Jim Buff, AKA Electra, is mourning the loss of his husband, actor-singer Terry Cain, who passed away Monday after a critical illness.
Buff and Cain, a former manager at the old Madame’s drag supper club in Sunny Isles Beach, were featured exactly two years ago in a Miami Herald article I wrote, South Florida drag queens to hold court at Stonewall Summer Pride in Wilton Manors.
