Minor, 27 claimed she was misgendered and beaten during the transfer. She added that one of the guards mocked her when she asked to be stripped and searched by a woman.

Her case gained attention in April when it was revealed that she had impreganated two fellow prisoners at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility where she being held at first.
‘I have accepted that I am in a male facility but I have not accepted nor will I ever agree to or accept that I am anything other than a woman who happens to be transgender,’ Minor said.

‘They have violated my right to be safe and free from sexual harassment, by putting me in one of the most violent youth correctional facilities,’ she alleged.’
She accused the Department Of Correctional of causing her psychologiocal damage by exposing her to triggering situations.
‘I don’t know what it’s like to live as a man, and I refuse to ever revert back to such habits or behavior. They said that I am here for safety no please understand that I am here for punishment, just the sad part is this punishment may kill me,’ Minor complained.
