The “boy2woman.com” hoax website

In 2006, I helped shut down a long-running hoax website called boy2woman.com. The site used stolen images to create a fake transgender person and was used to sell pirated transgender pornography via a site called boy2woman.inadult.com. The project was part of this site’s ongoing work exposing fake internet transgender people like the now defunct Changez Le Monde and the ongoing “transkids.us” hoax.

2005 screencap from boy2woman.com

New York-based web designer Kevin Garvey maintained the site. The site allegedly featured his girlfriend “Nancy” and sold subscriptions to a pornographic members-only area. Computer forensics led back to Garvey and his partner Lainey Brophy. When presented with the evidence, Garvey claimed after taking the site down that “the person referred to as ‘Nancy’ on the boy2woman website died of complications from lyphoma [sic] on October 11.” After I created a page on the scam, he sent legal threats in March and April 2007 that I did not respond to.

Below is an example of a manipulated photo of trans adult performer Kimberly Devine (July 17, 1976–January 29, 2016). RIP, Kim! Miss seeing you at Peanuts and Yukon!
