In observance of Transgender Day of Remembrance, GLAAD's Entertainment Media team is proud to bring you an exclusive video of fabulously multi-talented performer Candis Cayne sharing her experiences in Hollywood as a transgender actress.

Candis guest starred on this week's episode of Nip/Tuck on FX and is best known for her groundbreaking role as Carmelita on ABC's Dirty Sexy Money. As the first transgender actress to play a recurring transgender character on network primetime television, Candis has been a trailblazer in increasing the visibility of the transgender community. Candis recently shot a pilot called Yes, We Candis and can be seen performing every Monday night at The Abbey in West Hollywood.
