Ryder Monroe is a multi-talented adult film star, musician and model who made her industry debut in 2011. Over the years Ryder’s sizzling scenes in several Grooby, Evil Angel and Devil’s Film productions have earned her numerous “Best New Face”, “Best Solo Model” and “Best Hardcore Performer” nominations at the Transgender Erotica Awards.
So where did it all begin? Hailing from Reston, Virginia, but currently based in Los Angeles, California, Ryder has always been a passionate musician who attended The Institute of Audio Research in Manhattan before she embarked upon her adult film career. Ryder loved studying and living in New York City, enthusiastically stating in her June 2011 Caramel’s TGirls interview that;
“I loved my time in New York, the people and culture are unlike any other city. People don’t know this, but my time in NYC is actually where I familiarized myself with the trans community and really began to discover myself as a trans woman. At the time I was pursuing production and working with local artists. I was working mostly in hip hop music, lots of late night sessions. I had so much fun…more fun than I should have, probably, but mostly I learned a lot about the business and myself…
Music is so much a part of who I am, but it is also a constant reminder of who I was before I transitioned. I have my moments where I really want to pursue music as an artist again. I often wonder if there is a place for me, as a trans woman in the pop music industry. At the same time, I do have several songs that have been placed with major artists that have yet to be released so, in some right, I am indefinitely a part of the music industry…
Musically my influences are artists like Tokio Hotel, David Bowie, and Duran Duran as well. I love Lady Gaga and other trailblazers who don’t fit the status quo and push the limits of what society considers normal. I have a great deal of respect for that, and that is what I try to do. Often times throughout my childhood and teenage years I’d been mistaken as a girl, even before I began wearing makeup. Most people were very encouraging about my androgynous look as an artist, but there were people (mainly females) who had negative things to say about my look. Growing up I did experience quite a bit of bullying because of my naturally androgynous look but when I found music, I found a place where I was more accepted because of my uniqueness”.
Ryder first started working in the adult entertainment industry as a cam girl. In no time at all, Ryder began to attract a devoted fan following and she was soon spotted by a photographer from the SMC Network who approached her about the possibility of shooting some solo sex scenes. And the rest is history! Talking about these early years in her February 2015 Trans Ethics interview, Ryder highlighted how;
“I had just started transitioning and I was on Twitter posting pics, and doing the private cam stuff. A photographer from SMC contacted me and asked if I’d like to shoot. I was very flattered and extremely shy and insecure, but I thought that doing a shoot might help me with my confidence. So I did the shoot and it went really well. To my surprise the next day they asked me if I’d like to sign with them and do a site. The rest is history, I suppose…
I needed an income. I had just gotten out of a contract as a songwriter and artist. My life was in disarray. It was both an exhilarating and terrifying time in my life. Exhilarating because I was now living my truth. Terrifying because I was a high school drop-out with no skills but music, and I knew I needed to grow up fast. Not to mention just the newness of like every single aspect of life. I had been extremely immature before I transitioned. I had never had a relationship. I was a virgin. I was probably like half a decade behind socially…I was at the right place at the right time and I wouldn’t change a thing. The last four years have been a blast”.
Ryder Monroe : Adult Film Career
Ryder filmed her first ever solo scene in May 2011 for the prominent production company SMC Network. Over the years Ryder has shot many sultry solo scenes for SMC Network which have earned her numerous “Best Solo Model” nominations at the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Transgender Erotica Awards (TEAs). Ryder has enjoyed posing for these seductive photo sets and divulged during her February 2015 Trans Ethics interview that;
“I prefer the modeling aspect of the shoots. Sometimes I’ll be doing a shoot and really getting into modeling and looking pretty and then the director will be like: ‘Okay… now pull your panties to the side when you bend over’… and I’m like ‘…oh yeah… we’re making porn…’ I forget. (laughter)”.
Want to know the best part? Alongside her sensual solo scenes, Ryder has collaborated with SMC Network on a wide range of BDSM, femdom, latex and leather fetish shoots for their popular porn site TGirl Fetishes. Our top picks? They’d have to be her kinky Ryder Gets Spanked shoot, her saucy Rubber Steel Ass Toy – Ryder Monroe scene, her titillating Ryder Leather Jacket, Ryder Red Corset and Ryder Monroe Bound fetish scenes as well as her raunchy Mistress Surgeon Trains Ryder Monroe femdom shoot. Not to be missed!
In fact, many of Ryder’s raunchiest web clips have been featured in the SMC compilation title TGirl Fetishes (2012) also starring captivating kinksters Morgan Bailey, Kimberly Kills, Alisha, Sunshyne Monroe and Jenna Rachels. You’ll be happy to hear that Ryder has appeared in several best-selling SMC movies throughout her adult film career including Trustfund Trannies (2013) that was nominated for “Best DVD” at the 2013 TEAs, “Clever Title of the Year” at the 2014 AVN Awards and “Transsexual Release of the Year” at the 2014 XBIZ Awards. Ryder’s performance in Trustfund Trannies even earned her high praise from XCritic column writer Apache Warrior who highlighted in his July 2013 film review how;
“Long legged and pretty Ryder Monroe is placed on an allowance on account of her very expensive spending habits…This film could be nominated for Best Transsexual Release for the AVN Awards. Each scene is developed well with a good entertaining storyline…Ryder Monroe and Natalia are super sexy. Natassia Dreams and Morgan Bailey are cute in a girly-girly way. Liberty Harkness is solid as the opening act. I highly recommend this gem”.
A landmark moment in Ryder’s adult film career occurred in late 2011 when she made her Grooby Network debut. This saucy solo scene, titled The Early Years – Ryder Monroe!, was directed by Remy and promoted via TGirls.xxx in October 2011. Ryder has collaborated with Remy on several saucy solo scenes for TGirls.xxx including Ryder Monroe In Lace! In March 2012 and The Sexy Ryder Monroe! in May 2012.
As well as her ongoing collaborations with Remy, Ryder started to shoot some hot hardcore scenes with leading cinematographer Blackula. Most notably, Ryder’s raunchy hardcore scene with Wolf Hudson was featured in Blackula’s Grooby movie Blackula and the Wolf: House of 10,000 Shemales (2012) which was nominated for “Best DVD” at the 2012 TEAs and “Transsexual Release of the Year” at the 2013 XBIZ Awards. This kinky compilation title was highly recommended by adult film critic Apache Warrior who stated in his September 2012 XCritic column review that;
“Blackula and the Wolf: House of 10,000 Shemales is directed by Blackula. Blackula is an amazing photographer who I think shoots stylishly glamorous photos. It’s always a delight to see him direct transsexual films and bring his photographic eye to a sex scene. I really like how he sets the tone for his movie shoot and how his performers are fully aware of their task at hand as well as his whereabouts. Blackula is one of a kind…
Ryder Monroe and Wolf Hudson are immediately making out on the screen…The fondling activity also sets a good simmering heat in the atmosphere. I love seeing Ryder’s gorgeous body…The POV shots as well as the close-up ones were much better and showcased Ryder’s beauty more than the ones that were farther away…After viewing this flick, I can definitely state that this production has the best collection of gorgeous trannies in a film this year. Each one is amazingly sexy. Wolf Hudson also deserves much credit in generating a solid fucking display. We do see his wide-ranging talents throughout this film. I was impressed with his soft and tender side since I usually see his hard pounding and vigorous side in mainstream porn. I can see this highly recommended sensual film be nominated for Best Transsexual Release for the year 2012″.

Want to know the most impressive part? Over the years Ryder has received many coveted award nominations including;
- 2011: Transgender Erotica Awards nominee “Best New Face”
- 2011: Transgender Erotica Awards nominee “Best Hardcore Model”
- 2011: Transgender Erotica Awards nominee “Best Hardcore Performer”
- 2012: Transgender Erotica Awards nominee “Best Solo Model”
- 2013: Transgender Erotica Awards nominee “Best Solo Model”
- 2015: Transgender Erotica Awards nominee “Best Solo Performer”
Upon receiving these notable nominations, Ryder has always thanked her fans for their ongoing support. Talking about her award nominations during her February 2015 Trans Ethics interview, Ryder stated that;
“I’ve been nominated the last four years multiple times, but I have yet to win anything. I like to think I’m the Susan Lucci of transsexual porn. (laughter)… There’s so much bias against TS performers (and TS women in general). We deserve an award show of our own that understands and appreciates the porn we make… and just the beauty, and all around bad-assery that is trans women…the TEAs are about a community. It’s an event that celebrates us all. It’s not really competitive so much as it is a fun way to acknowledge a community of performers who have worked hard in this industry. It’s an event for not only the performers, but the fans as well…my fans are respectful. I have some lovely fans. (big smile)”.
Ryder has always been a confident performer who has been keen to utilise her adult film industry status in order to support fellow trans women. For instance, when she was asked to impart some words of wisdom to trans women who may be struggling with issues regarding their self-image during this February 2015 Trans Ethics interview, Ryder stated;
“Try and love yourself. Know your worth and only associate with people that uplift and empower you. As trans women we’re often conditioned to think that we deserve less. Self-hate, self-deprecation, internalized transphobia and misogyny… trans women exist in a world where we are constantly bombarded with images of cissexism and transmisogyny so much that it can often turn inwards. Self-love, perseverance, and patience are fundamental ideals to aspire to that can break that cycle of outside hate marring the inside peace. But self-love above all. Love yourself and treat yo’self!”.
Ryder Monroe : Industry Hiatus & Comeback Career

I produce music electronically, and I sing and write songs”.
