GayVN Winners 2004
Below are the winners of the GayVN Awards 2004 as compiled by Butch Harris of ManNet.com. Yes, I was at the awards show, but with an open bar and all those porn stars running around, I couldn’t keep track of the winners myself, so I am reprinting it from Butchie-boy’s site.
I was a judge of the awards for the third year in a row. Of the categories I voted, my choices were 48% correct. A good selection of the movies are also available at NakedSword.com, and there are some free video clips of some winners coming soon.
Earlier last week, Chi Chi LaRue had been in the hospital with a mild heart attack. She was released just in time to fulfill her duties as MC, although without wig, heels or corset. Being an industry-only event, it was not a shock to see her as “Larry”, but we were grateful for her presence. She’s a gem!
I have some great pictures from the show, which I hope to post by tommorrow.

Prior to host Chi Chi LaRue taking the stage, a filmed welcome was shown on the club’s big screens in which one of the famous drag queen’s nipples was exposed, in a parody of the Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction,” to the great delight of the crowd.
