Misty Eyez is enjoying her second act. The former drag queen (and SFGN Best Of winner for several years) traded in the nightlife at Lips, Boardwalk, and other top venues for a new career. She’s now the director of women’s program & education and case manager for transgender services at Sun Serve.
Her new role focuses on different areas of education — teaching people throughout the South Florida community cultural sensitivity and bias training — and linking trans services to Sun Serve clients.
“There are many hurdles and obstacles in a transgender person’s life, maybe it’s social support, job placement, or housing,” she said. “There are many things that transgender people need, that I can potentially help with.”
Her new career is not the only major change in Misty’s life. She’s coming up on her one herfirst wedding anniversary this summer. As for her performing as a drag queen, Misty rarely goes on stage anymore, but if you’re lucky you may catch her at a fundraiser or special event. “There is a part of me that misses it, but my heart has shifted to helping my community in a different way.”
