The Str8UpGayPorn Awards Are Coming!

Award-winning blog Str8UpGayPorn has made it official that it will be holding the 1st annual Str8UpGayPorn Awards LIVE on Thursday June 22 in New York City! AND, actress/comedienne/singer and pop culture icon Sandra Bernhard will be hosting the awards, described in the press release as the unofficial kick off event for New York’s Gay Pride Weekend. Str8UpGayPorn‘s Zach Sire announced on his blog that the event is sponsored by Pornhub,  the “premier online destination for adult entertainment” and while the venue hasn’t been set yet, the 1st annual Str8UpGayPorn Awards will be streamed live at Str8UpGayPornIn addition to Sandra Bernhard the awards will include special guests, adult performers, and fans.

According to the blog, the 1st annual Str8UpGayPorn Awards will be comprised of 17 categories and winners will be determined by what Zach describes as “a carefully selected group of esteemed judges from the world of gay media and gay adult—and even the fans themselves.” As expected there will be awards for Best Performer, Best Feature, Best Studio, etc but also some “unique categories that only Str8UpGayPorn could concoct.” If you’re familiar with Zach’s STR8tie  awards that he “presented” on his blog for a few years you know that these categories will indeed be unique. As an example Zach sneaked one category: BEST GAY PORN NEWSMAKER “Outstanding Achievement in Controversial, Shocking, AND Headline-Making News” Ad apparently there will be only 5 nominations per category. You’ll have to wait though because the complete list of nominations won’t be announced until April 11th, when the venue is announced and tickets are made available.

You’ll find more details and comments about the Str8UpGayPorn Awards at Str8UpGayPorn. And when the nominations are announced we’ll cover them here again. Ever since the demise of the GAYVN Awards we’ve been hoping that another major US-based event would fill that gap and we hope that these Str8UpGayPorn Awards do just that…but at the same time create a new tradition. Stay tuned…

    So glad to see 61 year old Bernhard out and about without all the problems.

    Oh, how exciting. I wonder who the nominees will be? Corbin Fisher, Sean Cody, Bel Ami, Gay Hoopla, and Guys In Sweatpants? I can’t wait.
