Beyond this list of inspiring accomplishments, Tony is known for infusing his stories of the struggles of transition with insight, humor, and compassion. Tony is the Director of the Youth & Family Program at Health Care Advocates International


In 2013 Tony was the subject of the Film, “Self Made Man” a film by Lori Petchers. A SELF-MADE MAN takes a candid look at what it means to be transgender, told through an intimate portrait of trans youth advocate Tony Ferraiolo. Inspired by his own experiences, Tony works with transgender children as young as 8 years old, who have the same feelings of disconnect that he had and examines the complicated dynamics of transitioning from multiple perspectives.  Tony is also on Hulu with his mini-series “Transitioning"
