As the first comedian at Australia’s first gay nightclub and an original Les Girl, Kandy was an camp icon even by the early 60s. But Ken Johnson went on to own some of Sydney’s most significant camp/gay/lesbian night spots – the Garden of Eden in Enmore, Kandy’s Purple Onion Kensington, the Park Inn Woollahra and Ken’s Karate Klub Kensington.

Ken (Kandy) published his auto-biography in 2009 titled: “Kandy: What a Drag!”.
