The GayVN Awards have been made to change their categories after being accused of racism. The awards, which celebrate gay adult entertainment, have been brought back by AVN after having been supported by it for 7 years because the category name “Best Ethnic Scene.” is considered inappropriate. “The gay porn industry has always been a place of veiled racism and bigotry,” gay porn star Hugh Hunter, insisting that the problem should be overcome, not grown to the awards level, where, as he pointed, men of color has never been awarded or at least nominated for the best actors. “Why? Why were these scenes not just included in the best scene category?” he said, “Why would this category be created in 2017 when the political climate is so thick with racial divide in this country?” He declined his nominations, and called on performers, producers and fans of the gay porn industry to boycott the award and to tackle racism in gay porn industry.
