The Lady Chablis has died aged 59. The trans star played her the most famous role in the ‘Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil’. Her family and friends confirmed that she died from pneumonia after a month spent in the hospital.
“The legacy that she wanted to leave was one of ‘believe in who you are and never let the world change who you are,’”says her sister . “Love yourself first and respect yourself first and others will love and respect you.”
“The Lady Chablis, who stole hearts – and the spotlight – in ‘Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil,’ passed this morning surrounded by friends and family,” Club One said in a statement Thursday. “Chablis always wanted to give the audience, be it 15 or 1500, the best that she had,” the club added in the statement. “With her declining health, she regretted that her body wouldn’t allow her to give more.”
