The horrific reality of transgender individuals in Texas prisons

 |

Even as people fight for justice, some cries remain unheard and voices unanswered. In American society, many of these lost voices belong to the incarcerated, who are cut off, ignored, and forgotten behind prison walls. People in prison suffer daily, and their abusers go unpunished. These incarcerated victims are treated with inhuman disregard and live in squalid conditions; they are oppressed, dehumanized, tortured, raped, and even slaughtered. Many have little or no communication with loved ones and are overlooked or dismissed by media and policymakers. Among the most oppressed of all are members of the incarcerated LGBTQIA+ community—and among these, transgender individuals. They are constantly discriminated against and perpetually targeted by staff and other incarcerated people alike. Ridiculed, taunted, and assaulted, many are provided with little or no protection and forced to endure in silence.
