KYLP 1st Annual Champion Awards Reception
Honoring Judge Lucinda Masterton (Retired)
A cocktail reception to honor the Hon. Lucinda Masterton, recently retired from the Fayette Family Court, who will receive KYLP's first annual Champion Award for steadfast commitment to protecting the rights of LGBTQIA+ children and youth.
Lucinda Masterton, recently retired Judge of the Fayette Family Court in Lexington, was an early supporter of the Kentucky Youth Law Project's mission to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQI+) children and youth. She understood that these youth need specific advocacy to address issues related to their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. In no venue was that more crucial than in her Dependency, Neglect, and Abuse Court, where she appointed KYLP as a special guardian ad litem to address the needs of these children and youth.
KYLP is proud of the work Judge Masterton has done to protect these youth. Therefore, we want to honor her by presenting her with our first annual Champion award for outstanding service to LGBTQI+ children and youth.
