I wish I'd gone! (I wish someone who went would post > about them...)Hey all,
I went and they were really rather uneventful. One of the first hosts mentioned to everybody that the LA Vice Squad was in the audience so we all had to be on our best behavior. Later in the show a fax from the Vice was read stating a list of rules the promoters had to follow. Like the video clips had to be censored, no uncovered genitalia, no lewd conduct... etc. They sure know how to ruin a party. Anyway,...
The Gay Video Guide Gay Erotic Video Awards were held Mon., Dec. 2 at the Hollywood Palladium. The big winner of the event was All Worlds Video. They took home eight awards mostly focusing around their videos "Our Trespasses" and "Flesh & Blood" (best video of the year).
For the first time ever, the Best Newcomer also won the Best Actor award, handsome Kurt Young. He also took the award for Best Erotic Scene for his role in Trade Winds opposite Derek Cameron (and what a scene it was!!)
Young's first appearance on the stage was kind of unprofessional. He blurted out something about how people were being treated or something like that. Come to find out, he was scheduled to do an on stage number with boyfriend David Thompson and was cut at the last minute by show director Gender for time considerations. I'm sure most of those in attendance were thinking this performer had a beef against the entire industry. He did apologize for his actions while on stage to graciously accept his third award for the evening.
Matt Gunther, in high spirits, rolled on-stage in his wheel chair as one of the presenters. Other presenters included Steve O'Donnell, Dino Phillips, Will Clark, Grant Wood, Jordan Young, Chad Donovan, Paul Baressi, Hawk McAllistar, Bo Summers, Matt Easton (who flashed his pretty butt because he didn't win Best Bottom) and many other hot porn stars.
This year, the proceeds of the show will go to benefit Being Alive/Los Angeles, Continuum HIV Day Services in San Francisco and Special Delivery in San Diego. I just talked to Sabin, the shows producer, and he said the auction items alone raised almost $5000.
The hosts included Chi Chi LaRue, Jake Andrews, director Jim Steel, Johnny Hanson (who I might add is even more handsome in person), Sharon Kane and Drew Andrews.
The show was dedicated to the late Christian Fox and Jon King, and industry people Ben Barker, Brad Braverman, photographer Derek Powers and actor Brandon Wilde.
