Leigh Bowery (1961-1994) an Australian performance artist, club promoter, actor, pop star, model and fashion designer, based in London. His life is memorialized in the Boy George musical Taboo (which takes its name from Lee’s first London club night) and in the documentary film “The Legend Of Leigh Bowery.” His short life managed to create a style quake whose ripples are still felt today, from Lady Gaga to Nicki Minaj and beyond.
