J’son M. Lee, though born in Brooklyn, NY, is essentially a North Carolinian. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill earning a degree in Speech Communication with a concentration in Performance Studies. Lee is 42 years old and resides in Baltimore, MD. He works for a prominent real estate firm in our nation’s capital. Lee is the author of Just Tryin’ To Be Loved, Best Friends (short story) and co-authored the multiple award-winning book, How could my husband be GAY?, with Ondrea L. Davis.
In addition to books, Lee wrote, produced and starred in his own one-man show entitled One Family’s AIDS. This one-man show, told from four different perspectives, is the story of Gene Alexander McCoy – a young, educated African-American man who finds himself in a race for time to make peace with his family and with God upon being diagnosed with HIV. The play chronicles Gene’s life as he confronts such issues as HIV/AIDS, family, abandonment and homophobia. With the help of his over-bearing mother, a nurturing grandmother, and an uncle who doesn’t really feel comfortable talking about Gene’s sexuality or disease, we learn the complexities of love and relationships, the damaging results of fear and shame, and how the relentless quest for the truth ultimately leads us back to each other.
