The Hermaphrodite: Candis Cayne
Candis Cayne helps mark an important step for the media industry as she takes on the portrayal of a trans character on the Prime Time CBS crime drama CSI: NY. Her portrayal marks an important milestone because not only will she be playing a trans part, but because she is a transsexual actress. ( To her credit, Alexandra Billings has also made advances for the trans community, appearing on such shows as Grey's Anatomy. )
Cayne is an actress, dancer, singer and all-around showwoman who has been gaining attention since she moved to New York in the early '90s to become a performer. Her credits include television, film, print ads, commercials and videos. Windy City Times spoke with Cayne over the phone to discuss her growing fame, the importance of positive visibility for the trans community and why she is so happy in her life and her choices.
