The Transgender National Alliance Gala-Petite Is A Success

The first ever Transgender National Alliance Gala-Petite on Friday night was an amazing sold out event at Blue By Massa's downtown in which the Houston trans community and our allies got glammed up to raise money for TNA and have a wonderful time.  

And yeah, a certain blogger y'all know was in the house as well.

The theme for this inaugural TNA Gala was Metro Glam, and folks in attendance were dressed in the style of rock meets Grammy purple carpet in this case.  We also sat down to a delicious meal as Vancie Vega handled her business and did an amazing job as our Mistress of Ceremonies.

We were also blessed to have at this initial TNA gala the lovely Durga McBroom serenading us with her lovely and powerful voice.

In addition, the inaugural TNA Be Amazing Award was given to TransTech founding CEO Angelica Ross, who has had a wonderful 2015 with her upcoming star turn in the web series Her Story and hope 2016 is even more exciting for her.

In addition, there was a silent auction and door prizes to raise money for TNA's work as a nonpartisan non-profit organization that seeks to recognize, celebrate and employ the diversity of the transgender community while providing funding, outreach education and support for the issues affecting our community and our allies.

Was nice seeing everyone there including our friend Lauryn Farris from San Antonio and her daughter Izzy.   Looking forward to seeing what transpires for this wildly successful TNA event and what they will pull off in 2016.
