Each week we bring you a timeless gay Icon. It’s one of our most fun pieces, and while it is hard to top gay icons such as “Jill Biden’s Stripper Boots” and “Bindi Irwin,” way may have just done it this week with AMANDA LEPORE.Lepore will be headlining BYT & Capital Pride Present: WildLife this Friday at the Howard Theatre. She is an international sensation, muse, and bad ass motherf**ker.
She is timeless. According to her biography, Amanda Lepore transformed herself from an “ordinary New Jersey tranny housewife” into a celebutant of New York City. Of course, no one knows when this happend or how old she is. A girl never tells – and no one knows. She could be 22. She could be 116. It’s any ones guess.
She pisses pink paint for David LaChappelle. Avant-garde celebrity photographer David LaChappelle returns to photograph Amanda Lepore time-after-time. Sure, he can (and does) photograph Lady Gaga, Elton John, Diddy, Katy Perry, Cher, and Lil Kim, but he returns to Lepore.
She is a model. Frequently seen walking the runway of New York Fashion Week.
She is an actress. Just check out this MAC cosmetic piece. Legendary. Outstanding.
She is a triple threat. Just shut the f**k up, already and get on board.
BONUS: Swatch made a Swatch watch with her face and called it “Tranny Time”. CORRECTION: Swatch made TWO watches with her face on it.
Think up your craziest wildlife fantasies, because it’s gonna be like this:
