It’s been over a year since Jahna Steele passed.I first saw & heard of her in the film “Transtasia”. Her story is a very interesting one because she was once known as the most beautiful showgirl in Las Vegas.But,the angelic looking Jahna Steele was actually a man.Here’s more on her from Wikipedia:
“Jahna Erica Steele (29 September 1958 — 24 January 2008) was an American transgender entertainer and Las Vegas showgirl who was voted Las Vegas’ “Sexiest Showgirl on The Strip” in 1991, “Entertainer of the Year, 1992,” and “Most Beautiful Showgirl, 1993.” She was fired after being outed as “a man” by a tabloid television show. Steele made numerous film and television appearances, including hosting a transgender beauty pageant featured in the film Trantasia.
Steele made her comeback in 2004 when she hosted The World’s Most Beautiful Transsexual Contest at the Riviera.  A documentary feature film based on the pageant, Trantasia, recognized Steele’s pioneering place in the history of the transsexual community. Steele was also featured on several segments of Entertainment Tonight in connection with Trantasia. Following the success of the film, Steele continued her singing career and was the spokesperson for Tingari Skin Care System. Steele was working on her “kiss-and-tell” autobiography, Always a Lady  when friends reported she died in Las Vegas.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.
I hope that her sweet soul is resting peacefully.
