Brazil transgender prisoners

In this July 8, 2015 photo, transgender inmates joke around while serving time at the Evaristo de Moraes prison in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. New rules adopted in late May allow transvestite and transgender inmates to be known by their common names, guarantee access to conjugal visits and let transgender people who identify as female decide whether to serve their sentences in a women’s facility. They also guarantee access to hormone therapy, and allow those living as women to wear lingerie and makeup and keep their hair long. They are spared strip searches in front of other prisoners and will no longer have to remove their shirts for sunbaths. (AP Photo/Mauro Pimentel)
