Remembering XXX performer Tegan Toxik…
It’s been reported that Tegan Toxik (aka Tegan Last) has passed away at the age of 25. Grooby, the adult studio that produced much of Tegan’s work, shared the news that she died at her Las Vegas home last Monday (3/22). Details regarding her cause of death haven’t been released, although statements from her friends seem to suggest that Tegan may have taken her own life.
I never met Tegan Toxik and this is the first time that I’m writing about her. That being said, when I learned that she was a disabled Army veteran who had served in Afghanistan, my heart sank. As an Army veteran myself, it’s always a punch to my gut whenever I hear of something like this. The suicide rate among veterans is shockingly high and, tragically, it seems to have claimed another soul in Tegan Toxik.
In a statement released by Steven Grooby, founder of Grooby Media, he remembered the performer by saying…
“I only met her a few times, but if I had to sum her up in one word, it would be that she was very sweet. It always comes as a shock when someone so young, with so many friends, and who seemed to be moving forward with her life, ends it so suddenly and tragically. I know she was well-liked among the community, and many models counted her as a friend — as seen by their many tributes and celebrations of her left on social media.“
“Tegan was a disabled veteran of the Army, having served in Afghanistan and had been living in Las Vegas in recent years, where she had many friends and was part of the trans adult community, co-creating content as well as working on her own content.“
A GoFundMe campaign has been started to help cover her funeral expenses and to provide some assistance to her partner.
