Wendy Williams is an American transsexual pornographic actress and model.

Early life and career[edit]

Williams grew up in Pikeville, Kentucky and, in her own words, "grew up on food stamps and charity".[citation needed] Her family worked in the local coal mines. Her great-grandmother took her, when Williams was in the sixth grade, due to her father's alcoholism.[citation needed] Williams graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication.[1][2]

In 2000, she was working in gay clubs doing drag shows when a friend showed her some of the websites of solo transsexuals, such as Meghan Chavalier. That prompted her to set up her own website, which did not have any nudity initially. Williams did not shoot her first nude photo shoot until 2002.[citation needed] In 2003, Williams met up with Joanna Jet while shooting a scene for her Jet Set series of DVDs. Jet began mentoring Williams by showing her the steps needed to produce a DVD for distribution. Williams began shooting her own series of videos for Jet's company called Wendy's Wild Shemales.[citation needed] Williams formed her own production company in 2005.[1][2][3]

Since forming the company, she moved back to Kentucky and continued to produce and direct for Hot Wendy Productions. In 2010, she was the second only transsexual (first being Joanna Jet) to present an award on stage at the AVN Awards that aired on Showtime.[citation needed] She co-presented with comedian Margaret Cho.[citation needed]

Williams appeared at the 2016 Transgender Erotica Awards to present a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award to performer Kimberly Devine.[4]
