Jonelle Brooks is a stunning adult film star, cam girl, model and entrepreneur who has been thrilling fans since 2011. Over the years, Jonelle Brooks’ sensational scenes for Evil Angel, Mancini Productions, SMC Network and Trans Angels have earned her a devoted global fan following as well as many notable “Best Actress – Parody Release”, “Transsexual Performer of the Year”, “Best Solo Website” and “Favorite Trans Performer (Fan Award)” nominations at the AVN, XBIZ and Transgender Erotica Awards.
So where did it all begin? Originally from Florida, but currently based in Sydney, Australia, Southern belle Jonelle Brooks grew up on a farm where she raised sheep and hogs. In fact, Jonelle Brooks was in the FFA (Future Farmers of America) and she has explained in her XCritic column interview how;
“I was an outdoor kid. I grew up with acres to play on with lots of critters. We played in the dirt, climbed trees, and explored the woods. I was in the FFA (Future Farmers of America), where I raised sheep and hogs. We showed our animals at the county fair and auctioned off our market animals there, too. It was great, and sometimes I find myself really missing the simplicity of it all”.
Alongside her aptitude for farming, Jonelle Brooks is a natural born performer who studied ballet from the age of 8 until she was 21 years old. At one point, Jonelle Brooks wanted to pursue a career in dance and it was initially her major in college. Jonelle Brooks has since graduated from the University of Sydney, Australia, and she is an MBA graduate (Master of Business Administration). Jonelle Brooks has highlighted how her ballet training has helped her throughout her porn career during her August 2015 AVN interview, divulging that;
“I studied ballet from the age 8 till 21. It was my first college major. I don’t think I physically could do a ballet performance anymore. It’s just so demanding on your body that after dancing for 15 years very hardcore-involved, five days a week, six hours a day, I just don’t know if I could go back to something like that. I know they say there’s muscle memory and everything like that, but I think at this point in my life, it might put me in the hospital. But thanks to my training, I think I have much better body awareness as to angles, what looks good. I’m very graceful. I understand lines and what that looks like to other people, so when it comes to posing or even in a video, how I angle myself to the camera, I’m just very body-conscious from dancing for so long, and it’s also kept me very fit and I have a very disciplined outlook on physical fitness”.
Jonelle Brooks has been aware of her true gender identity from a young age and she had an outgoing, sociable nature throughout high school. Talking about these early years during her May 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview, Jonelle Brooks recounted how;
“Ever since I can remember, I have been very feminine. I can recall staying home from school sick and dressing up in my mom’s skirts and high heels and parading around the house. I always had gals friends, was never out with the boys. I had more Barbies than my sister, and although the Dream House was purchased for both of us, it resided in my room. My first professional acting gig at age 8 really opened my eyes to other sexualities. There were many gay men in the production and one in particular was especially effeminate. I just wanted to be him but didn’t quite understand why or what any of it meant. I just knew I like how men treated this sissy boy like the lady he truly was…
People in high school would describe me as outgoing, very social, a little bit of a comedian and class clown, definitely sassy. I was super involved in high school. I was on my class steering committee all 4 years and was chairman of our prom committee. I was also on our HS dance team the Showdolls which competed nationally and won overall quite frequently I might add. I of course had bullies and heard all types of horrible name calling, but I only look back with the fondest of memories. I own a farm in my small hometown, and I am actually on my 10 year HS reunion committee”.
You may be interested to learn that Jonelle Brooks started performing as a drag queen when she was a teenager. It was here that Jonelle Brooks started to evaluate her true gender identity and how it related to the ‘real world’. As Jonelle Brooks put it in her own words within her August 2015 AVN interview;
“I grew up on a farm, raised sheep and hogs all through my childhood. I have five acres, so that takes up most of my time, but in my teens, I worked in many gay bars as a drag queen, and I found that I always wanted to stay in drag all the time, I was more happy in drag, and I guess I had to do some self-evaluation of what that meant in terms of the real world, not just nightlife. And I came to the realization I was trans and not just someone who dressed up for a night-time job”.
Jonelle Brooks first decided to pursue a career in porn in late 2011 in order to raise funds for her transition process. As such, Jonelle Brooks submitted some photos to the popular porn site SMClub. Impressed by her photos, SMClub flew Jonelle Brooks out to Los Angeles, California, where she filmed her official porn debut. And the rest is history! Talking about this pivotal period of her life during her XCritic column interview, Jonelle Brooks divulged that;
“Well, it was pretty simple when I look back at things. I submitted some pics to Shemale-Club and they asked me to come out to L.A. to shoot for a week. After my first shoot, they offered to produce a solo site. I was totally shocked, but very eager to get started. We began shooting my site a month later in Miami Beach and the rest has pretty much snowballed (no pun intended)…I think my favorite thing about being an adult performer is the flexibility in my life schedule it allows. There aren’t many jobs that can provide the amount of free time I enjoy. It also allows me to travel and see places I’ve never visited before”.
Jonelle Brooks : Adult Film Career
Jonelle Brooks made her official porn debut in September 2011 and many of her earliest sex scenes were filmed for the SMC Network porn sites SMClub and TGirl Pin-Ups. In fact, Jonelle Brooks was named as SMClub’s “TGirl Of The Year” in January 2012! We recommend watching Jonelle Brooks’ first ever hardcore scene with Wolf Hudson in Pin-Up TGirls #2 (2012) that was nominated for “Best Transsexual Sex Scene” at the 2013 AVN Awards. Jonelle Brooks discussed shooting her first ever sex scene during her January 2016 Porn OCD interview, recounting how;
“I was extremely nervous and thought that I might be in over my head. However, my scene partner Wolf Hudson was and is very professional and made things very simple and easy. It can take some time getting used to performing sexually with an audience and now it’s just old news”.
Fans of Jonelle Brooks will also love viewing her saucy scene with Vaniity in USA TGirls #4 (2012) and her sultry solo scene in TGirls Solo #2 (2012) which was nominated for “Best DVD” at the 2012 Tranny Awards, “Best Transsexual Release” at the 2013 AVN Awards and “Transsexual Release of the Year” at the 2013 XBIZ Awards. Featuring sexy TS pornstars Amy Daly, Brittany St. Jordan, Jesse Flores, Michelle Austin and Wendy Williams, TGirls Solo #2 was recommended by XCritic column writer Apache Warrior who stated in his May 2012 film review that;
“This film was a pleasant surprise. It is one of the best solo films of the year. I wanted to snuggle and cuddle with each and every one of these fine ladies. For those guys and gals who enjoy pleasuring oneself while watching trannies pleasure themselves, this film will definitely put you in the mood. It deserves its recommended rating and a Best Solo Release nomination”.
During this time, Jonelle Brooks launched her official website JonelleBrooks.com in collaboration with SMC Network. Jonelle Brooks’ website was an instant hit among fans and film critics and it led to Jonelle Brooks receiving many “Best Solo Website” nominations at the 2012 and 2013 Tranny Awards. In fact, Jonelle Brooks’ sizzling Jonelle Brooks And Trevor scene with Trevor Brooks that was released via JonelleBrooks.com was nominated for “Best Scene” at the 2012 Tranny Awards. Jonelle Brooks relaunched her official website in early 2017 whereupon she created the option for her fans to buy individual scenes as opposed to a full membership. The relaunch of JonelleBrooks.com was incredibly popular among Jonelle Brooks’ fans – so much so that it ultimately won “Best Solo Website” at the 2017 Transgender Erotica Awards. Talking about the relaunch of her website in a February 2017 XBIZ News press release, Jonelle Brooks explained how;
“After many years, I have relaunched my site to better reflect who I am now. Last summer I moved and started traveling all around Asia and Europe. I am so happy to bring you a sleek and fresh design. As my travels around the world continue, I look forward to sharing all new experiences and content with everyone”.
In addition to her SMC Network content, Jonelle Brooks has filmed a wide range of amazing scenes for the popular porn site Trans 500. You have to check out Jonelle Brooks’ seductive solo scene in Trans At Play #2 (2013) and her sensual solo scene in Eva Lin’s TS Dream Dates (2014) that was nominated for “Best Transsexual Release” at the 2014 Nightmoves Awards.
A landmark moment in Jonelle Brooks’ career occurred in the summer of 2015 when she was cast in the lead role of ‘Kaitlyn Gender’ for the Trans 500 feature movie Kaitlyn Gender: Based On A Not So True Story (2015). Inspired by the transition process of Olympic medallist and reality TV personality Caitlyn Jenner, this Trans 500 parody release showcased Jonelle Brooks in a sultry solo scene, a steamy scene with Angelina Castro and a sizzling scene with Toby Springs; all of which earned her a “Best Actress – Parody Release” nomination at the 2016 XBIZ Awards. Jonelle Brooks enjoyed tackling this acting role and she revealed in a March 2016 XBIZ News press release that;
“I studied Caitlyn Jenner a lot, and really wanted to get her mannerisms: how she carries herself, and most importantly, her voice. I like that this movie also promotes positivity for trans people. I think there will be a new understanding of what the real Caitlyn went through, and I hope all my fans will purchase the movie”.
Directed by Josh Stone and also starring Wendy Williams, Kylie Maria and Hannah Reese, Kaitlyn Gender: Based On A Not So True Story was a critical and commercial success which won “Transgender Release of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards and “Best DVD” at the 2016 Transgender Erotica Awards as well as being nominated for “Best Marketing Campaign – Individual Project” at the 2016 AVN Awards and “Parody Release of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards. Kaitlyn Gender: Based On A Not So True Story also received an ardent endorsement from XCritic column writer Sex Reed who conveyed in his December 2015 film review how;
“When Caitlyn Jenner appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair and won the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY Awards, I assumed a porn parody was inevitable and I was cautiously optimistic that it would be good for transsexual porn in the same way that Leaving Las Vegas was good for Nicolas Cage. My apprehension was, I think, due to a fear that this would be the porn equivalent to Oscar-bait mainstream films (AVN-bait?) and that it would be a mess of middlebrow smarm disguised as profundity. That was mostly for naught. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did, but this is a very good film. Jonelle Brooks gives us her star turn here, and in a just world, this performance would make her a household name among a more mainstream crowd. The movie is great because it doesn’t lose focus away from being a porn movie. It even had a scene where Caitlyn Jenner’s porn caricature is fucking Kim Kardashian’s! This is one of the movies where I find Ramon’s persona (and his outlandish wigs) a little much, so it’s not perfect. It is, though, highly recommended”.

“I will never forget the first trans scene I ever directed — for my movie ‘Hot for Transsexuals.’ I didn’t know Jonelle Brooks well before I shot her, but I felt our connection from the moment she walked onto my set. Not only is she one of the most beautiful women I have ever shot, she’s also the most intuitive and connective individuals to grace my footage. I had produced other trans content for other companies before, but this was so much more special to me. It was part of me. This scene was a collaboration between my performers and myself in the most intimate ways possible”.
“My fans are really going to like this one, because they get to see a very dominant side of me. I’m always a top, but not always this filthy and rough, and I’m glad Aiden gave me this chance to show this side of myself”.
