Veronica Vera’s multi-faceted career began with several years on Wall Street. Then she decided to earn an honest living as a sex journalist, porn star, erotic model, and sex workers’ rights activist. Her collaborations with artists include Robert Mapplethorpe and the women of Club 90, the first porn star support group: Jane Hamilton (aka Veronica Hart), Gloria Leonard, Candida Royalle and Annie Sprinkle. Veronica testified in Washington, D.C. for freedom of expression before a committee of the Senate Judiciary. Her testimony became part of the infamous Meese Report.
In 1992 she created the world’s first cross-dressing academy, Miss Vera’s Finishing School for Boys Who Want to Be Girls, and in 1997 wrote the book of the same name. She followed that book with Miss Vera’s Cross Dress For Success (2002)and Miss Vera’s Cross Gender Fun For All. (2016).
Veronica Vera continues to offer higher-heeled education at her NYC academy and on college campuses. She also fields offers from media producers while working on her memoir.
