Calpernia Addams is an actress, musician, author and activist, also known for her work in and for the transsexual community through Deep Stealth Productions. Deep Stealth produces entertainment and educational material promoting understanding and growth centering on the trans community. Recently she performed alongside Jane Fonda in the 10th anniversary production of “The Vagina Monologues” at the New Orleans Super Dome to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Calpernia starred in MTV/Logo’s “Transamerican Love Story“, a show examining dating and romance for trans people. Her memoir, Mark 947, details her Southern childhood and service as a field medical combat specialist with the Navy and Marines in Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War.

Calpernia also has been entertaining for over 20 years, on stage and screen, for straight and gay audiences in venues and Pride celebrations across the country. Her underground dance singles have played in clubs around the world and are top sellers in their genres on iTunes and Amazon.  A confident and hilarious event hostess, she takes effortless command of a room and leaves the audience laughing for standup comedy shows, charity auctions, awards ceremonies, fundraiser bingo, drag, burlesque and live music shows. Her activism work has included fundraising for all major GLBT causes, with specific focus in the past on work with GLAAD, SLDN, The Task Force (NGLTF) and women’s charities such as VDay and Peace Over Violence (LACAAW).
