Transgender woman narrates how she was raped 2000 times in a male prison

A transgender woman who incarcerated at the Boggo Road Prison in Brisbane, a male prison in Australia for car theft, has narrated how she was sexually abused on a permanent basis. The unnamed woman claims she was raped over 2000 ties during her four year stint at the facility.  She also said she was not allowed to continue her hormone treatment and grew back her facial hair.

This is what she said of her hellish experience:
"You are basically set upon with conversations about being protected in return for sex. They are either trying to manipulate you or threaten you into some sort of sexual contact and then, once you perform the requested threat of sex, you are then an easy target as others want their share of sex with you, which is more like rape than consensual sex. It makes you feel sick but you have no way of
defending yourself. It was rape and yes I was flogged and bashed to the point where I knew I had to do it in order to survive, but survival was basically for other prisoners’ pleasure. It was hell on earth, it was as if I died and this was my punishment."
