Transgender prisoner suing Massachusetts

Author: 

Today's Boston Globe (11-16-2017) has an article about a non-GRS TG woman who was placed in a male prison. The 52 yr old woman who received hormone therapy for nearly 40 years is suing the Mass Dept of Correction in a bid to be transferred to a woman's prison. She has been repeatedly strip-searched by male guards and forced to stand naked in front of male inmates . She also has been forced to shower with male inmates. She is currently serving a 3 to 4 year sentence for a non-violent drug offense. She told officials she was a woman in October 2016.

husband and wife actors

I've been trying to find a story about married actors where the husband wants a staring role as a TG. To prove he can do it, he goes through a producer's hoops, ending dressed as a Vegas showgirl. I don't think the final chapter was ever posted. Pretty sure it wasn't on BC/TS.

I really shouldn't drink wine before I post. I posted #3 instead of Chapter 2. This has been corrected, I'm crazy, not those 20 or so who already read the posting

The Boston Medical Center Hospital just announced ( 5/18/16) that they will be joining a small group of US hospitals offering Gender Reassignment Surgery for both M to F and F to M. The hospital has long provided hormone therapy and mental health services, but due
to a growing demand,and slowly changing insurance coverage, it was decided to provide the surgical procedures. The BMC said it already
has a waiting list of over 100 patients to be evaluated for surgery.
This is good news for patients in the New England area.

It really makes you wonder what we are coming to when this pops up in the news,
"Students at Oxford University in England are allowed to skip lectures about crimes they find 'Potentially Disturbing'.
Makes sense, except, they are criminal law students.
Nice to see this is happening in the UK as well as the USA. Unbelievable !

Well, scratch North Carolina off your vacation list. Against heavy pressure from major businesses in the state, N Carolina has voted solidly
against the laws concerning the use of rest rooms by LGBT people. The Klan rides again ! Many business leaders are thinking of moving
out ot the state.
