Burbank, CA – The Transgender Erotica Awards announced a new category for the upcoming show, now known as the Transcendence Award. The award was created by first-time sponsor, renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Alexander Sinclair.
The Transcendence Award celebrates the accomplishments of the performer who has been an ambassador of the industry, embodying a positive appearance and attitude toward those she works with.
Nominees for this year include Brooke Zannell, Chelsea Marie, Eva Cassini, Jordan Jay, Michelle Austin, Penny Tyler, Sasha Strokes, and Tori Mayes. This shortlist will be given to a panel of different industry judges who will vote on the winner.
“Did you ever dream you were flying? Did you ever dream you were performing before 20,000 and they loved everything you did? This award the Transcendence award is about that. It’s about making gold from dust,” said Dr. Sinclair. “This award is about these special few who deliver an experience that takes us beyond our normal boundaries. These artists use their creative skill and imagination to produce a work that lets us revel in emotional and physical pleasure. These exceptional people make us forget our stresses and problems and entertain us with stimulation and excitement, taking us to a better understanding of who we are and what we want.”
Dr. Alexander Sinclair is a board certified surgeon who offers a wide array of services, including breast enhancement, buttock enhancement, facial feminization, hair grafting, and gender reassignment. Visit his official website at www.TGSurgery.com for more information on his practice.
His experience with gender variance began in the 1970s as a college student when he acted at the LaMama Theater with some of the stars of Club 82. In 1979, he did a plastic surgery rotation at the Stanford University Transgender Clinic, but unfortunately the academic surgical program was phased out. As his own clinical practice evolved, his transgender patient population increased and he became interested in serving the trans community.
“We’ve been developing and growing the award show over a number of years and the aim was always to try and attract more mainstream sponsors to sit alongside our adult industry sponsors,” said Grooby Productions owner Steven Grooby. “Changing the name of the show was the catalyst for many to look at opportunities and we’re very happy to have been able to attract one of Los Angeles’ top cosmetic surgeons. Dr. Sinclair is our exclusive surgeon sponsor and we look forward to entertaining him and his guests at the show.”
