Your bravery and story have allured me for a long time. I would feel the same way you felt talking to that group of academics if we ever have the chance to meet and I hope that some day we do. This was a great article. I didn't know you were doing live shows in Europe, I'll have to see if I can catch one sometime.

Buck, have followed your career for several years now. we have chatted (you wouldn't remember, lol.). I think peeps are so violently opposed to your person and performance because it threatens their very fragile sexual self-image. Their world is divided into only black and white, male and female with strictly delineated roles and no deviations allowable.

well, FUCK THAT, i say. And YOU are sayin "fuck that" everytime you mount a stage (or a dick or pussy, for that matter. lol). Keep doin what you're doin. you are a hero to all those whose sexuality doesn't fit in a box (no pun intended).

I drool, and pre-cum, whenever I see your manpussy, dude. If you're EVER in Philly, gimme a heads up. I'd like to catch your show if you ever decide to do one in USA.

Peace and stay safe, dude.

Buck, you are a special, wonderful human being. I would not care if you were male, female, or a little green thing from Alpha Centauri, I would still love you. In all honesty I don't watch porn of any kind that much, the connection I feel to you is simply as one human being to another and I so admire your courage to speak out. I'm a straight woman, which should seem like a simple thing, but it isn't. I grew up with a lot of hang ups about sex and some incidences of abuse at a very young age. I also live with mental illness and am actually learning to LIVE with it after years of not knowing what is wrong with me. Understanding yourself is so important. This above all is what you help people do. THANK YOU!

I'm a pre-surgery transman, and though I've only been "out" for a couple years, I can relate to the hate and harshness that mainstream society can be. There has been times when it brings me down, but then I realize a lot of people hate, or fear what they don't understand. A blind eye can lead to ignorance and intolerance. They simply hate what they view as "not the norm". Which applies to a lot of things in life really. Reading your articles and stories helps me realize that I am not alone in my journey and has given me even more positive influences to work upon leading to my ultimate goal to become who I truly am. Thank you Buck!

Interviews with Buck Angel

  • Who is Buck Angel? So far, we’ve heard transman, adult film-maker, educator, speaker, and advocate – let’s learn more about Buck’s life and his experiences. What has the journey been like for the first FTM transsexual porn star? Buck calls himself “The Man With A Pussy” – how do people react to him being so forthright?

    When Buck Angel first started doing adult films and photo shoots, he had no idea where it might take him. In the beginning, Buck was surprised by how many people seemed to feel threatened by him. But as time went on, he saw just how much he affected and inspired people; whether with sexuality, gender, self-acceptance, or just everyday life. Buck was the first FTM to be signed to a major adult film studio before he started his own entertainment company; he has since been nominated for, and has won many, awards including both AVN and XBiz Transsexual Performer of the Year and the Feminist Porn Awards over the last few years. Buck is currently working on his first feature documentary about sexuality and transmen, which is a whole new field for him. He has been reaching out to transmen and their partners internationally. We have to wonder, what are some of the challenges he’s personally faced as a man who continues to make big changes worldwide about how people see gender? Buck spoke at Sex Week at Yale University this year. He was also recently immortalized with a golden life-sized sculpture by artist Marc Quinn, which was shown in NYC at the Armory show, and is now opening in London in May, and will continue to show around the world. He travels quite a bit; he just got back from Amsterdam last week and is off to Finland next week. Buck told us that his mission is to help make the world a better place and to teach tolerance and love – we’re happy to have him here and are looking forward to learning more!
