Tony Award nominee Justin Vivian Bond, performer and writer of "Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels," whose hit show Summer Camp recently wrapped at 54 Below.

After being told I wasn't "butch" enough in my college theatre program, I was thrilled for myself and other young theatre queens when my very queer and outrageous show Kiki and Herb: Alive on Broadway was nominated for a Tony.
