LOS ANGELES - Adult talent agency L.A. Direct Models has signed transsexual performer Kimber James.
"It had been suggested many times over the years that we should consider representing the TS genre of performers, and for various reasons we had not done that to this point," said agency owner Derek Hay. "Not that Direct Models has ever been afraid to bring new ideas to the industry; the time just never felt right. With Kimber, we felt we had been introduced to an extraordinary talent, both beautiful and sexy, yet very level-headed and professional as well - the right combination to make her a superstar."
Originally from Miami, James got her start in the industry as an assistant to AVN award-winning TS star Gia Darling. She made her debut in Transsexual Babysitters 4 (Devil's Film) and currently has eight scenes to her credit.
"I'm really excited and very honored to be the first transsexual performer to be signed with L.A. Direct Models," James said. "I hope this will break barriers within the adult industry on how the industry perceives transsexuals, and take it more seriously."
James is moving from New York City to Los Angeles to pursue her goals in the adult video business. She said she dreams of becoming the first transsexual performer to sign a contract with a major adult studio such as Vivid Entertainment or Wicked Pictures and hopes to one day appear in Playboy. James said she would love to work with Digital Playground's Jesse Jane.
"We are delighted to work with and represent Kimber James and feel confident that she will exceed all our expectations," Hay said. "Direct Models also hopes that working with Kimber may assist to soften the rather stark lines between the straight and gay sides of the adult industry, which at times can be more pronounced even than we experience in society at large."
