PORTLAND, Ore. — Walter Cole was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. Except for his two years in the military for the Korean War, he’s never lived anywhere else. However, in his 91 years of life, he’s seen a lot.
“I'm a female impersonator, and my stage name is Darcelle XV,” Cole said.
He’s always loved theatre. In 1969, Cole discovered his “alter ego.”
