Federal judge blames ignorance and bigotry for denying transgender inmate medical treatment (Florida, USA, 23 August 2018)

Summary

After being arrested Reiyn Keohane (a trans woman who has identified as female since she was 8 years old) the Florida corrections systems stopped her hormone treatment and more or less attempted to forcibly detransition her both socially and medically over a period of years while incarcerating her in a men's prison. A federal lawsuit was filed on her behalf by the ACLU and the judge ruled that the Florida correctional system had acted capriciously from ignorance and bigotry and ordered them to provide both hormone treatment and access to women's clothing and grooming.
