LAS VEGAS—On a lucky Friday the 13th, Chi Chi LaRue provided the soundtrack and a bevy of buff athletes and porn stars served up the eye candy at the GayVN Party, the opening night event at [email protected], a separate track within the Internext Expo for gay adult businesses. The expo continues through January 17.
And there were more than just Internext attendees at the party: AVN teamed up with the Sin City Shootout—the largest annual LGBT sporting event in the world—for an official welcome party to serve both contingents. And that led to a packed house at Vanity nightclub at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
More than 900 athletes came through the doors at club for the big bash, which was sponsored by AEBN, CockyBoys, FabScout Entertainment, Falcon Studios, Fleshjack, Helix Studios and Men.com. Among the adult stars on the red carpet were Brent Corrigan, J.J. Knight, and the entire CockyBoys crew: Carter Dane, Levi Karter, Liam Riley, Ricky Roman and R.J. Sebastian. Other industry luminaries were there, including Tim Valenti of Falcon Studios Group, Gary Jackson of CCBill, Matt Gleason of AEBN, and drag star Sister Roma.
The following night brought more bacchanalia with the Hustlaball. The famed gay circuit event has happened during Internext for the past couple of years but 2017 marks the first time Hustlaball has taken place at the same venue. Hot men in fetish gear lined up for the raucous bash, which unfolded at Hard Rock’s Vinyl nightclub.
Hustlaball also generated plenty of star power, including Dominic Pacifico serving as the DJ, with Trenton Ducati, Taylor Reign, Armond Rizzo, Dirk Caber, Jesse Jackman and Brian Bonds among those on the red carpet. LaRue and Sister Roma also attended Hustlaball, joined by other members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The event was sponsored by Falcon Studios Group, Flirt4Free, Supermen.com and Mr. Man. The event was live streamed for Supermen.com members. “There were even more people watching online than there were at the club,” said Douglas Richter of Supermen.
