NYC Anti-Violence Project announces Cameron Esposito as Courage Award honoree

Cameron Esposito has been announced as NYC Anti-Violence Project’s next Courage 2023 honoree, to be awarded on October 19.

Esposito, an honoree for the 2023 Courage Awards, has been using her platform as a comic to speak on LGBTQ+ issues, feminism, and social justice for decades.

An LA-based standup comic, actor, writer, and host, Esposito has appeared on NBC, ABC, CBS, Netflix, Max, Hulu, Amazon, Cartoon Network and Comedy Central, in addition to her work as a nationally-touring headliner. Her 2018 special “Rape Jokes,” a standup special about sexual assault from a survivor’s perspective, raised crucial funds for RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. In 2020, she released “Save Yourself,” a memoir that tackles sexuality, gender and equality – and how her Catholic upbringing prepared her for a career as an outspoken lesbian comedian in ways the Pope never could have imagined. Last year, Cameron hosted live conferences for LGBTQ+ rights organizations Lesbians Who Tech and National Center for Lesbian Rights.

Esposito was the face of the 2023 SKITTLES Pride Campaign to promote LGBTQ+ artists and stories in partnership with GLAAD, Audible, and her podcast, Queery. Through her podcast, Cameron has had conversations with the brightest LGBTQ+ luminaries covering themes of identity and the shifting cultural matrix around gender and sexuality.

For her continued commitment to uplifting the LGBTQ+ community and survivors through her work, AVP is excited to have Cameron as a 2023 Courage Honoree. We hope you’ll join us to celebrate her and our community.

The AVP empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected communities and allies to end all forms of violence through organizing and education, and support survivors through counseling and advocacy.
