Description

Black gay men must be seen, heard, affirmed and respected. Lee Perry has worked for years to help accomplish that -- from serving on the board of the Greater Dayton LGBT Center, helping plan the annual Pride parade, and now starting a new group called Identify for gay black men. Along the way he also earned notoriety for his drag persona Leigh Montgomery. At almost 60 years old, he's going stronger than ever and has a few things to say.
