The Oregon Department of Corrections is under fire for denying inmates (including those pictured here) with gender dysphoria medical and mental health treatment related to their diagnoses, even when treatment has been called for by physicians and other medical professionals. The corrections department’s actions allegedly run counter to federal court rulings in as many as eight states where judges have found that treatments sought by transgender prisoners are medically necessary.
