Buck Angel is the industry's first female-to-male transsexual porn star. Referred to as "the man with a pussy," Buck has pioneered a new adult industry genre, FTM Porn. He started his career as a tomboy resigned to spend the rest of his life in a female body. Although he was a very successful professional model, Buck was very unhappy and often dulled his feelings through drugs and alcohol. That all changed when he saw a film featuring a female-to-male transsexual character. Buck was renewed with hope and quickly began to inquire about the steps to becoming a man. Today Buck is a wildly popular performer who has worked with men, women, gay, straight, fetish, bisexual and other transsexual talent. In 2005 he became the first FTM to be featured in an all-male film, Cirque Noir, produced by Titan Men. Buck is now the owner of his own studio, Buck Angel Entertainment in which he does double duty as director and star. In January of 2007 Buck won Transsexual Performer of the Year at the AVN Awards, making him the first female-to-male performer to do so.
