4. DVD: Mr. Angel
As a transgender porn star, Buck Angel has made a name for himself in the world of adult entertainment as “the man with the pussy.” This distinction has led Angel, who has undergone hormone replacement therapy but not genital surgery, to be interviewed by prominent talk show hosts like Maury Povich, Howard Stern, and Tyra Banks, with whom he shares his unique and oft-controversial voice as a trans advocate (“I love my vagina,” he famously told Banks). In the documentary Mr. Angel, which was filmed over the course of six years, director Dan Hunt probes deeper within the story of Buck Angel, revealing his past as troubled youth struggling with gender identity, and his rise to become a pioneer in the porn industry and beyond. On December 3, Mr. Angel was released on DVD. Watch the trailer below. — Daniel Reynolds
