LOS ANGELES — LA Direct Models has announced the signing of Kimber James to become the adult talent agency’s first transsexual performer. James has performed in a total of eight scenes to date.

James started out in the adult entertainment industry as popular transsexual performer Gia Darling’s assistant. Her first movie was “Transsexual Babysitters 4” for Devil’s Film.

“I’m really excited and very honored to be the first transsexual performer to be signed with LA Direct Models,” James said. “I hope this will break barriers within the adult industry on how the industry perceives transsexuals and take [us] more seriously.”

James’ goal is to become the first transsexual star to sign an exclusive contract with Vivid Entertainment or Wicked Pictures. LA Direct Models represents talent for both companies.

“It had been suggested many times over the years that we should consider representing the TS genre of performers, and for various reasons we had not done that to this point,” LA Direct Models owner Derek Hay said. “Not that Direct Models has ever been afraid to bring new ideas to the industry — the time just never felt right.

“With Kimber we felt we had been introduced to an extraordinary talent, both beautiful and sexy, yet very level-headed and professional as well, the right combination to make her a superstar. Direct Models also hopes that working with Kimber may assist to soften the rather stark lines between the straight and gay sides of the adult industry, which at times can be more pronounced even than we experience in society at large.”
