These awards honor gay ethnic porn stars, ethnic clubs and websites in a variety of categories and will be administered by Flava Works.
“This year we’ve expanded the award show, adding more categories, hosting at a larger venue and bringing in another celebrity host,” says Warren Bullock, operations manager of Flava Works. “Last year was our first show, so we learned a lot and this year we plan to upgrade and make it even bigger and better.”
Some of the new categories added include: best personals website, best non-porn blog, best exotic dancer, best sex siren and others.
Also, the celebrity to host the awards will be chosen by the voters at BlatinoAwards.com and they range from Ciara to Nicki Minaj.
Nominations close May 31, while the voting process will last June 15 until August 15. The Blatino Awards will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, during Atlanta Gay Black Pride on September 4.
Nominations can be made here.
