Here Are Your 2015 FlavaMen Blatino Awards Winners!
Okay, so I am jealous that I wasn't able to go to these and that I probably will never win a Blatino Award because I think the trophy is really cool. It seems like these are a lot of fun. I love men of color, I write erotica about men of color, I watch porn with men of color; everything about this event screams me. Plus I've always wanted to go to Hotlanta.
Anyway, unfortunately there's not much backstory I could find on the awards though I will be doing some posts on Flava Works and some of the winners soon.
Here's what I did find out:
The awards were started by Flava Works, a company that produces gay media which features black and Latino men in May of 2009 to honor ethnic clubs, performers and websites. This award ceremony was actually the 5th one as it doesn't look like there was a ceremony in 2013. There was some controversy and confusion between them and the Blatino Erotica Awards which began in 2007 by Blatino Oasis because of the closeness of the two names however the last ceremony for the Blatino Erotica Awards was back in 2012 and their website is dead so I don't think the confusion will last too much longer.
This year's awards were held in Atlanta during MLK Weekend. Demetria McKinney from The Real Housewives Of Atlanta performed, coincidence? I think not. HAHA. Also Grammy nominated rapper Da Brat was also there.
And now without further ado here are your 2015 FlavaMen Blatino Awards Winners!
