Scottish Transgender Fears Not Surviving In Men’s Prison

Sophie Eastwood, a transgender prisoner, who changed from male to female and now identifies as a baby in Scottish prison cried that she is afraid she would not survive if moved to a men’s prison in the country.

Eastwood, who identifies as a woman started her transitioning journey while in the Scottish prison in the year 2017, being held at Scotland’s only all-female jail, HMP Cornton Vale. She was once identified as a male named Daniel serving at Dumfries Young Offenders Institution for dangerous driving when he strangled a cellmate, Paul Algie, to death with shoelaces in 2004.

While filing the report, the killer revealed that it was a relief when she was moved to a female prison stating she would have been sexually violated if she was to be in a male prison.

Speaking to the newsmen, the transgender said, “The main threat was that I would suffer serious sexual violence. It was a relief to be moved to the female estate where I have felt safe and I’ve gained the trust of fellow prisoners.

‘I think Scottish Prison Service staff manage trans ­prisoners well but it would be impossible for me to feel safe in a male prison.”

Sophie Eastwood, who declared she was a baby last year, now demands that guards hold her hand and also asks for baby food and nappies.
