Kanautica Zayre-Brown is a Trans woman currently in a men's prison in North Carolina. She has undergone gender confirming surgeries and her name has been legally changed. Despite this, the state recognizes her by her birth name and refuses her requests to transfer to a woman's prison. Kanautica fears for her safety due to regular harassment. As a woman, she showers and dresses in front of men.

While I don't personally know Kanautica this is concerning to me. So, I can only imagine how worried her family, husband and friends are. Prison can be very dangerous. I've had family and friends spend time there and relatives have passed away there. The dynamics are different than they are on the outside.

Ms. Brown is serving time for her crime.  Her punishment shouldn't include this daily threat hanging over her head. Please approve her transfer to a woman's prison. Anything else is inhumane.
