Thank You Atlanta For Making #BBoyBlues The Play A Huge Success! @JamesEarlHardy

On behalf of the illustrious cast, talented crew, dynamic director Stanley Bennett Clay and prolific director, James Earl Hardy I must extend a heartfelt thanks to Atlanta for your support of B-Boy Blues The Play!

Two sold out performances of enthusiastic, cross generational audiences really shows just how connected, engaged, powerful and beautiful our community truly are.  Thank you Atlanta!

Here are a few images from the evening, including the after party.  More pics to follow soon.


#BBoyBlues The Play Comes To ATL 8/2 @3LWTV Hosts! Get Your Tickets Today! @JamesEarlHardy

I'm so excited about this production!  For those of you unfamiliar, B-Boy Blues The Play is based on the B-Boy Blues novel by James Earl Hardy.  This book changed my life!  It was the very first time I'd seen anything in print which truly reflected MY world.  Everything I'd seen up to that point told me that who I was was wrong, an abomination and other 'fuckery.'  As an African-American, same gender loving male, B-Boy Blues taught me not only was I not alone, but that despite what ignorance prevailed amongst the masses,  my love was deep, emotional, passionate and beautiful! There was and IS nothing wrong or different about it.  LOVE IS LOVE.

On August 2, 2014 the stage play adaptation of B-Boy hits the stage at Atlanta's Balzer Theater @ Herren's.  I can't wait!  There will be a Q&A session with the cast immediately following the show, hosted by yours truly! The buzz surrounding the show continues to heighten and I'm excited to for you to experience it.  There are several ways you can support the production.  Every dollar counts.  Our stories only gain momentum when we SUPPORT them.  All forms of encouragement are appreciated, but a dollar goes further than a like on Facebook....IJS. 

Author James Earl Hardy and I have been "jood" (read the book for that definition) friends for decades.  I remain proud of his groundbreaking accomplishments.  His wisdom, laughter and joy continue to enrich my journey.  B-Boy Blues the Play has something for everyone...FOR REAL. 

Thank you all for your continued love and support.  I can't wait to see you in August in ATL!!




Trans Violinist @Tonacity To Make History Live At Carnige Hall...Get Your Tickets Today!


NEW YORK CITY, NY--History is about to be made at New York City's world-famous Carnegie Hall, as an accomplished violinist and vocalist, Tona Brown, becomes the first African-American transgender woman to perform at the storied Weill Recital Hall at 7:30 PM, on Wednesday, June 25, during LGBT Pride Week.  Ms. Brown, whose notable achievements include singing the National Anthem for President Barack Obama, as La Principessa in the opera Suor Angelica, and her upcoming role as Delia in the new Netflix series City Lightz, will headline a truly unforgettable evening as part of the many celebrations of LGBT Pride in New York City.  "I'm privileged and thrilled to have the opportunity to make history on the Carnegie Hall stage," says Ms. Brown, "This is the high point of my career." 

Ms. Brown studied under such greats as Isaac Stern (for whom Carnegie Hall's main auditorium is named), played with the Shenandoah Conservatory, and recorded This Is Who I Am, a compendium of selections by African-American composers. She can be heard accompanying chart-topping, out R&B vocalist Nhojj, on his new album, Made To Love Him,and recently appeared as La Principessa in the opera Suor Angelica. Ms. Brown's stellar performances have also enthralled audiences the world over, with her matchless delivery of song and music, and at Carnegie Hall, Tona will perform classical and contemporary selections, including works by African-American composers, including Deep Riverand Dream Variations.

Tickets are $35, $55, and $70, available May 22 at

.@theInsider features @OWNAmbassadors , @3LWTV in their @Oprah Birthday Shout Outs! Watch video!

Yesterday, my Twitter bud Oprah Winfrey celebrated her 60th birthday!  I lost count long ago of the requests I received to be my "plus 1" to her highly anticipated birthday blowout.   I'm not sure where folk got this erroneous information, but it was flattering to say the least.  I'm thrilled that Ms. Winfrey spent her birthday, HER WAY!  She wanted a quaint day of quiet reflection at home and that's exactly what she got.

It's an honor to watch people share accolades from near and far.  The global scope of her integrity, inspiration and passion never cease to amaze!  It comes as no surprise that she is on the world's radar.  It is an honor for me to be on hers.

Take a look at the Oprah birthday shout outs featured on yesterday's The Insider HERE.
