Articulate, handsome and well-built, Buck Angel exudes the kind of self-confidence that signals a man comfortable in his own skin. And yet he was born female. Puberty wreaked havoc on this former tomboy, who struggled with depression and drugs until his late 20s, when he met a sympathetic therapist.
