The Case of Prison Transition

Disclaimer: The purpose of this site is simply to document. This site does not encourage or condone discrimination against trans men and women. It is in no way intended to demonize trans men and trans women any more than reporting on any other types of violence demonize women or men. Presentation of research data is simply that, presentation of research data.

With the rise of gender identity anti-discrimination laws, many male prisoners are seeking transition. It remains unclear whether some cases represent a legitimate medical need or simply a desire for special treatment or placement in a women’s prison.

The British Association of Gender Identity Specialists has raised concerns over the “ever-increasing tide of referrals of patients in prison serving long or indeterminate sentences for serious sexual offences,stating that these “vastly outnumber the number of prisoners incarcerated for more ordinary, non-sexual, offences.”

Numerous prisoners on this list have pursued both government funded sex change and placement in women’s facilities.
