Amanda Lepore Young

Amanda born and grew up in the Essex County community of Cedar Grove, New Jersey.  She is the daughter of a father who was an Italian-American chemical engineer, and a mother who was a German-American housewife. Amanda’s mother had schizophrenia and spent much time in mental institutions.  She has one sibling, an elder brother.

Amanda later wrote: “Ever since I can first remember, I knew I was a girl. I couldn’t understand why my parents were dressing me up in boys’ clothing. I thought they were insane.”  During her early teens, Amanda began making costumes for a transgender friend in exchange for female hormones.

She was already isolated from her peers. During this time, her parents withdrew her from public school and hired a private tutor. Her parents took her to a psychologist, who helped her obtain a prescription to begin hormone therapy.

When Amanda was 17 years old, and through a legal loophole, she married a male bookstore owner. Later she was granted permission for sex reassignment surgery, which she had at age 19 in Yonkers, New York. Later  Amanda left her husband; in 1989, she relocated to New York City.

In the early 1990s, she tried to establish herself as a nightlife figure this includes being a member in the Club Kids. Amanda supported herself by working in a nail salon, as a dominatrix,  and later as a cosmetics salesgirl for Patricia Field. After meeting photographer David LaChapelle one evening while hosting at Bowery Bar, she began collaborating with him.

Amanda Lepore Club Kid

Amanda was a member of Club Kids. Because of her association with the Club Kids, she had a cameo in the documentary Party Monster: The Shockumentary (1998) and the feature film Party Monster (2003).

Amanda Lepore Kanye

There were citing a rumor that began after the release of Amanda’s memoir, Doll Parts. It’s an anecdote about a rapper she had sex with at a San Francisco hotel before he married someone with “a similar body type to me.”

That sparked a rumor around this time in 2017 that Kanye West is the rapper referred to in the book. And seeing as how Scott has worked with West and is the father of Kylie Jenner’s baby, it’s not a totally ridiculous theory.

“Kanye is behind Amanda’s removal from the cover,” a source to Page Six. “These things are related.”

However, another source told the same Page Six when the rumor originally surfaced that it’s not true: “That is not within the realm of possibility.” But given West’s recently blossoming friendship with Donald Trump, infidelity and transphobia seem totally within the realm of possibility.
