Buck Angel first made a name for himself as a pioneer in the adult entertainment industry. He became the first Female-to-Male (FTM) transsexual to appear in the
adult world, creating both a strong online presence and even winning a coveted AVN award for Transsexual Performer of the Year for his work in video.
As his notoriety grew he became an icon of popular culture carrying a universal message of empowerment through self-acceptance and being sexually comfortable in your own skin. He carries this message in his adult work and also to mainstream audiences across the globe as an educator, advocate, and motivational speaker. Buck is not only inspiring people to think outside the box, he is re-defining gender and educating an entire generation on the fluidity of sexuality and identity politics. He has appeared in every type of media from magazines to television, and everywhere from the Tyra Banks and Howard Stern shows, to IdeaCity and at Yale University.
Also a visionary filmmaker, he launched Buck Angel Entertainment as a vehicle to produce multi-media projects that run a broad spectrum. His groundbreaking mainstream documentary about FTM sexuality is enlightening audiences at film festivals from Copenhagen and London to Tel-Aviv and Melbourne. The truly unique graphic adult version manages to be both titillating and educational. Buck Angel has worked diligently for sexual rights and freedoms for everyone, and his ongoing efforts mesh perfectly with the mission of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance.
