Lin's move to the VNA makes her the first transsexual performer to join an established ''mainstream" porn star network. She will also be the first trannsexual performer to do live events on the network’s camshow platform for solo models, VNALive.com.
The VNA's list of well-known stars includes Julia Ann, Deauxma, Sara Jay, Siri, Puma Swede and Bobbi Eden.
"I couldn't be happier than joining the VNA,” said Lin, who is originally from the Phillipines. “With my Trans500 deal and now my VNA contract, a lot of new avenues are opening for me. Some people may look at it as a risk to leave a transsexual-only website network and join a standard porn star network. I look at it as an opportunity to break down more barriers and show transsexual performers have a lot more popularity and our niche is becoming more and more mainstream. I am going to stay close to my roots and shoot the type of content my fans expect, but plan on shooting exciting new stuff for my upcoming site."
The VNA network is run by Internet phenom Vicky Vette, who just picked up Best Performer Website at the 2014 XBIZ Awards.
"I am always looking to push boundaries and explore new things on the net,” Vette added. “I am proud the VNA is the first ‘mainstream’ porn star network to sign a transsexual star to the roster. It's not every day a performer of the caliber and name recognition of Eva Lin is available. I am also looking forward to doing more business with Trans500 where Josh [Stone] is making some impressive moves.''
Trans500.com and the VNA Network are planning to work closely in further websites, live content and internet expansion; and it is anticipated that Trans500.com will broadcast special events through the VNA platform.
"We are thrilled to continue helping Eva Lin as she reaches and explores new boundaries with her career, and I think teaming up with Vicky and the VNA definitely helps,” Trans500’s Josh Stone said. “We are looking to reach new levels of success."
Eva Lin's new website is being constructed around new content being shot by Stone and a few others.
