San Francisco, CA- Shemale Yum is excited to showcase a fantastic hardcore scene between Grooby Girl and Yum Model of the Month, Holly Parker, and 2015 Transgender Erotica Awards Nominee Ruckus. This unique set features everything from beginning outdoors to a steamy suck and fuck session between these two. Their chemistry was evident even before the scene starts by including a little action in the car on the way to the shoot. Honestly, we couldn’t make this up, and it’s precisely the reason both of these recognized performers made for a perfect set together. We’re just glad we were there get it all on film.

Burbank, CA – FTM performer and trans activist Buck Angel will be sponsoring the Best FTM Scene category at the upcoming Transgender Erotica Awards. This is the first time the category will be included at the event.

“Thank you to TEA for making an award show dedicated to the transgender genre in the adult industry,” said FTM star Buck Angel. “Now we can celebrate our own successes and what we bring to the industry with pride and gratitude. I feel very honored to be a part of this show from the very beginning and winning the very first FTM performer award.”

“Buck has been a supporter of the show since its inception and as a pioneer in trans man erotica, as well as an educator and media personality, we’re honored to have him as a sponsor,” said Grooby Productions owner Steven Grooby. “This is third year we’ve had trans men categories and given the growth and interest in this niche, we thought it was time to include a second trans men category for Best FTM Scene. We’re looking forward to cultivating our show with this part of the community.”

Buck Angel was the first trans man recipient of the AVN Transsexual Performer of the Year award, the first recipient of the Best FTM Performer award at the Transgender Erotica Awards, and a recipient of numerous Feminist Porn awards.  An icon of popular culture, his message of empowerment through self-acceptance has struck a passionate chord with people all over the world.

Buck not only inspires people to think outside the box, he redefines gender and educates an entire generation on the fluidity of sexuality and identity politics. Since he coined the phrase “it’s not what’s between your legs that defines you!”, the term has become an anthem for men and women everywhere who have been inspired by this message of self-acceptance.

As the pioneer of an entirely new genre, Buck received international recognition for his work and continues to be a box office hit in numerous markets. The visionary filmmaker, advocate, educator, and motivational speaker launched Buck Angel Entertainment as a vehicle to produce multimedia projects including his groundbreaking mainstream documentary, “Sexing the Transman.” It appears at film festivals around the world. Fans can view his newest documentary “Mr. Angel” currently on Netflix.

In 2012, Buck was elected to the board of directors of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance and currently works to support that liberty as a human right. He has been a contributor to the Huffington Post and in 2013 was appointed as a writer for their “Gay Voices” blog. He is also currently working on his memoir.

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.”

Burbank, CA – Trans websites TS-Rockdolls, Piladyboy, and Victoria Veil, in conjunction with their parent company UP Network, announced their sponsorship of the 7th Annual Transgender Erotica Awards. The UP Network and its stars are nominated in multiple categories this year.

Owner and star of TS-Rockdolls.com Tempest said, “It’s a pleasure for myself and TS-Rockdolls once again to be both a nominee and sponsor of the TEAs and find myself among so many young dreamers battling away at the world’s old realities. As trans individuals we take our place in this world and are judged not by the questions we raise in others, but the strength and defiance that we deliver our answer. Much like the event riding forth under a new name there is a new journey to be started, a new promise to be fulfilled, a new page to be written. Be beautiful, be adventurous, be creative, be original.”

Victoria Veil, owner and star of VictoriaVeil.com, is excited to sponsor the Transgender Erotica Awards. “Erotica is about so much more than porn and sex,” said Veil. “And that’s doubly true for transgender performers who by their very nature shatter barriers in adult entertainment. It’s storytelling and delightful decadence, sexual release and kinky discovery, and I am thrilled to sponsor the only awards show for TG performers.” Veil is also known for her stunning appearances at EXXXOTICA and the LAIR at the AVN EXPO.

CEO of UP Network and owner of Piladyboy.com Ernie Black added, “We are proud to once again sponsor the Transgender Erotica Awards, to celebrate and give back in some small way to the trans community, and especially to represent the Transpinay culture of the Philippines. Indeed, we are thrilled by the nominations of two of our ladyboy models, Francine Gurchik and Vitress Tamayo. And I am personally ecstatic to be nominated as a photographer, acknowledged by my peers and in such fine company. Onward and UPward, always strive to break through the mundane to the extraordinary.”
