Kevin Lee has an overflowing business card. Well, he would.
He is a personal trainer, dating back to 2008and still has the first receipt transaction for his training services. "I'm very proud of my training persona and take it very seriously. I'm a professional and love helping people reach their goals," he said.
Lee also is a gay entertainer, who started as an Internet personality, turned club performer, turned Titan Men Media Entertainer.
"I started off doing go-go dancing in the city," he said. "I wanted to travel though and hit up the clubs [outside of Chicago]. I used my marketing skills and campaigned for a tour, and it worked."
He then started working with Titan Men, so he could travel even moreand also earn more money. He has two scenes with Titan, both Grabby Award-nominated.
"I started out in 2010 making a name for myself, [and] 2012 is when things started to take off," he said.
Lee's sidekick on the entertainment side is Lambya stuffed animal.
"Lamby says things that I won't say," Lee said with a smile. "I'm very polite and down to earth. Lamby, on the other hand, holds nothing back, but he is so cute that you can't help but to laugh."
Lee said working in the entertainment industry "is a fantasy; it's not real."
"When I saw the movie 'In Old Chicago' back in 2010, I wanted to be just like the stage woman. I wanted to be adored and in the light," he said. "Most club entertainers do what they do to escape reality, to feel a fantasy and to give the customers a few hours of entertainment so they can escape their own reality."
Lee said he aspires to have his own personal training studio one day.
"I've done many charity events, fundraisers, etc.," for the gay community, he said. "If I can help, I will be there. Outside the gay community, I've raised money for the Lincoln Park Zoo. It's the last free zoo in North America, and to know that I can help schools take kids there for educational field trips is awesome."
Lee has, admittedly, battled with substance abuseand offered thanks to the South Suburban Council for its aid.
"I have been fortunate recently to be able to get help for it. The rehabs I have been to have been really great and it's helped tremendously," he said.
