We, the trans*guidebook collective, are an abolitionist group made up of volunteer individuals who want to support trans* people in prisons. Our new brochure aims to support imprisoned trans* and non-binary people, by giving legal advices and everyday tips. We would also like to begin a debate about trans*/non-binary people and prisons. Above all, we would like to connect imprisoned, repressed and other trans*/non-binary people who want to show solidarity, with each other.
