American transsexual, she was born a man but felt like a woman from her young years. She served in the US Marine Corps in the early 1990s and is a veteran of the Desert Storm initiative under President George H. W. Bush. She is a decorated war veteran and was honorably discharged after four years of service.

She met Barry Winchell, a soldier, when he saw her perform on stage in early 1999, and they fell in love. On July 6, 1999, Winchell was brutally murdered in a homophobic attack by other soldiers.. Addams' life and the Winchell murder were the subject of a movie, "Soldier's Girl." Addams has since become a spokesperson and activist for the transgender cause.

An entertainer from the time she was young, she played Bluegrass fiddle in Church. As she grew older, she took up writing and acting and became a showgirl. She has been seen on film in several documentaries.
