11th that all clubs and events were to be canceled. By this time, we had many guests and nominees already in Los Angeles, all backdrops and red carpets had been built and programs printed. It was hoped we would be able to reschedule but how things have unfolded have shown this to be impossible. We empathize with everyone who was inconvenienced by these changes and thank them for their understanding. All ticket holders have been refunded or offered to hold their tickets until next year.
I’d also like to offer my thanks and appreciation to our presenting sponsor, ManyVids and our other sponsors, Bad Dragon, Streamate, Hankey’s Toys, JustFor.Fans, TSSurgery.com, Xbiz, Micha Angela, FanCentro, Chaturbate, Wicked, Aiden Starr, Gamma Entertainment, Pornhub, LadyGold, Transfixed, Evil Angel, Gender X, RAX Entertainment and SluttyWolfe/ShiriAllwood for their understanding during this situation.
I hope you can all join us on May 10th. There will be streaming options for the show to view after that date.
The TEA Show 2021 will happen. It will be bigger, brighter and more fabulous than ever before. We invite all trans models, studios, industry and fans to join us in what will be our greatest event to date. We will celebrate twice as hard, to make up for missing this year.
Please stay safe and healthy.
