I was also able to do a radio interview with Michelle Meow for Progressive Voices Radio. Events took a sad turn as we heard news of the sudden death of an amazing advocate and ally. Juan Evans exemplified incredible courage and will be missed. As for Ky, he’s sad and frustrated but holding up well.

I personally have had no response from the prison regarding the Gender Therapy Request packages I sent on May 28th. Since the prison is not required to speak to anyone unless an inmate dies, I am not likely to receive a response.
