It's undeniable that the gay porn industry harbors "selective rage", "model selection" and "gay porn nepotism" and one of the biggest offenders is the Str8UpGayPorn Awards. I will explain.
The gay porn industry loves a good party to celebrate all of its outstanding performers, directors, and studios. But, the Str8UpGayPorn Awards isn't really a full representation of the gay porn industry as a whole.
Unfortunately, Str8UpGayPorn awards missed that mark, AGAIN. Even with delays, lack of venues (settling for the home of TigerHeat), not selling out and removing its questionable judging process. Sadly, the show remains tone-deaf.
This is the part of the post where I've listed 8 different and interesting points regarding the awards show that you weren't meant to know about.
1. Sponsorship return rate is the lowest for any gay porn awards show. A sponsor only came on board just weeks before the show. In the 11th hour, one of its rivals saved the show.
2. A Sponsor from a website that has nothing, nothing to do with the gay porn industry.
3. Blatantly, alienating half of the gay porn industry incredible talents from legends to newcomers.
4. Bizarrely, The only show confused by the terms of "Gay Porn Nominees" and "Special Appearances" as it related to the show.
5. "Special Appearances" means using one studio's entire model staff to hustle tickets while dismissing some huge named studios and performers.
The show knows that models of color should be honored, right?
6. Publicly states the best thing about their awards show is that it was captured by great cameras and not the talent- that's a disgrace.
7. One of the hosts was paid $12k $15k + expenses (approx) to attend the event.
8. Drops the "judging process" that claimed would keep the show legitimate. Sides with 'gay porn nepotism' to do the job.
Ok, enough already
Do I think changes will be made after the gay porn industry reads this post? probably not.
But, I'll make changes on what I post as it relates to the parties that harbor, promote and sponsor the event.
To half of the of the gay porn industry models, studios, and directors that weren't acknowledged for this event, not to worry, I got your back.
Half of the gay porn industry and it's fans will enjoy the CockyboysHelix Porn Awards.
Look at it this way, The models are only in town to film their Just 4 fans, so that will be hot. You will just have to watch 'red carpet' videos on loop til Easter.
