Abstract:

"Spend an evening getting intimate with Amanda Lepore, the internationally renowned walking work of art and New York City's reigning queen of nightlife for three decades. Paving the way for today's "trans revolution," Amanda is one of the world's most famous transsexuals. In this poignant and revealing memoir, Amanda takes off the makeup, peels back the silicone, and reveals to the world the woman she truly is, all with a sense of divine certainty, humor, and charm. 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 with to an icon. LaChapelle's ingenious photographs made Lepore an international art, music, and fashion star."--Publisher's description.
