ABOUT JIZ LEE
Jiz Lee has worked in the adult industry for over a decade, spanning independent erotic films and hardcore gonzo pornography. A versatile performer and key player in the queer porn movement, Jiz has been the recipient of multiple AVN and XBiz Award industry nominations and Feminist Porn Awards, and in 2015 was named an honoree of The Trans 100. (Jiz is agender and uses the gender-neutral pronouns: they/them.)
Jiz works behind the scenes at San Francisco queer porn company Pink & White Productions (CrashPadSeries.com, PinkLabel.tv) and fundraises for LGBTQ and sex worker-focused organizations through their erotic philanthropic art project, Karma Pervs. They’ve presented on porn at Princeton University, the American Studies Association Conference, and were featured on MSNBC, Fox News, and proudly, Lifehacker.

In 2007, Jiz began to blog their adventures in the adult industry on JizLee.com. Their writing has since appeared in The Feminist Porn Book, Best Sex Writing, and Jezebel.com.
