My heart is so saddened to wake up to hearing this amazing soul has passed away. This world can be cruel and ugly and Kelli Randell made it a brighter more amazing place. I’ve never in my 44 years met someone who was so selfless, kind, accepting and genuine. Kelli you made such a positive impact on this world and on me and my family. You were there for us and supported us unconditionally through one of the hardest most trying times in our lives and for that, I am forever grateful. We love you, we miss you and because of you the world is a better place. My heart goes out to Danny and everyone who loves you so much and is feeling this loss. Rest in Peace beautiful.
I woke up to sad news this morning – my friend Randy aka Kelli Randell passed away. Kelli was the first drag queen I ever saw in person. I told her I loved her sweater and she said, “of course you do, bitch.” I was 19 and my dear friend had just come out to me. He wasn’t the first that year. Sebastian, Florida in the 90s was a hard place to be a gay teenager. These friends trusting me and including me as they spread their wings will forever be a highlight of my life. I saw so many young gay men relax as we watched Kelli perform. She was safety. So of course, I started bringing the next generation to see her perform. She was the first drag queen my daughters and many of their friends saw in person, too. Again, I saw boys from conservative families who were struggling with their truth relax in her presence. She was a safe space for me, too. During times I was barely keeping myself together I’d tuck away in the corner of the bar at Drago. Several different nights the bartender would put a shot in front of me and say, “That’s from Kelli.” They don’t even serve liquor there. Randy and his husband Danny took me out for drinks to celebrate my divorce. Randy answered my ringing phone and shouted, “She’s free! She never has to see that tiny dick again!” My caller hung up. I’ve invited everyone around to drag queen brunch or bingo because I wanted them to feel the magic of #KelliRandell and squad. Nicole and I recently scored dresses when Randy was cleaning out his drag closet. I will cherish my dress even more now. My heart hurts for his daughter Dominique Taylor and, of course, for his beloved Danny. Randy spent his life helping people in and out of drag. He served others in the healthcare field at his “boy job” and raised money endlessly in drag. His face lit up when he talked about the annual fashion show he hosted featuring (and benefiting) transgender kids. The world has lost some sparkle.
So honored to call Kelli Randell my friend. What an inspirational person you were and so much love to give to so many people. You brought love and laughter every where you went. I will always cherish the memories of you. My thoughts and prayers go to his husband Danny and (Randy) Kelli’s family. You will never be forgotten. Thanks for all the memories
