LeBron Keener is an openly gay singer songwriter from the mountains of Southeast Tennessee. He was born on April 11, 1980, to parents Marvin and June Keener. He began singing at age three. LeBron's lyrics reflect his own personal experiences with life. "I heard the terms "fag" and "queer" so much, that I soon began to keep to myself. I wondered what would happen if someone found me out. I remember laying in bed asking God to take away the pain of being "different," crying at times," he stated in his testimonial, "At age 23, I finally came out to family. It wasn't the best experience ever, but I don't think it was the worst." Presently, he is openly gay in his writing and his music. He advocates against hate and bullying. "I was bullied," he stated, "People don't see the scars they leave on people's hearts. The only one that knows those scars are there is you, and they never go away."
