Francis, born Francisco García Escalante, (April 6, 1958 – October 10, 2007) was a Mexican transvestite who was a famous actor and designer. Francis' birth name is Francisco, but she was better known plainly as Francis. It is unclear whether she actually had a sex change operation. In a sketch from the Mexican show, "Desde Gayola", she clearly states that rather than getting a sex change to cut "it" off, she prefers to enlarge "it," because it has become more popular for women to have a penis.
Born in in Campeche, Campeche, Mexico, Francis gained attention first as a vedette, participating at various clubs and theaters, with a transvestites' ballet. A Los Angeles theater, located in South Gate, California and named "Teatro Los Pinos", was without a doubt a home to the actor during the tour of her shows. She died due to a lung thrombosis in a Mexico City hospital on October 10, 2007. She was 49 years old. Francis was an actor, singer, dancer and phonomimic.
In her theater or T.V. shows, Francis imitated famous Latin female singers such as Colombian Shakira, Spaniard Rocío Durcal and Mexicans Gloria Trevi, Alejandra Guzman, and Lupita D'Alessio.
Long-time friend and designer, Mitzi, credits Francis with helping him in time of need and helping to start his design empire.
