Early Life

Angela White was born in Sydney, Australia on 4 March 1985. She lived in Central Sydney until she was eight-year-old, before moving with her family to a farm in Victoria. She moved back to the East Coast for high school.

Whilst in high school Angela White was teased for her sexuality. She said, “I openly identified as bisexual in my teens, and in high school I was criticised for being a slut and a lesbian.”

“Basically, I wasn’t doing my sexuality right.”

She revealed that this motivated her to enter the adult film industry, where she saw pornography as a celebration.

She said, “ I saw people on the screen having sex with multiple people, like, different locations, different people, multiple genders, and it was celebrated.”

In 2003, aged 18 and still in high school, Angela White started doing nude modelling.
