WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Gay escort site Rentboy.com has announced that the 2nd Annual International Escort Awards — aka “The Hookies” — will be held at Rage Nightclub on Saturday, March 22.

“The International Escort Awards is Rentboy.com’s way of recognizing, applauding and showing respect to thousands of escorts, porn stars and masseurs who put their effort, courage and skill into this underappreciated industry every day," Rentboy representative Sean Van Sant said.

The ceremony will feature comedian Jonny McGovern of Logo TV's “The Big Gay Sketch Show” as the emcee and ringleader of the evening's festivities with special celebrity appearances by director Chi Chi LaRue and interior designer Bobby Trendy.

Nominees scheduled to attend include Barrett Long, Dean Coxx, Jonathan Lowe, Kyle Foxxx, Jason Carter, Tristan Mathews, Arpad Miklos, London Boy Pete, Lucas, Tristan Waters and others.

Late last year, Rentboy.com visitors voted for their favorite escort listings to make up the finalists in 11 categories including Best International Escort, Most Versatile Escort, Best Rentboy Ad, Biggest Dick, Best Porn Star Escort and more.

Viewers and web surfers choose the winners by logging onto Rentboy.com/awards and casting their vote.

"Escorts and body workers are frequently stigmatized in the press,” Van Sant said. “Yet these courageous and skilled men provide an invaluable service, helping clients make meaningful physical contact, explore their fantasies, emotional needs and desire for companionship. This is a night that celebrates that unique profession, one of the oldest professions, as presented by the newest media.”

Admission to “The Hookies” is free.

Rage Nightclub is located at 8911 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the awards show begins at 7:30 p.m. Limited VIP table seating is available for purchase at BuyTix.net.

Trendy will be hosting an invite-only afterparty at his shop, Bobby Trendy Designs, following the conclusion of the ceremony.

“The Hookies” are sponsored by GayHotMovies.com and are presented with partners FabScout Entertainment , Just Us Boys , Odyssey Magazine and HX Magazine.

VillageTV.com will film the awards show, and viewers can watch the evening's highlights online.
