BURBANK, Calif.—The Tranny Awards, an awards show dedicated exclusively to the celebration of the transsexual adult industry, is announcing four new sponsors for the event, which takes place in February 2013.
The four new sponsors are all successful TS performers who own and operate their own solo websites. Jamie French, Jordan Jay, Wendy Summers, and Nicole Montero of Latina Tranny have all taken sponsorships, which will give them exposure online and during the show.
But it's more than just the promotional aspect that had these models ready to sponsor.
TS performer Wendy Summers, who runs her own website through the Grooby Network, was first to commit. She said, "The success of WendySummers.com is 100 percent due to the amazing support which fans have shown for my funny, geeky and freaky style of porn. Sponsoring the Tranny Awards is my way of giving something back to the fans. I'm proud to be a part of this unique event where fans and stars can come together and really get to know each other."
Latina Tranny owner/producer Nicole Montero is equally excited about the opportunity. She commented, "This year has been incredible for me, so I thought why not give it a shot and sponsor this mega event? I want Latina Tranny to be everywhere on the internet!"
Grooby CEO Steven Grooby said, "Last year was the first time we asked solo models to get involved, and it's great to see that girls are getting onboard with this. Wendy, Nicole, Jordan and Jamie clearly have goals that we can help achieve through their branding with this show.”
He added, “We do have a number of other models interested but we're open to any transgender model who wishes to get involved. This show is going to have a lot of exposure and with all the main companies producing TS material committed, it's going to be a huge show."
To properly accommodate industry guests and fans alike, Grooby has moved the Tranny Awards to a larger venue. The Beyond the Stars Palace was built in 1939 as the famous Roxy Theater and has since been remodeled, while still preserving its art-deco architectural style.
