Personal life

According to his website, Angel was a pronounced tomboy as a child and adolescent. Unaware of the existence of treatments for gender dysphoria such as hormone replacement therapy, he lived for years as a female, dulling his gender dysphoria with drugs and alcohol. Though he was profitably employed as a professional model, he has stated that he was generally dissatisfied with his identity and existence "was not loving life".[4]

Adult film career

Finding that there weren't any FTM actors like himself in the market, he started a website and his career skyrocketed. Angel began to produce and star in his own line of adult films (Buck Angel Entertainment). As he has not had any genital surgery and still possesses female genitalia, he was able to create a unique niche, proudly calling himself "The Man With a Pussy."

In 2005, he also became the first FTM to be featured in an all-male porn film produced by an exclusively gay porn company. This was the Titan release Cirque Noir.[5] [6]

In January 2007, Angel won Transsexual Performer of the Year at the AVN Awards,[7] He was nominated for 2008, 2009, and 2010 Transsexual Performer of the Year. He remains the only FTM transsexual to ever have been nominated for the award.

In April 2008 he was presented with a "Feminist Porn Award" for "Boundary Breaker of the Year" Feminist Porn Awards

In September 2008 he flew to London, where British artist Marc Quinn began a life-size sculpture of Buck Angel, to be included in the sculptor's upcoming global tour. Marc Quinn article

In October 2008 Angel appeared in director Ed Powers' new book NAKED about the adult film industry. He filmed a sex scene with porn star Wolf Hudson for an accompanying documentary film NAKED, produced by mainstream photographer Justin Lubin.[8]
