As announced yesterday, the first annual Str8UpGayPorn Awards will be held on June 22nd, 2017 in New York City, and will be hosted by comedienne, actress, singer, author, and iconic personality Sandra Bernhard. All of the Str8UpGayPorn Award nominations—as well as venue and ticket info—will be announced here on April 11th.
Today, I can reveal all 18 categories that will be honored and presented at the Str8UpGayPorn Awards, which should give you a clue as to what kind of show this will be (i.e., like none you’ve ever seen) and what kind of nominees to expect.
The eligibility period for the Str8UpGayPorn Awards is March 1st, 2016 through February 28th, 2017. Note that, with the exception of “Best Performer,” “Best Studio,” and “Viewers Choice,” each category will contain five nominees only. With a mix of traditional and not-so-traditional categories, here they are:
Outstanding Achievement In Sexual Performances By A Gay Adult Entertainer

As seen above, two “Viewers Choice” categories will award winners based entirely on fan votes. Every other winner will be determined by a panel of judges, who’ll be announced here in the coming weeks. And, one gay porn fan will have a chance to win a seat on that judging panel. Details on the “fan judge” contest will be released next week.
