We could’t be more excited to share the news that one of our favorite people IN THE WORLD, Amanda Lepore, has a new memoir out next week. It’s called Doll Parts, it’s published by Reagan books, and it’s absolutely brilliant. I read it over the weekend, and was blown away by her brutal honesty, her indefatigable spirit, and her uncompromising zest for living. A must-read for anybody who’s ever seen her pic and wondered about the REAL story behind the platinum hair and ruby lips.
“If you happen to be young and transgender, then you’re used to people being hateful toward you when all you want to do is exist. Through all the insanity in my life, there was only one thing I could control: myself. On the outside, obviously, but on the inside, too. I focused on not letting other people’s opinions have any effect on me whatsoever, and that’s how I’ve lived my life ever since.” —Amanda Lepore
