Cameron Stiehl was born in Passaic, New Jersey and lived in many locations throughout the East Coast before sky high adventures called her mother to move them to Albuquerque, New Mexico, the hot air balloon capital of the world. There she found a desert home.

Throughout high school, Cameron was heavily involved in the theater department, participating in nearly every major production, and working her way up to President of the local chapter of the International Thespian Society. It was through work in the theater that she first encountered peers who were openly gay. It did not take long for the self-realization to hit, the family bonds to grow strong, and Cameron to come out to friends and family as bisexual. While the personal support system was firmly in place, society in the 80s was not as kind. Before long, Cameron was fighting alongside her LGBT brothers and sisters resisting unfair treatment, bullying, and unwarranted raids of queer spaces by law enforcement. Raised by a family of strong, bra-burning women’s liberation fighters of the 1960’s, a new activist was born.

Cameron attended the University of New Mexico, first majoring in Theatre Arts and finally achieving a Master of Arts degree in Secondary Education. She taught high school for five years before moving to San Francisco where she has returned to acting, filmmaking, and social activism.

By day, Cameron is an ergonomic evaluation specialist and the mother of Corin, now 14, a beautiful little boy with Fragile X Syndrome/Autism. She has appeared in a number of short films, web series, television commercials, and independent feature films. Her alter-ego, Raven Madd Munro, of drag empire La Maison de Munro, comes out for occasional live performances. She is also the creator, executive producer, and host of Happy Hour with Cameron Stiehl, a web-based documentary series highlighting interviews with the LGBT community. She also works with the I’m From Driftwood LBGT Story Archive, capturing LGBT stories for that New York-based project in San Francisco. 

Cameron currently serves on the Board of the Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation (REAF) and is incredibly proud and honored to begin new roles as the Imperial Crown Princess of San Francisco and on the International Court Council.
