Lendale has gained global attention last summer after his involvment with the BLM movement while filming his new show “Deuces And Love.”

To share his story, Attitude Magazine offered Lendale a 5 page feature in their globally printed magazine and has included him in their 101 most influential LGBTQ people in the world for their upcoming issues.

Lendale shot for the iconic magazine in a even more iconic location, The U.S. Open Tennis Championships. Johnson also landed a $100,000 partnership with “Break The Love” CEO Goyal and hosted their 1st ever tournament in Miami during the pandemic. The tennis player will star in a global HuLu commercial for beauty, cosmetic, footwear, & handbag brand “TradeALT.”
