Grayson is also believed to be the first Black trans woman to receive a full-ride scholarship from a Christian university.
The Imperial Court de San Diego is pleased to announce that in honor of yesterday's birthday of LGBTQ icon Marsha P. Johnson, it will be awarding a $1,000 Harvey Milk/Nicole M. Ramirez Scholarship to 18 year old student Keke Grayson.
The Milk/Ramirez Scholarship fund was established in 1979.
Keke is the first Black trans woman to get a scholarship from a Christian university to attend their school. Keke's inspiring story was featured in the July 1 issue of LGBTQ San Diego County News.
She has also been nominated for an International Jose Julio Sarria Scholarship.
