Transgender Suing Prison for Unfair Treatment

A transgender inmate, who has been posing as a woman, is taking legal action against the Massachusetts Department of Correction.

He is demanding that the prison transfer him to the state’s female-only prison. The transgender is serving 3 to 4 years for drug crimes which were nonviolent, although he has a history of assault charges.

He has been on hormone therapy for 40 years to complete his transition, but still has male genitals. He is arguing that prisoners and guards alike have sexually groped and abused him while in the male prison.
