Open Your Mind (and Your Zipper) to 6 of Our Favorite Trans Gay Porn Stars

This post is also available in: Español Português Français Русский ไทย 繁體中文

Today, the gay porn company Naked Sword announced the upcoming release of The Devil’s Deal & Other Sordid Tales (link NSFW), the studio’s first-ever film to feature a trans man, Viktor Belmont. This is a big deal.

Although gay trans male porn performer Buck Angel appeared in TitanMen’s film Cirque Noir in 2005, trans men have mostly been ghettoized into hard-to-find, online, niche studios like Bonus Hole Boys and Jockpussy, or available in low-quality DIY videos of numerous porn tube sites. However, Naked Sword is far more mainstream and in a position to influence the rest of the porn industry, if Belmont appears in future productions.

Naked Sword has already established themselves as an online clearinghouse for videos from over 213 mainstream and smaller-name gay porn studios. Naked Sword’s 63 original productions feature hundreds of big-name porn stars, and Belmont’s performance could encourage other stars to perform with trans men as well.

Of the scene, Harlan Yaffe, editor-in-chief of the gay porn news and video site The Sword (link NSFW) wrote, “Viktor Belmont was cast because first and foremost, he’s a hot man. The fact that’s he not cisgendered should be no different than the inclusion of a model of color: just a detail…. Real diversity is a lofty goal more aspire to than achieve.”

Exposing porn viewers to trans men will inevitably open audience members’ minds (and wallets) to seeing more trans dudes get it on with their favorite porn actors. So, let’s open your minds (and your zippers).

Let’s introduce you to 5 other trans gay porn stars you should know:

 

1. Luke Hudson

Hudson is from Kansas and decided to start performing on-camera to pay for school. He played hockey and track-and-field growing up. He also plays guitar and is a big David Bowie fan. Hudson claims to have once been in a 24-hour threesome (topping and bottoming) with another porn star, though he prefers topping with his favorite dildo, “The Thunderstick.” He performs with the studio Jockpussy (link NSFW).

 

2. Cyd St. Vincent

Vincent is not only a performer at Bonus Hole Boys (link NSFW) but also the site’s talent manager. He lives in New York City, enjoys hiking and occasionally tweets about political issues like relief efforts for the recent Mexican earthquake and health care reform.

 

3. Jade Philips

Phillips is a self-professed exhibitionist who also performs with Bonus Hole Boys and is versatile and into watersports. He’s also a fan of acro-yoga, a form of yoga that combines gymnastics, tumbling, acrobatics and some aerial moves. He once appeared in a totally SFW list of rising black trans male porn stars and in a revealing video interview. He sees his on-camera work as a way to protest transphobia and help younger trans people accept themselves.

 

4. James Darling

Darling grew up in a religious family in Atlanta, Georgia. He lives in Oakland, California, now and appreciates the strong queer community and radical community there. He started performing in porn around 2009 and began directing around 2012. He’s the founder of the site FTM Fucker (link NSFW). To see a video interview with him, head here.

 

5. Buck Angel

No list of trans gay porn stars would be complete without including the superstar himself, Buck Angel. Angel is a trailblazer who found it difficult to transition into porn, as studios weren’t sure what to do with an ambitious female-to-male performer. He found it similarly difficult to become a sex-positive advocate in the trans community as many accused him of enabling cis people to fetishize trans bodies.

Angel has since appeared in two documentaries about himself (Sexing the Transman and Mr. Angel), and his educational presentation “Bucking the System” has the tagline “It’s not what’s between your legs that defines you.”

 

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that Cyd St Vincent lived in San Francisco.
