Dan McKibben et al v. John McMahon et al. (USA)

Gay, bisexual and transgender Male inmates filed a federal lawsuit against San Bernardino County and its sheriff, alleging they are kept in a segregated unit that doesn’t give them equal access to rehabilitation services and work programs that could shorten their incarceration and help them learn job skills.

The lawsuit, which seeks class-action status, was filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles and includes 15 plaintiffs, including current and former inmates at West Valley Detention Center, where San Bernardino County houses gay, bisexual and transgender inmates in a special unit known as the “alternative lifestyle tank.”

We support humane treatment of all persons who are incarcerated.  All incarcerated persons, including Women, deserve such treatment.
