In the meantime, why not take a look at our nominees from last year.


Sept 15 – Oct 15 Pre-nominations: During the pre-nomination period, fans and industry people will be able to nominate their favorite performers in each category. A page will be available on this website where you can vote, so performers are encouraged to share the voting link with fans.

Oct 26 – Nominees announced: After tallying up the pre-nomination votes, we will announce the official nominees in each category on this website. We do not select the nominees ourselves and merely count the votes submitted by fans and people in the industry.

Nov 10 – Nominees material received: Nominees have until this date to submit their materials to the Grooby office to be considered. DVDs can be mailed to the office directly. Free passes for memberships sites (for our judges) can be emailed to We will do our best to reach out to every nominee to remind them to send their materials, but in the event that we do not have your contact information on file, please email to make arrangements. We want to make sure our judges can review your work!

Dec 10 – Judging completed: Judging the TEAs is no easy task. Our judges are given a month to review all the material submitted to us by the due date. With over 20 categories, it does take time to go through everything and we want to make sure our judges are able to spend time reviewing everything properly.

Feb 15 – Transgender Erotica Awards: The day has arrived! Join us at the Avalon in Hollywood for the 7th Annual Transgender Erotica Awards. Come early for cocktails and to walk our red carpet area. We’ll have live entertainment and will be announcing the winners!

Feb 16 – TEA Official After Party:  It’s time to unwind and celebrate!  Our official after party will be held on Monday night at the Bardot (the connecting property to the Avalon). This is a great time to mingle with your favorite TS stars and industry guests. The drinks will be flowing, the music will be pumping, and everyone will be celebrating the evening.
