Happy Birthday Tona!
Tona as you may or may not know has been a trans trailblazer in her own right as a classically trained singer and violinist based in the DMV area. ,She's founder of the AIDA Strings, and is the first out transperson to perform for a sitting US President (2011) and first out Black transperson at Carnegie Hall in June 2014.
During the DC visit I finally got the chance to do the Conversations With Tona Brown interview I've been promising her for two years, but could never make the timing work with our busy schedules until that moment..
Yeah, she deserves a TransGriot birthday shout out and much more, so taking the time to wish her a very happy blessings filled birthday and Happy New Year.
May 2017 bring even more success for this amazing woman and looking forward to the next time we're in the same area code.
