Brazil Transgender Prisoners
In this July 8, 2015 photo, inmate Bruno da Silva, right, holds hands with his partner, transgender inmate Danny Campos de Oliveira, inside the Evaristo de Moraes Prison, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Oliveira, a 27-year-old serving an 18-month sentence for a larceny conviction, said the new rules protecting transgender inmates have already improved prison life. Before transgender prisoners were “bald and ugly, with beards because they couldn’t use hormones,” said Oliveira. Now, they “come out of here with more dignity, a bit less marginalized.” (AP Photo/Mauro Pimentel)
