Iconic choreographer, @sonyatayeh setting the @moulinrougebway red carpet on fire in @alexandermcqueen Her work in the musical is jaw-dropping. Get your tickets to Moulin Rouge on Broadway now before you can’t get any because it’s so fiercely sold out. One of the best things I’ve ever experienced in theater.

June is my favorite month of the year. Because we get to celebrate my family - the incredible #lgbtq people who have welcomed me with open arms since I came out at 15 years old. Who made me comfortable with my flamboyance, my body, my personality and allowed me to own the totality of who I am as a human being. I’m so grateful to have found a community who stood by me for all of these years when I needed help, shelter, nurturing, fierceness and love. As you all know, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. We honor our ancestors who’ve paved the way for us to come this far. And look towards a brighter future in which we can all live equally. See you all at #worldpride2019 🌈 Photography and Shirt by @christopherleesauve Undies by @official2xist

Fun fact: When I was in my early 20's I wore a bow-tie every single day to work. Those who’ve known me for a while, know this to be true. I still love the feeling of tying one and putting on a tux. I feel like a billion bucks. Excited to bring these out again for the next week as we celebrate @tonyawards season and approach the 73rd Annual Tony Awards next Sunday. Stay tuned for our shenanigans. It's going to be a fun one. Shall we say, DRAMA! 🎭 ⠀

As you all may know, I grew up in a religious cult called #Branhamism My upbringing was daunting and very confusing on many levels. I decided to put this all into art and write a lot of songs to help me navigate my upbringing. Now, I’m scouting new downtown theaters for my theatrical piece @anewcitymusical about my life in the cult. This one is pretty epic. The Connelly Theater. It used to be an opera house and the molding is fierce! I’ll be releasing music from the piece soon. Can’t wait to share with you all. #newworks #livetheatre #cultlife

I love this photo. @matthewhollerphoto shot me at the @centralparknyc conservatory gardens soon after I’d had reconstructive brow and hand surgery after being run over by a drunk driver a few years back. I felt so vulnerable and defeated after not being able to use my hands, not being able to work, gaining weight and simply not being able to do things like I used to based on injuries, but I had to get out there again. Because that’s what you do. You get back up. And you keep going. You choose life. And this reminds me of that. Thank you, Matthew for making me feel good about myself and comfortable after such a daunting experience. I will never forget it. 💐
