LOS ANGELES — "Sexually fluid leading man" Dante Colle is celebrating his win as the first-ever, all-inclusive XBIZ Awards "Performer of the Year."
Recipients of the 2021 XBIZ Awards, presented by MyFreeCams, were revealed Thursday, January 14 during a live broadcast on XBIZ.tv.
The new category goes "beyond gender and sexual orientation," a rep explained. "'Performer of the Year' had no nominees and was decided on by XBIZ and industry peers. On Thursday night, Dante was the first crowned winner of the night’s most significant honor."
"Taken by total surprise, Dante was on hand to virtually accept his award," continued the rep, "and he thanked both Ricky Greenwood and Kayden Kross for putting him in starring roles in their productions, pushing his career forward, and giving him a chance."
Colle noted he was "really caught off-guard."
"I had no idea that was even a category until they announced my name," he said. "So you can imagine my excitement. This is definitely a great start to 2021, and I’m sure this year will be even better career-wise. I’m honored that XBIZ and my colleagues think so highly of me and that I deserved to win this award."
