Buck Angel became a pioneer in the porn industry as one of the first, and certainly now the most recognizable, female-to-male transsexual stars, cornering a niche that had barely been explored in the adult film world. Director Dan Hunt (whose film Cruel and Unusual won the Michael J. Berg Documentary Award at Frameline30) crafts an intimate portrait of the porn actor-turned-trans-activist, focusing on his struggles with acceptance on a personal, professional, and familial level, as well as his battle with substance abuse. Following Buck as he and his life partner Elayne restart their life together in Mexico, Mr. Angel looks beneath his macho exterior and finds a touching portrait of an outsider who is both vulnerable and empowered.


“Mr Angel”


With his bald head, red goatee, chiseled physique, and a tattoo of the word “Pervert” across his back—Buck Angel certainly had the look of a Titan Man, but there was one thing separating him from the other male co-stars: his original plumbing.
