Transgender Author Toni Newman Opposes Dr. Keith Albow position That Transgenderism is Similar to Heroin Addiction


article image

Dr. Keith Albow has described Transgenderism to being addicted to heroin or being a drug addict.  I recently met Transgender Author Toni Newman who just recently wrote a memoir called I Rise-The Transformation of Toni Newman. Her book talks about a 20 year journey of transforming from male to female.  Toni Newman is the first African American Transgender to write a memoir in the United States.

I Rise, is the true story of Toni Newman's transformation from an effeminate, conflicted male to a proud, educated transsexual. You will follow Toni on her rise from a "sissy boy," a scholarship student, a business professional, an escort, a drag queen, a NYC prostitute, an LA dominatrix, and finally, a transsexual attending law school in order to help her transsexual sisters in need. Along Toni's journey you will see the highs and lows, as well as life-long quest for self-acceptance".

Toni addresses the comment of transgenderism as being addicted to heroin by saying "I lived on  the streets as homeless person of New York City for two years and I have lived with drug addicted people in a crack hotel and from time to time I ate from restaurant trash cans, but not once did I partake in any type of drugs or become addicted to heroin or any type of drugs.  I had no support from family or friends during my initial transformation which left me in a really bad situation.  I lived in a drug environment for two years and I never became a drug addict. 
My focus was transforming from male to female and being true to myself.  I can assure you kids reading a transgender book or watching a transgender on television will not desire to change to the opposite sex.  Transforming comes from deep deep within and one does not take that journey unless they are convinced within that they were born in the wrong body.  It took me almost ten years of soul searching after graduating from Wake Forest University to begin my personal transformation from male to female.  I know heroin addicts and I can assure you being transgender is not like a heroin addict."

Dr. John Oldham, M.D. (President, American Psychiatric Association) wrote:  "The American Psychiatric Association (APA) recognizes gender identity disorder (GID) as a psychiatric disorder that involves significant distress or impairment in functioning.  The APA supports access to appropriate diagnosis and treatment for persons with GID and recognizes that the decision to undergo gender transition is a deeply personal one.  The APA opposes all forms of discrimination against persons with GID.  There is no evidence that viewing a television show with a transgender contestant or reading a book by a transgender would induce Gender Identity Disorder in young people."

We are all just trying to be true to ourselves no matter who we are straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. Toni can be found on myspace, twitter and facebook at tonidnewman. Her webpage is www.tonidnewman.com  

Did LL Cool J Pay a Tranny for Sex?


The Ladies might Love Cool James, but does LL Cool J love them back?

No, according to Toni Newman, a former transsexual prostitute who writes in a new book, excerpted in the latest issue of Hip Hop Weekly, that the rapper/NCIS: Los Angeles star was once his client!

Is LL Cool J Gay?

"I had sex with LL Cool J," Newman claims in his memoir. "For a street prostitute doing fifty-dollar blow jobs and hundred dollar hotel dates, he gave me five times more that I had already made... I wasn't aware until we got into the encounter and the glasses came off that he was in fact LL Cool J. We were a versatile group, and when I say versatile, that means the other person gives and receives."

We wonder how LL will respond to this allegation. If he takes the advice of his Mama, Newman will soon be knocked out.

Whoa! Transsexual "Memoirist" Claims To Having An Affair With LL Cool J!


If you haven't gotten your latest copy of Hip Hop Weekly in the mail yet, you're missing their biggest story to date. The mag has an exclusive interview with one Miz Toni Newman, who until recently, worked NYC's "Tranny Row" for years, but now considers herself a "memoirist." She has a new book out that documents her time as a prostitute and within the pages, she details the, um, services she provided to some of her more profitable clients…like LL!

In her interview, she revealed:

"I had sex with LL Cool J. At that point, he had been one of the top five dates I ever had. I made over five-hundred dollars. For a street prostitute doing fifty-dollar blow jobs and hundred dollar hotel dates, he gave me five times more that I had already made…I wasn't aware until we got into the encounter and the glasses came off that he was in fact LL Cool J. We were a versatile group, and when I say versatile, that means the other person gives and receives."

Share, share! That's fair! LOLZ!

We find this really hard to believe, considering the source and the subject, but we have to admit, stranger things have happened.

No doubt LL will have something to say about this. Just chose your words carefully!

Do U think LL was involved in something this scandalous???

Ex PlayGirl magazine model and male fitness model turned transgender author Toni Newman called into the TT Torrez show to chit chat with TT about the hardships of transforming from a southern boy to a woman, his book I Rise and whether or not she slept with LL Cool J.

Check it out:


On his book I Rise:

The book is about his 25-year journey from going from a southern North Carolina boy to a full fledge transgender in 2011. It took him 25 years to transform himself from a male to a female.

The book will be in stores on June 1st but you can get the e-book on Amazon.com.

On his background:

He was born in the south in Jacksonville, North Carolina. He realized at the age of 8 that something was different about him and he would be called a “sissy boy” by family members.

He said he had his first sexual experience with another male in high school.  He didn’t immediately come out because he was bought up as a Christian and his family wouldn’t have accepted that. He didn’t come out until he went off to college.

On his previous success:

He was an ex-play girl magazine model. He said he wasn’t sure if he wanted to transform and become transgendered because back then after doing research he found that many transgenders didn’t have a real job and was prostituting.

He decided to go against how he was feeling and started bodybuilding but he would still “drag” at night.

On transitioning into a woman:

7 years after he graduated from college he became a full-fledged drag queen. He “dragged” for 4 years. Then in 97-98 he began taking hormonal pills and getting “pumped” with silicone in his chest, face and buttocks. In 99-2000 he went full-fledged transgender (meaning going out in the daytime). He said he resembles a woman and doesn’t deny he was born a man.  At this point, he has not had his penis removed and doesn’t plan on it.

On having an encounter with a woman:

Toni said she tried to have sex with a female one drunken night but she “never got up.”

On “his fall from grace”:

Toni has a degree from Wake Forest University; she was the CEO of MPI Productions, and producer of male/female fitness calendars. She began accepting money from people to see her body (as a male body builder) and that’s the beginning stages leading her into prostitution.

On if he slept with LL Cool J:

Toni said she DID sleep with LL Cool J as a street prostitute one time. She said LL was one of hundreds during that time. She said there are so many other names but she doesn’t name them in his book. She said LL was a ONE time encounter.

Toni signed a contract with The National Enquirer and took a lie detector test to prove that she did have sex with LL. Later, The National Enquirer contacted Toni and said they were not going to run the story and she was released from his contract. She said she has taken another polygraph with another magazine with the same 9 questions.

On Eddie Murphy, DJ Mister Cee and rappers:

Toni said Eddie Murphy was caught with a transgendered prostitute. She said she’s never had an encounter with Eddie Murphy but she knows at least 5-10 transgenders who has been with him, some more then once.

Toni said DJ Mister Cee was caught two times previously before his latest arrest with a transgender. She said this is his 3rd arrest for picking up a transgendered prostitute. She said she has many encounters with Mister Cee on more then 10 occasions. No sex, just oral. She said he will treat you well financially and will give you an extra $20-$40 if he enjoyed it.

She admits to having sex with rappers as well and will take a polygraph test to prove it verses just going around saying she slept with this person and that person.

On the transgendered community dealing with downlow men:

Toni said she has always used condoms but a lot of these downlow men want it “raw and bare” and will pay that extra money to get it. Toni said these men get down and then go back to their girlfriends and wives.

Toni said that there are many trangenders who DON’T have a job, so how are these people surviving if no one is supporting them? You don’t see them in professional settings and in your Starbucks, so how are they surviving?

On why she hasn’t named any names in her book:

At the beginning she said she was going to name names but she got up to 38 names. Toni’s editor said she shouldn’t out anyone because it would get her into a world of trouble.

On celebs being bisexual:

Toni said there are many men on the downlow who are celebrities, politicians, etc. She said these men would not consider themselves bisexual or gay because “she” has breast. She said that they are blindsided by the glitz and glamour. She said if it’s happening and these transgenders have proof, then why should they have to keep quiet about it?

On if all the men she’s slept with knew she was born a man, including LL Cool J:
She said when she is naked she has male genitalia between her legs. Whether she tells them or not, it’s a little hard to hide so they know!

LL Cool J Rep Denies Transexual Encounter


The Internet went crazy today (May 6) when a transexual named Toni Newman, claimed that she had sex with rap legend LL Cool J. [Listen above] The hip-hop veteran’s manager, Claudine Joseph, vehemently denied the accusations to XXLMag.com, calling them “pure comedy.”

Newman recently appeared on Santillian and the Wild Out Wake-Up Show on 102-Jamz in Greensboro, North Carolina. During the 15-minute interview, Newman, a woman that was born a man, said that she had sexual relations with Cool J.

“I was a street prostitute and LL picked me up, back as a street prostitute walking the block what we called trannie now,” she alleged. “There were lots of trannies walking that block, late at night back in the days. That’s how we all made our money….that was in the late ’90s, so about 13 years ago.”

Newman went on to say that LL was aware that she was a man, and they had sex. She claimed the former Def Jam MC paid her $500.

Along with Cool J, Newman writes about her experiences with several other famous figures like Hot 97 DJ, Mister Cee (who was recently arrested for indecent exposure with a drag queen in New York City), Eddie Murphy and others. Her book, I Rise: The Transformation of Toni Newman, is currently on stands. —Elan Mancini

3.0 out of 5 stars Repriced appropriately. Short, but good reading, May 5, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

After being the first to write a review questioning the $45.00 price tag that originally accompanied this book, I felt almost compelled to purchase it the moment I noticed the author seemingly had heeded my advice (and that of all the "seconds" by other interested folks) and repriced it at my suggested purchase point of $9.99. For the most part, although it was rather short in length and sometimes a bit repetitious, I wasn't sorry I did so.

The author's account held my interest as she described her gradual, impactful and almost inexorable march toward gender transition. This autobiographical narrative was a very moving, graphical and seemingly honest presentation of the author's journey from a male gender role to a female one. Along with her transformation, the author vividly describes the struggles of being transsexual in the context of the enhanced hardships she endured, just by virtue of being an African American transsexual, an exceptionally rare bird indeed. Her viewpoint, as a person of color, provides the reader with a much different and very unique perspective.

I found the account of the author's transition to be quite a refreshing change from the more common, almost cookie-cutter narratives of the similar journeys of white, middle class types, not that those transitions weren't unique and fraught with their own particular issues, it's just that no other account I've read about previously was by a black transgender person, and very few memoirs or autobiographies reveal such intimate details of what many would consider to be a rather sordid side of life. The author, who lived for many years on the "Wild Side," has obviously come through her experience in great emotional shape, keeping that part of her existence in complete prospective as being necessary for her survival at the time. Other memoirs, "I'm Not Myself These Days," by Josh Kilmer, or, "The Champagne Slipper" by Joann Layne, come to mind as being comparable in this sense.

Just a couple of concerns I wanted to express. First, in terms of the writing, which on the whole is excellent, I want to point out that being "transgender" or "transsexual" is described on several occasions as a "life style," when, in reality, it isn't that at all, but as much a part of a person as their arm. I know the author realizes this, but I think this idea is expressed incorrectly a few times, including in the forward, written by a learned individual.

In addition, I felt the author did quite a bit of gratuitous "name-dropping," particularly in the first half, that wasn't really necessary to the cause of the book. It seems that there wasn't much connection with the celebrities she encountered at that time, other than simply crossing paths with them. Later on, the author relates that she interacted, rather intimately it seems, with some other famous individuals, but doesn't mention their names, obviously not to embarrass them. However, one can determine who they were by doing a search of the author's name on Google, as the author apparently did eventually disclose their identities in interviews she did.

Lastly, this book is a very short and disappointing four-hour length, as a Kindle text-to-speech experience, but let me take the high road here and just say that I'm pleased the author repriced it and that, although short and sweet, I really enjoyed it.

Move over Superhead! There’s a new girl in town, and she’s claiming to have some juicy details about big names in the entertainment industry. In the tell-all book I Rise, The Transformation of Toni Newman, which is currently available for purchase, Newman talks about the journey from being born a little boy in North Carolina to working the New York streets as a “lady of the night.” During her days as a prostitute, Newman details alleged encounters with rapper LL Cool J, comedian Eddie Murphy and Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee.



Here are excerpts from Toni’s book:  


“LL Cool J was a onetime encounter and very enjoyable.”


“Mister Cee picked me up and many others for the sole purpose of receiving oral sex. Mister Cee was obsessive about receiving good head, and he was very verbal and very generous if you performed up to his expectations.”


“I never had an encounter with Eddie Murphy, but he was visiting 14th Street late at night. I know at least five transgender who did have sex with Eddie Murphy. He was interested in the girl with the biggest male genitalia.”


So much for client confidentiality! If the tales are true, of course.
