I will not hide. I will be who I am. I will be who I was meant to be, and I will not let others decide for me who I am.

Kandi resides in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. She is married to a wonderful, accepting wife and has grown children. Kandi is a crossdresser and has been since very early childhood. She recently accepted who she is and has been very active in going out in public since 2015.
Kandi is 5’ 10”, 155, wearing a size 10-12 dress, size 4 skirt.
Kandi tells us she usually goes out three times weekly, mostly to attend her church as well as volunteering for various organizations, which include The Cleveland Museum of Art, North Coast Men’s Chorus, Greater Cleveland Volunteers and three different community theaters. “I cannot express the joy that I have found in my life since Kandi became a reality and my purpose in life is to help anyway I can with my sisters and to be out and public to show all we are no different than anyone else. I always seek to interact directly with the public (which is why my activities all involve direct public interaction).” She also enjoys attending the theater, activities associated with her church and many other things women enjoy.
When not dressing, Kandi is an avid runner, competing in about 30 races annually, ranging from 5Ks to half marathons and full marathons. She is highly competitive, usually finishing near the top of these races, frequently winning her age group. She also enjoys music, attending many concerts and is a member and frequent visitor to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
