Early childhood development and education
Nora Louise Kuzma, better known as Traci Lords, was born on May 7, 1968, in Steubenville, Ohio, United States. She is of Caucasian heritage and is a citizen of the United States.
Patricia Kuzma and Louis Kuzma, who worked as a steelworker, are the parents of Lords. Lorraine is her older sister, and Rachel and Grace are her younger sisters.
Lords’ parents split when she was seven years old because her father was an alcoholic who regularly abused her mother.
After his parents divorced, Lords moved to her great house, grandmother’s which was close by, with her mother and three sisters.
Lords, she claimed, had had a difficult adolescence. Moreover, she was raped by a 16-year-old male at her friend’s birthday party when she was ten years old.
She began attending Redondo Union High School in 1982. She developed a belligerent attitude throughout this period.
Traci Lords began her adult film career when she was 15 years old, acting in a few films. Lords appeared in John Waters’s Cry-Baby and Serial Mom in 1994. She has also starred in a number of television shows, including Melrose Place. HarperCollins published her autobiography, ‘Traci Lords: Underneath It All,’ in July 2003.
Lords were cast in Kevin Smith’s comedy film ‘Zack and Miri Make a Porno’ in 2008, alongside Katie Morgan, a former adult film actress.
In the following years, she starred in the science fiction film ‘Princess of Mars.’ Some of her major television work as a mainstream actor included the schizo-sicko serial murderer Sharon Lesher in season 2 of Profiler (1996) from 1997 to 1998, as well as the tough heroine Jordan Radcliffe in the last season of the sci-fi series First Wave (1998) from 2000 to 2001. Lords even tried her hand at writing and directing a short film, which led to a new career as an independent film writer-director.
Traci Lords has numerous affairs and married three men over her life. Brook Yeaton, an American actor, was her first husband from 1990 to 1995.

When FBI officials learned Lords was underage in May 1986, they arrested her. This meant that any films having her in them were unlawful to rent or buy, and video stores across the country hastened to remove them. Traci’s first legal adult film was I Love You (1987), which she made on her 18th birthday in Paris, France.
