Mr. Angel

A Documentary by Dan Hunt

“Mr. Angel” made the Austin Indie Film Examiner’s Top 10 list!

Below is taken from the film’s website;

Shot over six years, Mr. Angel chronicles the extraordinary life of transgender advocate, educator and porn pioneer, Buck Angel. His in-your-face style of activism has audiences outraged by his insistence that he is ‘a man who simply has a vagina.’

Buck has survived addiction, homelessness, suicide and relentless opposition to his gender expression. Still, he lives his truth without compromise or apology.

This feature length documentary explores Buck’s moving story to understand the complexities of someone who overcame incredible obstacles, then shamelessly sought the spotlight and its backlash, to share his message of empowerment. This is an inspirational story of rare perseverance and an unlikely hero.

About Buck

Buck was born a biological female. From as early as he can remember, he knew he was male on the inside. Even his parents and siblings treated him like he was a boy until he reached puberty. That’s when the conflict began, which escalated to extreme drug and alcohol addiction and multiple suicide attempts.

In the midst of this volatile period, he became an internationally renowned female model, a lifestyle that only added to his drug use and unresolved gender identity.

In 2003, Buck Angel made history as the Adult Industry’s first female-to-male Porn Star and Adult-film producer. Since then, his career has evolved into education and mainstream media.

He is married to Elayne Angel, professional body piercer and author of ‘The Piercing Bible’.

“Mr. Angel” – Perhaps the film that surprised me the most during the whole fest was ‘Mr. Angel,’ a provocative documentary based on the life of transsexual porn star Buck Angel. A rarity in the porn world, Buck is a porn star who looks like a man yet has female genitalia. Born a girl and now featuring almost every physical characteristic of a man, Buck is a charismatic and electrifying figure as this doc shows. While following Buck as he works on the porn circuit, ‘Mr. Angel’ focuses more on his struggle to be accepted by the public and his family for who he is rather than focusing on his sexual exploits. It’s this documentation of his work for acceptance and his personal and family hardships that makes this film powerful and a must see for LGBTQ advocates everywhere.
