Ohio state transgender inmate Whitney Lee wins fight to resume HRT

Ohio Transgender inmate Whitney Lee had been receiving HRT continuously since 1999, but those treatments were discontinued by the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction in February 2012.

Last month, a federal Judge Algenon Marbley issued a temporary order reinstating her treatments after a prison psychiatrist ruled that she wasn’t transgender.

After a two-day hearing, Judge Marbley ordered the state on Friday to permanently continue the treatments.

Lee had been receiving HRT while an inmate in federal prison. She is due to be released in October.
