Pepper LeBeija

Pepper LeBeija became a star after he was featured in the 1990 documentary Paris Is Burning. Pepper's background is in the Black and Latino ballroom scene (mother of the House of LeBeija), a subculture known for family, fashion and voguing — made famous years before Madonna. In 2003, Pepper passed away at 53 years old, but he is known as an "icon" in the ballroom circuit and beyond.
