Yasmin Lee (born June 3, 1983) is an American transsexual pornographic film actress and model.

Lee is of Thai, Cambodian, Chinese, and Brazilian heritage. Her family moved from Thailand to the Philippines before finally settling down in Orange County, California. She joined the U.S. Navy at age 18, but left soon after due to sexuality-based harassment to pursue a career as a drag entertainer and make-up artist.[1] She worked as a make-up artist for Hollywood actresses and music video sets.[2] After beginning to transition, she left her job as a make-up artist due to fear of transphobic discrimination and began work as an assistant on pornography sets. She then worked as a casting director on porn films until she took the place of a woman who did not show up and began her career as an actor in adult films. Her pornography career features dozens of feature titles as well as work on the internet. She has twice been nominated for an AVN Award for her work in transsexual pornography. She has made her way into mainstream roles with special appearances in various TV shows including The Maury Povich Show and The Tyra Banks Show. Additionally, she has acted in a few non-pornographic films, such as the 2011 horror film Red Ice and the hit 2011 comedy The Hangover Part II.[3] In January 2010 Lee announced that she will have two surgeries in 2010 - one for enhanced breast-cup size, from 34C to D, and another for circumcision.[4]
