For someone who is in the process of transitioning, videos and photos of transition progress are a huge inspiration. For those who are transitioning while incarcerated, it pretty much impossible to share that progress. Many trans folks who are locked up, do not have loved ones supporting them on the outside. For those few who do, often photos and videos from prisons are too grainy and of extremely poor quality. Thanks to Fabian Washington, Activist, and Media Specialist at I M Live LLC we are able to give everyone the unique look at Ky’s transition process. It is the 1st and only transition video of someone who is incarcerated.
The beginning of this video is a conversation between me and Ky… it’s an incredibly personal moment for us. I was feeling beat down after months of fighting the Ga. Department of Corrections and begging for help from civil rights groups. I was on my own, questioning everything I had done, and wondering if I was just making things worse. I broke down and asked him “Why me? ” Was he sure that I was the right person to be fighting for him? His response is what pushed me to keep going. His trust pushes me, and it will continue to push me until he is home. ~Pinky
