(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Adult entertainment superstar Tasha Reign will be graduating from UCLA on Saturday, June 14, with a degree in Gender Studies. The often cited and interviewed media personality, who has also had her blogs and articles featured on numerous highly trafficked mainstream websites, is now set to take the next step in combining her studies and her work in the adult entertainment industry.
"Studying at UCLA and cultivating my humanist viewpoint, particularly in the field of feminism, has allowed my adult performance work to shine with a very personal touch," said Tasha. "I’m looking forward to now concentrating on producing, directing, and performance work, as well as continuing to use the education I received at UCLA to share my experiences and perspective with the public. I’m proud to be a Bruin and even more proud to be a part of the feminist porn movement!"
Commencement ceremonies for UCLA’s Class of 2014 Gender Studies graduates will start at Korn Convocation Hall, inside the Anderson Business School of Management at 10am. Ceremonies are restricted to graduates, faculty, staff and invited guests.
Tasha’s popularity and celebrity status has allowed her to speak out about sexual empowerment and feminism for a variety of media outlets, where her fans are drawn to her sexual nature, actions, and mind. In addition to being published in notable mainstream media outlets such as Huffington Post, Al Jazeera America, BroBible.com, and OC Weekly, Tasha participated on a recent panel at UCLA, titled "Porn, Prostitution, and Censorship: The Politics of Empowerment."
"Heartfelt congratulations to Tasha, a thoughtful and inquisitive student who brought a unique perspective to the classroom as an adult actress and filmmaker," says Jen Moorman, Ph.D., Lecturer in Gender Studies and Cinema and Media Studies at UCLA. "She is already an outspoken advocate for the adult video industry, and I have no doubt that she will bring the insights she has gained as a student at UCLA to her work in new and interesting ways."
UCLA’s Gender Studies department provides a quality education that emphasizes analytic and writing skills, qualitative research methods, and a historical and transnational understanding of social inequalities. Its faculty integrates feminist pedagogical approaches and their own research into their teaching. The department’s core courses address the concepts of gender and the body, gender and power, and gender and knowledge through a range of topics such as freedom and liberty, social movements, masculinities, work and leisure, politics of social justice, colonial and sexual violence, and visual culture and citizenship – topics Tasha works to incorporate into her editorials, interviews, and analysis on the adult film industry.
Earlier in 2014, Tasha Reign detailed her university experience as a porn star in an open letter to Belle Knox, the Duke student outed as an adult performer. The letter was published on HuffingtonPost.com. Reign’s time at UCLA has also been profiled in the school’s paper, the Daily Bruin, as well as LA Weekly.
Penthouse Pet Tasha Reign tours the country in addition to her on-screen directing and performing, where she continues to be one of the biggest draws at premier gentlemen’s clubs all around the country. Recent appearances include high-end venues in Pennsylvania, Florida, South Carolina, California, New York, Oregon, and Ohio. Tasha’s official website offers alternative ways to enjoy the star in addition to her mainstream writing contributions, including movies, photos, and live web appearances.
