We are very proud to have connected with April, a Black trans woman who is incarcerated with Beth Schwartzapfel to help uplift her story. Please take some time to read her and four other incarcerated TGI people’s stories.

April Turner Cassadine is a 32-year-old trans woman who has been incarcerated in a Tennessee men’s prison since 2016. Prior to her incarceration, she won titles in plus-size trans beauty pageants.
