Toni Newman-'I'm accountable only to God' June 11, 2021
Toni Newman grew up in a strict, southern Christian household. But when Toni came out as a gay man in college, family and church relationships were strained. And then, Toni came to realize she was really a transgender woman, not gay. She says she lost her friends in the gay community and felt the whole world turn away: "Not only did I lose my natural family, my church family, I lost my gay family."
