Trans performer Aubrey Kate took home the .XXX sponsored Best Hardcore Performer Award at the 2017 TEAs held this past weekend in Hollywood, CA. The win signifies a sweep for Kate, who also won at both XBIZ and AVN in January 2017. During her acceptance speech at the TEAs, she also thanked her new publicist, Kristel Penn, who launched Ikigai Marketing + PR earlier this year.

Los Angeles, CA - XBIZ and AVN award-winning performer Aubrey Kate won the coveted Best Hardcore Performer Award sponsored by .XXX on Sunday at the 2017 TEAs held at the Avalon in Hollywood, CA. Other projects affiliated with Kate were recognized at the event as well, including Best DVD winner ‘Real Fucking Girls’ directed by Mona Wales from Grooby and Best Scene winner ‘Phoenix Marie’s TS Threesome’  from Kink’s TS Seduction.

“I was so stressed out at the show that I couldn’t think about anything,” said Aubrey Kate. “When they announced my name for Best Hardcore Performer, I was in shock. It only started to settle in while I was on stage. I feel like I accomplished a milestone; I didn’t expect to win at all three award shows. I don’t know if there are other trans performers who have already done the same - but I know this was a big marking point for my career.”


Aubrey Kate swept at all three major adult award shows this year, picking up the XBIZ Trans Performer of the Year, AVN Trans Performer of the Year, AVN Fan Choice Trans Performer of the Year, AVN Trans Cam Performer of the Year, and now TEA Hardcore Performer of the Year. During her TEA acceptance speech, she thanked her new publicist Kristel Penn.


“Kristel’s career in the industry speaks for itself and she’s been a longtime advocate for trans performers,” Kate continued. “I’ve gone to her for advice in the past and I know she looks out for many of us performers, so I knew that signing with her was the next step I wanted to take to further my career.”  


“Aubrey and I have known each other for almost the entire duration of her career and we’ve always worked well together,” added Kristel Penn from Ikigai Marketing + PR. “Funny enough, she actually approached me a couple of months ago wanting to work together, without knowing yet that I was in the process of setting everything up for Ikigai Marketing + PR. The timing of her request was nothing short of being kismet, so it ended up being kind of perfect that she’s my first official client.”
