Trigger WarningTransphobia and trans misogyny


At a men’s prison in Vacaville, California, about two dozen transgender women have been learning to live side-by-side with more than 2000 cisgender men. Some live in huge dormitories, some in single cells. But all of these women, who were assigned the sex of male at birth, have had to fight to express their identity under grim circumstances. Yekaterina Wesa Patience hid her female identity for years after she was raped twice in prison. Jazzie Paradize Scott sees herself as a “mother hen” and advocate for the other women in the prison. She persuaded prison officials to create support groups for transgender inmates. And after decades behind bars, Ava Marie Fey started taking hormones in the hopes of obtaining gender affirmation surgery. She wants to one day be transferred to a women’s prison.
