The award-winning blues diva who describes herself as a “fat black drag queen trapped in a white woman’s body” has been a vocal supporter of the LGBT rights and “outsider” and misunderstood communities for more than 20 years.
Candye Kane has been been nominated for five Blues Music Awards, won ten San Diego Music Awards, has starred in a sold-out stage play about her life, and has fought pancreatic cancer over the last two years.
Candye has been a role model for the disenfranchised and a champion for large-sized women. She has fought tooth and nail for the equal rights of sexual minorities and the LGBT community, inspiring her music fans all around the world. Her fans consist of bikers, blues fans, punk rockers, drag queens, big girls, queers, burlesque dancers, rockabilly and swing dancers, grey-haired hippies, sex positive feminists, and everyday folk of all ages. Her full-time tour of spreading the message of equality, love, hope and empowerment began in 1992 and has been going strong ever since.
Unfortunately, Candye has been struck mercilessly by pancreatic cancer. While her most recent scans have come back clean, the substantial amount of medical treatments and the loss of income due to recovery time have left her in need of assistance. It is time for all of us, who have been supported for so long by someone as giving and empowering as Candye Kane, to give back in her time of need.
Don’t miss your chance to be a part of history and to help our dear sister get back on her feet!
