Default An inmate says the administration at Stafford Creek is LGBT friendly

(Moderators, I could not figure out whether this should go here, or in the LGBT sub forum, or in the voices of inmates sub forum. If you move it, I agree with your decision in advance.)

Promoting LGBTI Tolerance in Prison: The Hardest Challenge

...
In early 2016, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) prisoners found a powerful ally in Stafford Creek’s new superintendent, Margaret Gilbert. With her blessing, the first LGBTI awareness event took place. Among the speakers were the Associate Superintendent, Jeneva Cotton, who stressed the need for both prisoners and staff to be more “open” and “accepting” of other people’s differences; and a professor who spoke on his life experiences in the gay community and the history of sexual identity.

The inmate says Superintendent Gilbert has been doing concrete work, against resistance, to improve things for sexual minorities.

Thank you for the news article. Yes, you put it in the correct forum (News & Events).

She may have an uphill battle though I admire her courage to face that battle and not flee from it.

Oh, GInger, I can't take credit. I had actually started it in the Stafford Creek forum and Patchoui moved it to the right place.
