Bureau of Prisons Rolls Back Transgender Protections

by | May 17, 2018 | BOP Conditions | 0 comments

The Bureau of Prisons has reversed protections for transgender prison inmates that were initially introduced by Barack Obama. An inmate’s biological sex will now be used to make the initial decision as to where transgender prisoners are housed, instead of the gender to which they identify, according to a change in guidelines announced on Friday by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons. This new policy was condemned

by transgender activists, and by David Stacy, Government Affairs Director for the Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT advocacy group. The move is “harmful and disrespectful” according to Stacy.

This is not the first instance in which the current administration has sought to roll back transgender rights initiated by former President Barak Obama. This administration attempted to ban transgender Americans from serving in the U.S. military and also, in October, the administration stated that a federal law banning gender-based workplace discrimination does not protect transgender employees, reversing another Obama-era policy.
