Gia Darling is a transsexual adult film actress, director, producer, entrepreneur, and media personality. Darling was born in Guatemala, then a single mother adopted her when she was two years old. At age three, Darling moved with her mother to Valencia, California. From the age of 15 on, Darling dressed and lived as a female.
She describes her early years as idyllic, but says that she first encountered problems because of her feminine ways during her junior high school days.
Transformation and surgeriesEdit
At 15, Darling used hormones she obtained from friends to begin her transformation, acquiring breast implants three years later. For her, the implants (and other procedures) were enough, she says, to "validate" her womanhood, and she has opted not to undergo sex reassignment surgery, claiming that it is "What is in-between the ears, not the legs, that make you a woman". However, she admits to having had 44 cosmetic surgeries to further feminize her facial structure. According to her website, she has over 100 procedures done in addition to the surgery. Included in this are hip, buttock, breast, chin, and cheek implants, some done numerous times.
She owns and operates Gia Darling Entertainment. A self-described "homebody," she is content to spend quiet evenings at home reading a good book in the company of her dogs, Precious and Preston.
