Bailey Jay (born November 5, 1988 in Richmond, Virginia, United States) is an American trans woman who is a pornographic actress, adult model, and podcaster.[1]

Early life[edit]

Bailey Jay originally gained fame on 4chan in 2007 under the moniker "Line Trap" after a video emerged of her attending Otakon that same year.[2]

Career[edit]

Bailey Jay appeared as "Harley Quinn" (after the comics character) on Grooby sites such as Shemale Yum where many of her sets featured references to cosplay and anime.[4] After successfully marketing herself with a number of website and DVD appearances, breast augmentation and a name change, Bailey launched her own adult website featuring soft- and hardcore erotica.[2] Though she has been featured in Evil Angel's DVD series, since 2011 she currently produces material exclusively for her own site.

In 2011 and 2012 she won the AVN Award for Transsexual Performer of the Year.[5][6] She also co-hosts the podcast The Bailey Jay Show (formerly Bailey Jay Radio) with her husband, photographer Matthew Terhune, the podcast The Trans Witching Hour with Bailey Jay (formerly Gender Coaching with Bailey Jay) that deals with spirituality,[7] and also co-hosts the transgender and transsexuality advice podcast Sugar and Spice (formerly Third Gender Radio) with Jen Richards of We Happy Trans.[8][9] On March 21, 2012, Bailey Jay's single, "You're Getting Lucky Tonight", was released to Spotify and iTunes.[10] Bailey has also made several guest appearances on Sirius XM Radio The Jim Norton Show with Jim Norton, giving advice to callers. She is currently represented by literary agent Eric W. Ruben with plans to release a book on sex and femininity in the near future.[11]
