Colombian jails are well known for its overcrowded levels, corruption, and lack of governability. For people with different genders and non-heteronormative sexual orientations, being deprived of their liberty also implies facing humiliating acts and violence against their identity.

Through the project “Cuerpos en Prisión, Mentes en Acción” (Bodies in Prison, Minds in Action) by the “Red Comunitaria Trans” (Trans Community Network) we have worked in an independent and self-sustained manner looking for the assurance of the constitutional rights of TLGBI people (Transgender, Lesbian, gays, bisexual and intersexual). From our work in La Picota jail, we have shown to the INPEC (National Penitentiary and Prison Agency) and the society the urgent needs and we have implemented strategies to face them.

In 2014 we published the first version of our guidelines “Cuerpos en Prisión, Mentes en Acción”, which included action guidelines to demand rights stipulated by INPEC’s regulations and the sentences of the Constitutional Court regarding this topic.

Back then, regulations were limited and unknown. They did not consider very important topics such as clear procedures to assure a decent requisition, amendment of name and sex fields in ID documents, medical attention specialized on treating diseases due to body transformations, access to hormone replacement therapy, among others. Besides, issues as the ingress of self-care items and clothes matching gender identity faced many obstacles, although they were authorized by INPEC’s regulations. In fact, in many jails, these difficulties persist.

Nowadays, thanks to our work and the work of other organizations working on jails, thanks to the TLGBI social movement, to the decisions of the Constitutional Court, the work of the Ministry of Justice’s and INPEC’s committed workers; big changes have been generated in penitentiary politics regarding our rights as people who belong to TLGBI sector.

Nevertheless, we are aware that, even if the regulations change, the reality will not unless each person in the penitentiary knows their rights and the mechanisms to materialize them. This is the reason why we decided to update our practical guidelines and we have invited Zallary Cardona, author of the comic Mariquismo Juvenil, to illustrate them.

We strongly believe that the Guidelines are a fundamental tool to transform the hostile environment existing in jail for us, to dignify our life in prison and to keep on with our life project. Your help is fundamental to make it possible.

What will these Guidelines include?

Chapter 1: Gender identity and sexual orientation.

- Lesbian Identities, gays, bisexual, transgender and intersexual.

- Queer identities

- Muxies identities, hijras, fakaladies and two-spirit

Chapter 2: Diferencial Rights in prison

-Jail entry

-Makeup and accessories

-Hair

-Requisition

-Amendment of name and sex fields in ID documents

-Intimate visit

Chapter 3: Health

-Hormone replacement therapy

-Body transformations

-Love and self-care

Chapter 4: Sexual life

-Knowing your body

-Taking care of your body

-Sexual life and mind-altering substances

-Preventing STIs

Chapter 5: Relationship with the guardians

-Assertive strategies to demand your rights

-Templates

-Glossary

When will we publish it?

After we reach the 100% of the funds, it will take us 6 months to finish our Project. You will get your rewards at that moment.

If we don't reach the 100% of the funding goal, we will use it to do the following:

  • With the 10%

    We will cover the cost of the rewards.

  • With the 25%

    We will publish a basic book of guidelines only including the chapter of diferencial rights in prison, with the action paths to face violence regarding entry to the prison, use of makeup, clothing, and accessories matching identity, the procedures of requisition, amendment of name and sex in the ID fields in documents among others.

  • With the 50%

    Our guidelines will also have a chapter about health including information about self-care, hormonal replacement therapy, and body transformations. We will address the issue regarding possible risks and we will provide a path of access to required medical attention, especially to face the possible diseases caused by bad medical practice with body modifiers.

  • With the 75%

    We will publish our Guidelines with a lot more of content. Besides the content previously mentioned, it will also include a chapter about gender identities and sexual orientations that will address lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex, queer, muxies, hijras, fakaladies and two-spirit identities.
