Afterward, Angel began focusing on his physical appearance and searched for a surgeon that dealt with upper-body modifications, to remove his breasts.
Bottom surgery was another aspect he was looking to change, because he wanted to obtain a biological penis to fit the male schema.
At school, his peers began teasing his physical appearance because he was dressed as a boy, but was a girl in their eyes.
Those words wore down Angel’s mental stability as he became more isolated and shy making it harder for him to communicate with others.
In the film he appears in a sex scene with porn star Wolf Hudson, produced by mainstream photographer Justin Lubin.
Angel’s pornographic content was one of the building blocks that set the foundation for his future educational demonstrations.
Angel’s porn star identity made it difficult for him to express his ideas as he couldn’t speak on behalf of himself and that the industry did not know what to do with him either.
Additionally, the hostility from the transsexual community did not contribute positively to his image as they believed he was fetishizing them.
However, he quickly realized that there was not any sufficient technology to create what he desired.
Angel gradually concluded that he did not need a penis because it is not what defined him as a man.
This concurrence was one of the first discussions that didn’t ostracize and generalize him as being a “gay woman.” Rather, he was embraced by his therapist, who shared the same view point of him identifying as a male.
Thus, Angel began researching various methods of transitioning into a man—a process that he began at the age of 28.
To cope with his distress, he turned to alcohol and marijuana as a means of escape.
