RFE2022 • AMANDA LEPORE

RIVER QUEEN OFFICIAL LGBTQ2IA+ AFTER PARTY!
w/ HOST: MYA HICKS AND DJ JUNGLECAT
ELORA LEGION HALL • 11PM to LATE • SATURDAY, AUGUST 20
**THIS IS A SEPARATELY TICKETED EVENT! SEE TICKET PAGE FOR MORE INFO**

“The Most Expensive Body On Earth” - an effervescent fixture on the New York scene, Amanda Lepore has been at the cutting edge of culture since the club kid era, breaking and re-making the rules for music, marketing, and gender.  An international trans icon, Amanda has done everything from being the muse for world famous photographer David LaChapelle, to having a limited edition doll of her created by Andrew Wu. Her obsessive dabblings in rhinoplasty, liquid silicone injections, eyelifts, and breast implants are calculated to make her the world’s most beautiful lab experiment—an iconic presence that artists from Elton John to The Drums to Tiga to The Dandy Warhols to Cazwell, have used to enhance their videos. Simply put, Amanda Lepore is a legend. 

Her debut album, "I…Amanda Lepore," is the culmination of her long reign as the queen of Gotham’s button pushing (and button popping) carnival, cementing her status as the most prevalent risk taking creative artist and good-time gal after dark. Some of Amanda’s hits include “My Hair Looks Fierce”, “Cotton Candy” and “I Know What Boys Like”. On stage, she is a sort of woozy inflatable doll. Amanda comes off like a Jeff Koons statue of Marilyn Monroe, a walking work in progress whose nonstop array of surgeries have made her a unique comment on womanhood, and every inch a dame.
