An intersex prisoner, who identifies as female, was placed in a male prison where she was exposed to “ridicule” and “cruel and degrading treatment”, despite a magistrate recommending she be taken to the women’s prison, a tribunal has heard. The woman has lodged a discrimination complaint against the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) and the Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) saying they contravened the Equal Opportunity Act in services they provided to her. The woman was born as an intersex person and was assigned female at birth, but as a child was given a male name and transitioned to a male identity.
