Gia Darling is a transsexual adult film actress, director, and producer. Her current occupation is pornographic actress. She owns and operates Gia Darling Entertainment. She’s the star and director of the Transsexual Heartbreakers series, which runs to 36 volumes and counting. She won the Transsexual Performer of the Year AVN Award in 2006. Gia’s been in the business since 1998, when she was working as an assistant to Roy Alexandre; when a T-girl failed to show up for a photo shoot, Roy convinced Gia to step in and sub for her, and the ball was rolling.
Not long afterward, Gia made her film debut in Transsexual Beauty Queens #1. She’s been starring in movies for ten years since then, and she credits her longevity in part to her time as Roy’s assistant. “That job was the best thing ever. I got to see all the girls who came through and learn from them what to do — and what not to do — to survive; I learned how to use the industry to my advantage.” She went on to star in a few future volumes of Transsexual Beauty Queens, but she had bigger things in mind for herself. Part of her survival strategy was forming her own company, Gia Darling Entertainment. Although she only performs in the Transsexual Heartbreakers series, she directs other projects and series as well.
A self-described “homebody,” she is content to spend quiet evenings at home reading a good book in the company of her dogs, Precious and Preston. Gia was born in Guatemala, but there’s no trace of it left, to listen to her; she visits there every year. She’s a giggly girl and can hardly get a sentence out without laughing about something. Adopted by a single mother, she has been living in Valencia, California since she was three years old. She has houses in California and Guatemala. Gia is involved in a number of charities in Guatemala that help gay, bi, and transgender kids. Gia has been living as a girl since she was little; “I’ve always like girly things — when I was little I’d rather play with a doll than a truck every time, and I think of myself as a straight woman now.”
