Our Lady J is a classical pianist, television writer, and singer-songwriter. She is a writer and producer for the television series Transparent and Pose.[2][3]

Born in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania in 1978, Our Lady J attended Interlochen Center for the Arts from 1994 to 1996, majoring in piano during her junior and senior years of high school.[4] In 2000, she moved to New York City, where she freelanced as an accompanist.[5] In 2004, J became the musical director and accompanist for the Broadway performer Natalie Joy Johnson and came out as transgender.[6] She grew to popularity in 2013 when releasing her critically acclaimed first studio album, Picture of a Man.[7] Our Lady J has played piano at Carnegie Hall, American Ballet Theatre, and for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.[8]

In a November 2016 video for Tinder, Our Lady J said "My preferred gender is agender, no gender."[9] However in a September 2017 interview she said that was no longer accurate and she was now "gender nonconforming and gender fluid", but also a trans woman.[1]
