I nwhen Calvin Burdine was awaiting sentencing for allegedly stabbing his gay lover to death, the prosecuting attorney encouraged the jury in his closing remarks to award Burdine the death penalty, rather than life in prison, on the prisoners that sending a gay man to prison was akin prisoners sending a kid to a candy store. After 17 minutes sluts in tight shorts deliberation, the jury obliged and sentenced Burdine to die.
His death sentence was later overturned mostly because Burdine's public defender had slept through much of his trialbut the homophobic thinking — that naked is some kind gay paradise for gay men — lingers on. The reality of life in prison for homosexuals and transgender individuals does not appear to reflect this myth.
One young man named Rodney, imprisoned for fraud and check-forging, sent me a detailed account of his life so far in prison. He described a litany of brutal rapes, naked, beatings and, eventually, the total abandonment of his male identity as his only means of survival in the hyper-masculine and often homophobic prison environment.
His account suggests that far from being a paradise, prison for gay men can be a living hell.
Within days of his first entering prison, the year-old Rodney claimed he was the victim of three separate sexual assaults, involving five different inmates. The prison he was first sent to did actually have a separate tier for gay inmates, but according to Rodney, because he did not "appear overly effeminate" during his classification, he was placed with the general population; and because it was supposedly rare to have a gay person slip through the cracks of the gay, his fellow inmates took full advantage.
