Gay prisoner denied rehab

It’s common for prisons to put separate gay and trans people from the rest of the prison population, often in solitary confinement, because actually keeping order in prisons cuts into private prison owners’ profit margins. Naturally, the effect is to discriminate against gay and trans prisoners.

And as more and more of the American population gets put behind bars, these issues stop being prison issues and start being everyone issues.
