Welcome to the
elcome to the 4th Annual Tranny Awards and our largest event to date. The Tranny Awards is to celebrate and honour the transgender models, producers, companies and others working in our field of erotica.
AEBN will be sponsoring the $1000 prizes attached to The Best New Face and the The Best Hardcore Model respectively, with Third World Media introducing our inaugural Best Non-Typical Model category and prize. UP-Network is the trophy sponsor for the Best Free Site and Best Non-TS Performer.
This year we’ve been honoured to have a number of sponsors participate from within our specific industry, as well more mainstream adult companies who feature transsexuals in their products. Shemale Strokers returns to present their highly coveted “Model of the Year” while we welcome new sponsor, Kink whose award “... for the Kinkiest Tgirl Domme” from their site TS Seduction, will be highly contested. Live video cam powerhouse, Cam4 adopted the Best Solo Model category which is our only “readers choice” award and has a $1000 prize attached while industry veterans, Eros.com and video on demand company
We continue this year with our Lifetime Achievement Award and you can read more about this and the sponsor, Joanna Jet further in the program. This year we introduced a “Solo Model Sponsorship” and I’d like to extend a big thank you to these sponsors, who may be independent or attached to larger companies but wanted to lend their support to an event that they believe in. Mia Isabella, Sammi Valentine, Mariana Cordoba, Krissy 4 U, Jasmine’s TS Fantasy and TSRockdolls should all receive a round of applause (virtual or real) for their participation. I urge you all to take a look at

all these sponsors, all of whom operate companies which excel within their own niches and without whom, this event would not be possible. Although it is now February 2012, these awards are to celebrate productions during 2011 and our six judges (more on them later) have been diligent in choosing what they feel are the best choices. I’ve been privy to the results coming in and this is the closest event we’ve had in almost all categories than previous years. I think this lends itself to being a very exciting show. Whoever takes the final prize tonight, to simply make it to the nomination round is a reward in itself. The nominations were taken from models and producers in the industry and most importantly the fans, so to make it onto the ballot means you are reaching your audience. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped make tonight happen, from the Grooby office staﬀ, to the
GROOBY PRODUCTIONS many models who should be coming, media outlets, sponsors and everybody who has worked so hard to bring the event together but mainly, I’d like to say thank you to the fans. The fans are who support our business day after day, week after week, and we all aim to provide them with the best service. This is a show to honour the transgender models, performers, and producers ... but it’s also to honour and thank the fans. Have a fantastic 2012,

Lifetime Award Puts Producers Forefront By Steven Grooby
This is the one award which, to date, is not judged or voted on. It's a decision I make through talking to other people in the industry, through online forums, and social media with fans and based on my 16+ years running transsexual erotica websites. Previous recipients of this award include Meghan Chevalier and Olivia Love who have
Having been nominated in virtually every single category in every major award event, I felt it was time to put something back and as the winner of the lifetime achievement award at last year’s Tranny Awards, I decided to sponsor and with this, have the opportunity to acknowledge those that have made a signiﬁcant contribution to an industry that I love” -Joanna Jet
more scenes under their belts between them, possibly than all of this year’s nominees collectively. Last year producer/model
The Godfather of this industry. The maestro of TS porn. It’s all been written about him already, we’re late to the party. He’s who every transsexual video maker attains to be and many of us were jerking oﬀ to his porn, well before we ever worked in the industry. Joey Silvera started his career in the 70’s as a performer and four decades later, he’s still producing better content than
any of his contemporaries and winning more awards. It’s pointless listing his accolades as we don’t have enough space but when he made his first transsexual release in Brazil, a new chapter was written for our industry. With an “in your face” approach, Joey introduced the hottest transsexual models from Brazil before most of us had seen any. He quickly moved onto US TS models, introducing his “muse” Vaniity in 2000’s Rogue Adventures 4 and has since worked with practically every quality TS performer who has worked over the last decade. If a TS performer makes a Joey Silvera DVD she can consider herself as ranking with the very best. I consider Joey to be an inspiration, a colleague, a master of his craft, and a friend. Above all, he’s what every producer should aspire to be. The respect the models have to understand Joey’s vision on camera says more about him than any words I can say.
Joanna Jet received the award for not only her productions and scenes, but for her tireless lobbying for better recognition from the mainstream industry. Tony Vee, who has been shooting for Shemale Yum and Black Tgirls since 1997 and continues to discover new talent by the week, received our
producer award. Brazen Devil is the production studio run by transsexual pornstar & producer Joanna Jet. For over a decade, Joanna has been delivering top quality transsexual content from both in front and from behind the camera from both sides of the Atlantic ocean.
Vaniity probably one of models who has introduced a generation of curiosity seekers to transsexuals. Vaniity first appeared in 1998’s Transsexual Prostitutes 6, but it was in her teaming up with maestro, Joey Silvera, as the first American transsexual in his seminal Rogue Adventures series, in 2000 that a star was born. Vaniity has appeared in many of the Rogue Adventures series including the latest (and nominated) Rogue Adventures 37. She was the first winner of the AVN Transsexual Performer of the Year in 2004. Possibly the most recognizable face of TS erotica over the past decade or longer and
Vaniity has appeared on many sites including ShemalePornstar.com, EvilAngel. com and has her own site, ClubVaniity.net.
CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH RECIPIENTS OF THE AWARDS AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO MUCH MORE WORK FROM THEM IN THE COMING YEARS.
