Overview

A gorgeous, poignant, memoir from the original iconic transsexual who has reigned over New York nightlife for three decades.

Amanda Lepore is a walking piece of art and her very existence explores some of the most salient issues of our time-grappling with gender identity, examining femininity, and what it means to be a woman. Born as a boy to a paranoid schizophrenic mother, Lepore always knew that she was a girl. When she discovered that she could make her body match her sense of self, it was a revelation.

After transitioning at age seventeen, Lepore shed her troubled youth, escaped an abusive marriage, and recreated herself in the image of old Hollywood-glamour. She worked as a dominatrix, performed at the Limelight, and had a close friendship with her one-time boss “Party Monster” Michael Alig. But, it was when pop culture visionary David LaChapelle walked into her life that she again transitioned, this time from a beautiful nightlife denizen to an icon. LaChapelle’s ingenious photographs made Lepore an international art, music, and fashion star.

Amanda Lepore has spent years becoming the woman she wanted to be, and now in her surprising and revealing memoir, she takes off the makeup, peels back the silicone, and reveals to the world the woman she really is-her heartbreak, her desires, and of course, her beauty secrets.

“I hate everyone but Amanda Lepore.”
-Miley Cyrus

“As an Icon, Amanda is one of a kind because of her unique and singular look in the art of fashion. She has established herself as the most original and glamorous image in the world of transgender.”
-Patricia Field

“Amanda is truly a living work of art. I’ve never witnessed such devotion to the art of high-glamour. In my book, she is a glambassador of the very highest order, a true fascinatrix!”
-Dita Von Teese
