Photo Gallery 3: The XBIZ Noms / RISE Performer Appreciation Gala

The adult world’s brightest stars braved the cold weather (well… cold for Los Angeles, anyway) to descend upon swanky HYDE restaurant and club on Hollywood’s Sunset Blvd. The reason? To celebrate the spectacular defeat of Prop 60, learn the key nominations for the 2017 XBIZ awards, and take part in XBIZ’s annual RISE Performer Appreciation Gala. Mayhem ensued.
