Dynamic and androgynous, Drew Deveaux has been bending over and shaking up the porn world since her explosive first shoot for Doing It Ourselves: The Trans Women Porn Project. Through self-creation and self-exploration, Drew’s work explores gender and power, shame and transcendence, play and authenticity. Pushing boundaries and playing with edges, Drew is a master of dirty talk with a Master of Science and is equally in her element with her face gagged in a pillow or behind a lecturn. In her short career, Drew has worked in both mainstream & queer porn, from features to gonzo, and is proud to have worked with Directors Courtney Trouble, Nica Noelle, Carlos Batts, Tobi Hill-Meyer, Beau Charlie and Shine Louise Houston.
