Lilo Wanders (1955 - ) travestiekünstler.

Ernst-Johann Reinhardt was born in Celle, Lower Saxony.


He became involved with gay theatre at Breman University. He was one of the founders of the famous Schmidt-Theater in Hamburg in 1988. There he developed the persona of Lilo Wanders.

Lilo had a successful program on VOX television from 1994-2004, Wa(h)re Liebe (an equivocation between true love/commercial love) where she hosted segments on all aspects of sex. She has appeared in theatre and in 10 cinema films.

She proclaims herself as gay, but has a wife, two children and a foster child, although for a while she and her wife lived in a threesome with a man.

Although I'm a straight man, I found Lilo Wanders to be a very professional TV figure. The Wa(h)re Liebe show was extremely interesting and also very humorous too. I wish her/his..LOL show could have been aired on USA television. But I had the privilege to live in Germany for 13 years and when ever I got the opportunity to see this show, I would always tune in. Lilo Rocks!!!!
