Ticket Policy

We’re aware many of you are making travel arrangements and we wanted to give you an update on our ticketing policy for 2024.

For the last two years, we pivoted to an invite-only industry event. This ensures that we can provide a safe environment for all attendees and guests and make it easier for us to manage the numbers. Our generous sponsors cover the costs for nominees.

Each model nominee (if you are nominated in the categories Best New Face, Best Solo Model, Best Hardcore Performer, Ms. Unique, Best Internet Personality, Best Non-US Performer, Best Non-Trans Performer, Best Transmasc Performer, Best Cam Performer, and Best Content Creator are able to RSVP onto the guest list. Also, any models who have worked with Grooby are eligible to RSVP to the guest list.

NOTE: We do not issue any plus ones to nominated performers, but we do have a limited number of passes that your guest may be able to purchase under specific conditions (see the bottom of this page) – all income from these purchases will be donated to Free Speech Coalition or other worthy causes.

Sponsors usually purchase table seating, and you may be invited to sit with them. There is no other table seating on the main floor but there is a lovely Loge area and upstairs balcony that have plenty of open seating (and is the best place to watch the show). Sponsors all get a set number of tickets and we will have to be strict on those also as the sponsor seating areas are limited.

SPONSORS RSVP directly at kristel@grooby.com.

This year we will not be giving passes to content creators, industry, or others unless they fulfill one of the above conditions, but we do have affordable sponsorship opportunities for those in this area.

If you believe you should be on the guest list, or want to attend but don’t fulfill the above criteria, please note on the RSVP. We will not be able to accommodate everyone and we ask for your understanding that this is an industry event for trans performers and those who work with them.


Purchased Guest Passes:
We understand if you want your partner to attend with you, although most nominees come with other nominees or industry guests. If you are invited by a sponsor and they have a seat for you, then you need to check that they have seating for your guest also, we do not have spare/extra table seating. If you want to purchase a guest pass, it’s $125, which covers the pre-party and the awards. Your guest must be either a known/verifiable member of the adult industry, or able to supply us with a copy of their ID before the event if requested. This is to ensure all performers’ safety and welfare.

MEDIA : Media will be strictly limited to industry publications and news/entertainment companies. Only those with TEA Media Passes will be allowed access to red carpet or to bring professional recording equipment into the events. Personal cameras are allowed.

Please don’t be offended if we can’t offer you a free ticket. Over 60% of our tickets go to sponsors, models, press, and VIPs which help make it such a great event. We hope to make some income from the ticket sales to offset costs.
