Whenever we think of great Cher impersonators, we think of Candi Stratton, the trans pioneer who became one of American Airlines first openly trans flight attendants back in 1989.

Candi came on the Feast of Fun podcast way back in 2009 right after she won Miss American Goddess and now ten years later, at the tender age of 56, she has a new title under her belt – Miss Trans USA.

Today, the incredibly delightful Candi Stratton joins us to chat about her amazing career flying the friendly skies and her journey from a baby showgirl at LaCage to her role as Miss Trans USA.
