Recommendation: Queer and Trans Prisoner Correspondence

Alison recommends…

I was hesitant at first, when starting to learn about it, but the more I read the more I became convinced: this is an Awesome Idea.

Apply for the program, and they’ll match you up with a queer, transvariant, bifluid, anything-out-of-the-GBLTQRSTX-hypercube-spectrum PERSON, from a prison from across Canada and the US. It’s your choice how often to write and your chance to make a difference and give some connections in a person’s life that is hell enough in prison without being ‘different.’
