THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Through the Freedom of Information Act, the Smoking Gun obtained a two-page list of names and other information regarding 61 transgender inmates in federal prisons from the Bureau of Prisons (BOP). (The names of the prisoners however, were whited out by the BOP). There is no information as to why the BOP is maintaining such a list.
The heading of this document states “GID Inmates” (GID likely meaning gender identity disorder). Along with their names, the document notes the federal prison they’re serving at, and whether or not they’re receiving HRT. There are two other categories, but it is not clear as to what these categories mean.
Likewise, there is no information as to the purpose of the list. One cannot readily answer the question of whether this maintaining of such a list by the federal prison system helps or hurts transgender prisoners.
