GUEST BIO and LINKS
Stephan Ferris is an entertainment attorney with over a decade of experience as a performer in the adult entertainment industry, perhaps better known to many as Blue Bailey. He counsels LGBTQ+ and adult content creators, and he is part of an emerging generation of openly queer and sexually progressive activist attorneys who see the law as an opportunity to make social, civic, and cultural change. He uses his skills and experiences to amplify this perspective to a wide range of audiences through multiple published pieces and speaking engagements related to queer issues, media, and the law. Stephan founded the Law Office of Stephan F. Ferris in 2020 to extend his experience in business and build upon his passion for equity, diversity, fairness, and inclusion in entertainment, cannabis, and psychedelics.
Stephan balances his professional life with active social and volunteer commitments including service with various Bay Area LGBTQI+ organizations, such as Bay Area Lawyers for Individual Freedom (“BALIF”), where he currently presides as Programs Co-Chair. Stephan is also the producer and co-host of the entertainment law podcast Reading is Fundamental. He is licensed to practice in the State of California with his primary residence in San Francisco and an office centrally located in the heart of San Francisco’s Castro District.
