Jennifer North (1953 – 1989) pageant winner

Steven Renner from Texas moved to St Louis and became a transgender performer as Bobbie Holliday, and winner of many gay pageant titles.

Bobbie was Miss Gay Missouri 1978 and Miss Gay Arkansas 1981, and also Miss St Louis, Miss Tri-State, and was chosen a top ten finalist at Miss Gay America numerous times.

She then moved to Atlanta, had gender surgery, and changed her legal name to Jennifer North.

She died of complications from Aids.

*Not Jennifer North in Valley of the Dolls.


It is rather insentive of LGBT St Louis to put the Find-a-Grave entry under her boy name rather than either her legal name or her professional name.

  1. Way too young to die. One of many, sadly, who succumbed to AIDS.
