Grabby Awards: The Outside Scoop

Posted May 27, 2005 11:32 AM by with 5 comments

Gay porn awards are, themselves, a rather dubious distinction. Imagine how many guffaws I get when you I tell people I’ve won a GayVN for Best Screenplay. Not to mention trying to tell them you’re nominated for a Grabby. Pornographers can’t get no respect. bretwolfe.jpgThis Memorial Day, Chicago hosts The Grabbys (the gay porn award handed out by Gay Chicago Magazine) and IML (International Mr. Leather). I can’t remember which one I’m here for, but the stars are out in full harness.

Not to be all Jizz Smith, but I just returned from Bret Wolfe’s 30th Birthday (t’was Wet Palms themed, natch) where I saw bearded Bret with original Wet Palms veteran Brad “Barbie” Benton, as well as a few new additions including a besot Bobby Williams (“Don’t Say A WORD about Bad Boys Pool Party!”) and a lovingly vampiric Pete Ross.

The kids gathered round an issue of Gay Chicago magazine fighting over who had the most pictures. Frederick Ford begged for a casting couch while Troy Punk canoodled with a handsome new beau, nearly upsetting the Swedish-meatballs-and-birthday-cake spread on the pool
table. True Glamour!

Tomorrow the leather-and-lays weekend kicks into full gear with more parties, more porn stars and more bad gossip.

    Can’t wait to hear more about this. And pictures? One day I’ll be there at IML. But, got to get the bod in shape first in order to sample the flown-in delicacies.

    What the hell does “lovingly vampiric” mean?

    He kept trying to bite my neck. But in a nice way.
