Kevin D. Donahugh and I meet at a social event for the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence of New Orleans. I remember his as a kind, respectfully man who gave so much to the LGBT community of New Orleans. On March 13, 2017 he passed away from bone cancer. The Sister's and the community came out at Mag's to remember his life and celebrate him as an amazing person. In true Southern fashion, we celebrated with a second line.
Kevin was a well-known member of the LGBT community; both as an entertainer (Cathy Fox) and a member of the Big Easy Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. He served as a board member of New Orleans Pride, and served as Grand Marshall in 2010. He was also a member of the Lords of Leather, and represented the Krewe as Miss Louisiana Pride in 2010. He was the founder of the Big Easy Sisters, Chapter of the Muddy Waters, Sisters of perpetual Indulgence, and would serve as Abbess.
His work in the LGBT community in New Orleans is without question. He worked to increase awareness of HIV/AIDS, safer sex, for the growth of New Orleans Pride, and preservation of gay culture. Kevin will be deeply and sorely missed; however, he leaves behind a legacy that will not be forgotten.
