Bureau Of Prisons Maintains "Gender Identity Disorder List" Of 61 Federal Inmates
The Bureau of Prisons maintains a list of federal inmates classified as transgender, transsexual, or "gender identity disorder."
Additionally, the two-page list notes that each of the inmates is undergoing hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
The “GID Inmates” list, released by prison officials in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, does not identify the specific prisoners. Names and ID numbers were withheld since, prison officials concluded, such a release would be a privacy invasion and could endanger the lives of the inmates.
The list includes specific categorizations such as “transexualism,” “GID,” and “transgender.” A prisoner at the Victorville, California lockup is listed as having “Sexual DO NOS,” a disorder not otherwise specified.
The list does not specify the sexes of the 61 inmates, who are spread across dozens of BoP facilities.
