Hollie Stevens, known in the adult film industry as “The Queen of Clown Porn,” lost her battle with breast cancer earlier this month. She was 30. In an interview with the SF Weekly last April, Stevens said she avoided going to the doctor after first finding the lump because she didn’t have health insurance. “In January of last year I freaked out and went to the doctor. I wasn’t expecting that they would tell me I have cancer. I felt like a bomb had just been dropped on me.” She underwent chemotherapy and eventually had a mastectomy. A city program, Healthy San Francisco, as well as fundraising efforts from family and friends covered most of her medical bills, according to the obit. “I cannot believe how many people care, how good my fans are and how much complete strangers have helped me,” she said during her treatment, before poignantly adding: “This is unreal. Not everyone hates clowns after all!” But within a year, the cancer spread to her other breast, her ribs, liver and brain. “After a long hard fight, she died peacefully, and surrounded by people she loved,” her husband said. Stevens was credited with pioneering a genre of porn films known as “clown porn,” which featured actors in clown makeup having sex. From the Daily News: “The angelic-looking, blue-eyed starlet appeared in around 170 films, including some mainstream porn flicks, and also modeled and wrote articles for the underground ‘horror-rotica’ magazine Girls and Corpses. She got her start in 2000 as a stripper touring the U.S. under the nom de pole Holly Wood.” An obituary posted in her hometown paper called Stevens “an accomplished painter, DJ, performance artist and kickboxing champion.”
