trans prison inmates
Some progress has been made, but inmates are still routinely denied access to gender-affirming care and facilities.
It's a first for the province, which has historically not recognized preoperative transgender inmates.
A district court judge ruled that a transgender former inmate who was incarcerated in Orlando had no right to sue the prison for putting her at excessive risk.
Last Friday, a district court judge ruled that a former transgender prisoner who was raped had no right to sue Orange County, Florida, for showing deliberate indifference to her safety.
