Amanda Lapore was born a son of a German-American mother, who was a housewife schizophrenic and spent most of the time in mental hospitals, and an Italian-American father, a chemical engineer. She has an elder brother, but was profoundly isolated from her peers in high school, so her parents decided to send Amanda to a private school and took her to a psychiatrist to obtain a prescription for a Hormone Replacement Therapy – she made costumes for her transgender friend in exchange for hormones during her teen days.

Amanda had sex reassignment surgery when she was 19-years-old, in Yonkers, New York City, and moved to the NYC in 1989. Lapore worked in a nail salon in the early ‘90s, and as a cosmetics salesgirl for Patricia Field during the daytime, but was also known as a nightlife figure.

Lepore also had cameos in numerous music videos for famous artists such as The Dandy Warhols, Elton John, Girl in a Coma, Thalía, Keanan Duffty, Grace Jones, TIGA, and The Drums. In 2010, Amanda was a Chief of Parade at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Lepore started her music career with a single “Deeper” in 2003, and then released her debut album “Introducing… Amanda Lepore” in 2005.
