Tony began cross-dressing when he was nine years old. Twenty years later, Toni took the courageous step that only a small fraction of transgendered people take: she had sexual reassignment surgery to match her body to her mind. In between those two milestones, Toni lead a fascinating life as a lesbian, police officer, and detective.
Toni’s journey began as the son of an Evangelical Christian family and continues today as a woman, a lesbian with a longtime life partner, and a successful law enforcement officer. Along the way, she conquered some of life’s most difficult challenges. She persevered through bullying, estrangement from some of her family, loneliness, hatred, exploitation, bigotry, and ridicule.
The book chronicles her turbulent journey from being born a male to becoming the female she knew she was inside. The book also explores the behind-the scenes aspects of the process of transitioning from one gender to the other.
It’s A Girl, Finally, is Toni’s exquisitely honest story. It tells her innermost thoughts and feelings about coming to grips with the fact that she was the exact opposite of who she appeared to the rest of the world to be, and then going under the scalpel to change it.
This is a story of hope, courage, and triumph for all of us.
