Buck Angel documentary ‘Mr. Angel’ - about the life of the transgender adult star - available on DVD in December In the United States, it’s Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, November 28, 2013. It’s an inspirational time of the year for millions, so what’s more appropriate than the December 3 release of QC Cinema’s DVD Mr. Angel? Directed by Dan Hunt, Mr. Angel is described in the film’s press release as "an inspirational story of rare perseverance" that features "an unlikely hero": Buck Angel, himself described as a "transgender advocate, educator, and porn pioneer." As found in the SXSW Film Festival’s synopsis of Mr. Angel, Buck Angel "was born female yet always knew he was male." His parents raised him as a boy until he reached adolescence, and that’s when things took a downhill turn: drug addiction, homelessness, suicide attempts. Eventually, Buck Angel underwent a double mastectomy. »
