Transman Serving Time For Accidentally Killing His Attacker

Posted by trans.forming on May 6, 2015 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Ky Peterson, a black trans man from Georgia, was brutally attacked and raped. He fought his attacker which resulted in involuntary manslaughter. Peterson has been imprisoned three years for the 'involuntary manslaughter' of his attacker as , which he says was in self-defense.

 Although Peterson’s story may sound exceptional, it's the harsh reality for tens of thousands of transgender people currently incarcerated, most of whom are people of color. According to the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National LGBTQ Task Force's 2011 survey, Injustice at Every Turn, trans and gender-nonconforming people are jailed at nearly six times the rate of their cisgender (nontrans) counterparts. While just 2.7 percent of the cisgender population had been imprisoned, 16 percent of trans respondents reported spending time in jail.

Trans(forming) Makes the News Again! Thanks to those who continue to help us support Ky (and Pinky).

Recently, Peterson has been in contact with local trans advocacy group Trans(Forming), which has given him his first access to a gender therapist via video conference. Peterson anticipates receiving a formal letter diagnosing him with "gender dysphoria," which is often the first step needed to request medically necessary hormone therapy. He is currently contemplating, in a move similar to fellow trans black Georgia inmate Ashley Diamond, pushing the state's Department of Corrections for transition-related care.
