Joanna Jet is the stage name of a British trans woman who is a pornographic actress, model and director. Jet was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2015.

Career[edit]

Her first professional appearance was in 2000 when she featured in the DVDs, Transsexual Beauty Queens 15 and Shemales at the Hard Rock Cafe, both produced by Androgeny Productions. The following year, she underwent facial feminization surgery and also became a featured star for the top transsexual DVDs titles of the time from Androgeny, Evil Angel, Devil's films and Anabolic, she also started her own US based production company.

Other ventures[edit]

Jet had a production company called Altered States Productions which was based in the San Fernando Valley of California. After a series of travel visa difficulties with U.S. Customs and Immigration, Jet began working a VOD platform based in the United Kingdom. While working on this platform, she also produced a softcore release for Playboy TV UK. The release was titled Tranny and Susanna and was according to Jet the "first-ever softcore transsexual movie for cable, anywhere in the world" and was nominated for an AVN award in 2009. Starting in 2011, after resolving her travel visa issues, Jet began working in the United States again.[2]

Advocacy[edit]

As both a performer and a producer of transsexual pornography, she became an advocate for the acceptance of transsexuals by the mainstream adult industry and is recognized as influencing the addition of the "transsexual Performer of the Year" category to the AVN awards in 2004.
