More Info

Edwin and CiCi Faulkner are both currently serving 20 years to life sentences in maximum secure facilities after a trick died during a kink session. Knowing the police would never believe them, they panicked and fled to Florida where they were later taken into custody. The prosecution called over 30 witnesses while only one person, CiCi, was allowed to testify in their defense. The jury deliberated for less than a day before finding them guilty in March of 2012. 

It's been nine years and Edwin and CiCi, despite multiple attempts to appeal their sentences, are still incarcerated. Body Hack is fundraising to fill up Edwin & CiCi's monthly commissary so they can purchase food, toiletries, and basic comforts while in prison. We are looking for supporters who can commit to a recurring monthly donation of any amount—$5, $10, $20, $50 or more—for at least one year to support Edwin & CiCi's commissary fund. 

Our goal is to find enough recurring donors to send the maximum commissary to Edwin and CiCi ($300 each) every month. If 30 squirrels put aside $20 each month, we'd make it! Fundly allows you to make a recurring donation that automatically charges you like a subscription service—it's super easy and helps us make sure Edwin and CiCi have access to essential goods year-round. Let's make this happen!

When donating, please select "Contribute Each Month". Supporting our community behind bars takes sustained effort, we need you to stay in the mix for as long as you can.


Endless gratitude to F2L (Freedom 2 Live), a grassroots initiative in NYC, for their tireless work over the better part of a decade to get justice for Edwin & CiCi. They've supported dozens of other queer and trans people of color navigating incarceration in New York State—learn more about their work at f2lrelieffund.org
