TULSA, Okla. — A transgender inmate can sue the state of Oklahoma and prison officials who she says stopped her hormone therapy because they thought she was faking her gender identity, a federal judge has ruled.
A physician’s assistant ordered an end to Glenn Porter’s hormone therapy after a staff psychologist at Dick Conner Correctional Center suggested she was ‘masquerading as a woman,’ according to the complaint.
The article goes on to state the following:
Chief U.S. District Judge John Dowdell on Monday ordered an evidentiary hearing be held regarding Porter’s request for a preliminary injunction that, if granted, would forbid prison officials from denying her the hormone treatments, Tulsa World reported.
In the lawsuit, Porter claims to be the victim of harassment and discrimination due to being housed in an all-male open dorm.
