Laverne Cox, Planned Parenthood & More

Once again, we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Advocate.

See Laverne send Love to Ky

We here at Camp  Ky are blown away and thrilled to have the support of Ms. Cox but that’s not all…

Shortly after the Free CeCe premiere, The Advocate learned that our coverage of “The Ky Peterson Saga” had been honored with an award for media excellence from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Noting that “Planned Parenthood is proud to lift up the incredible work of these journalists … [and] their commitment to social justice,” the advocacy group praised The Advocate’s “critical and moving series on Ky Peterson [which] breaks the silence on the violence that trans men of color experience, and the neglect and mistreatment they face in prison.”

And finally, at the end of May, we were visited by the cast and crew of Viceland’s “Gaycation”. They came to film a segment about Ky’s story. I haven’t been notified about when the episode will air yet.
