It was an Elegant Red Carpet at the Xbix Rise Party
LOS ANGELES From Xbix.com— Hundreds of the best and brightest in adult entertainment stormed DTLA Wednesday, Nov. 14 for the glamorous RISE Adult Talent Appreciation Gala.
The annual red-carpet event, which honors and gives thanks to the adult talent community, set the stage for the XBIZ Show and XBIZ Awards in January. Following the success of last year’s jam-packed event, this year's gala moved to a larger venue, hotspot Exchange LA in Downtown Los Angeles.
A red carpet fuselage of flashbulbs greeted attendees. A table groaning with cupcakes from FanCentro offered a tasty diversion as performers, clip artists, cam models, agents and production heads moved into the main ballroom where DJ Darcie Dolce spun hip-hop beats that reverberated from corner to corner.
As a multicolored laser show flashed overhead, partygoers pressed the flesh, networking and flirting. Giant screens flashed the names of platinum sponsors FanCentro and Pimp.xxx, gold sponsors Wicked Pictures, Gamma Films and Smash Pictures, and silver sponsors Adam & Eve and ATMLA.
Small Hands and Della Dane posed for selfies in one corner while Abigail Mac greeted friends and fans in another. Honey Gold and Natasha Nice held court by the bar, while Angela White introduced herself to table greeters individually and Sofie Ryan snuggled with Justin Hunt. Nathan Bronson, Markus Dupree, Seth Gamble, Ricky Johnson, Derrick Pierce, Rob Piper and Chad White circled the room, chatting and laughing, while Mark Spiegler was encircled by talent at one table and event sponsor ATMLA wrangled a starry group at another.
Dolce’s DJ set segued into a live performance by camming couple TrueStori3z that culminated with a wave of talent ascending to the stage during their final number to share in the glittering spotlight. Soon, DJ Carter Cruise took over the spinning with a series of Top-40 remixes that kept the energy flowing.
Jessica Drake, last year's XBIZ Awards host, mixed-and-mingled with Romi Rain, Riley Reid, Charlotte Stokely, Kleio Valentien, Tana Lea, Alina Lopez, Leigh Raven, Briana Banks, Jasmine Jae, Jill Kassidy, Casey Calvert, Ana Foxxx, Kenzie Taylor and Riley Nixon, among many others.
The XBIZ Awards honors the best in the business of sex and will be hosted by the most famous adult star in history, Stormy Daniels. A star-studded affair that attracts the industry elite, the XBIZ Awards show recognizes outstanding achievements in the fields of movie production, technology, pleasure products and retail.
The XBIZ Awards will coincide with XBIZ 2019, the biggest industry-wide trade show of the year, which annually unites over 1,500 players from international markets to promote business opportunities and examine industry trends.
