It’s Tona’s Birthday!

Today is Tona Brown’s birthday, and had to give my little sis a TransGriot birthday shoutout after the amazing history making year she had

She made her lifelong dream of performing on the Carnegie Hall stage come to life on June 25 with her well received ‘From Stonewall To Carnegie Hall’ concert that made her the first out African-American trans woman to perform there.

I’ve known, talked to and been aware of my classically trained musician sis for years now, and it was one of the highlights of the 2014 LGBT Media Journalists Convening in DC when I finally got to meet her.

As to what Tona has in store for us in 2015?   That’s a good question.  But I know I’m looking forward to watching it unfold and happen.

Happy birthday Tona!  May you be blessed with many more.
