1949 �" 2010

Keith (Kitty) Miller, 61, a longtime Castro resident, passed away August 29, 2010 surrounded by friends.

Kitty will long be remembered for the incredible talent of taking ordinary household items and transforming them into fabulous outfits to the delight of all.

The many friends left behind will miss his sharp wit, generosity with baked goods, and love of a life well lived. His strength and determination are inspirational.

Keith grew up in a small rural community in New South Wales, Australia, where he was teased as a boy for his theatrical antics and love of dance. After escaping to Sydney for a few years, he moved to New York in the early 1970s, where he worked for the Australian consulate and enjoyed the Big Apple's theatre life. He moved to San Francisco in the late 1970s and made the Castro neighborhood his home.

Keith worked at many of San Francisco's gay establishments, including Sutter's Mill, Lupann's, Ginger's Trois, and Truck. He treasured his appearance onstage with compatriot Dame Edna in San Francisco's Curran Theatre in 2007.

He is survived by sister Jill, and cousin Carol, both living in Australia.

A celebration of Keith's life will be held in San Francisco on September 25.
