Buck Angel is a world-renowned motivational speaker, human rights activist, pioneering filmmaker and adult performer, and transmale sex-toy designer. While Buck was assigned female at birth, he never felt it in his core and struggled through life until he had the life-changing opportunity to transition from female to male and finally live life authentically. Buck’s mission is to inspire people to re-define gender and to foster a new generation as they discover the fluidity of sexuality and navigate gender politics. His message "It's not what between your legs that defines you" has sparked many a conversation and opened minds to the important message that gender is what you say it is for you, and that self-acceptance is not only what makes a person happy, it's how others come to understand you.
