Originally from New Orleans, this punk rocker grew up surrounded by music with musician parents. After years of struggling with his gender identity, Lenny began attending school as a boy - without anyone knowing - in middle school. A solid group of musician friends and an appreciation for music helped him through to achieve his high school diploma and after graduation he helped form the band RZA which opened for Iggy Pop and U2, among other rock bands. Now, Lenny works as an LGBT advocate and plays in the NYC-based band The Tenterhooks.
We’re honored to have Lenny join us to share his incredible story. The event will take place in the Regina Peruggi Room at 10:00am. We hope to see you there!
