Grooby Announces Nominees For 2018 TEA Show

LOS ANGELES—The TEAs (also known as the Transgender Erotica Awards) have announced their 2018 nominees.

“It's that time of the year again. The Grooby staff have worked diligently to get all the pre-nominations organized and come up with a final list for each category and that's never an easy task,” said Steven Grooby. “We do understand the gravity of what being nominated (or not) does mean to some people so it's not taken lightly. Some of the categories this year are incredibly competitive with not one clear model standing out, and I think the panel of judges are going to have an equally difficult time.”  

The 2018 TEAs have posted nominees in over 15 categories at their official website, Additional categories such as the Fan Choice Award, Transcendence Award, Lifetime Achievement Awards, Best Industry Professional, Grooby Girl of the Year, Stroker of the Year, Bob’s TGirls Model of the Year, and Kink’s Kinkiest T-Girl Domme will be announced at the awards show in March.

“Thank you to everyone who helped get this list together—and if you didn't make the categories you wanted, please remember, the TEAs are much more than an award show; they're the one time a year that everyone in our industry can come together and celebrate, support, and honor each other," Grooby added. "So I hope to see you all in March.”

The 2018 sponsorship packages are now posted on the website here.
