AVN Media Network Announces the 2018 GayVN Awards Nominees

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—It’s been seven years since the last GayVN Awards Show, which took place in San Francisco in 2010. But just like riding a bicycle, it felt perfectly natural to pick up where we left off, and jump enthusiastically back into the challenge of reviewing a year’s worth of gay adult entertainment. And now that the task is done, just in time for the Thanksgiving weekend, it’s time to reveal the nominees.

Below is the list of nominees in 28 categories, split between 15 categories that will be voted on by a group of judges with expertise in the industry and 13 categories that will voted on by the fans.

Gay porn’s answer to the AVN Awards, the GayVN Awards salute excellence in gay adult entertainment. Winners will be announced at the 2018 GayVN Awards Show, taking place Sunday, January 21 at Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. The event is sponsored by CAM4.com and iWantEmpire.com.

“We couldn’t be happier about the industry reponse,” said CEO Tony Rios. “Companies participated by submitting prenominations, and we’ve heard nothing but excitement about the return of the awards show. We’re happy to have CAM4 and iWantEmpire as sponsors, and we’re looking forward to many companies traveling to Las Vegas to attend the show, which runs during the Internext Expo.”

Voting on the GayVN Fan Awards will begin next Thursday, Nov. 30.
