I did fall in love in prison though... He  was the first person to read that I was trans. When he touched me, he touched me like I was a girl. He treated me like a fucking princess.  I wasn't really interested in him at first, but he coerced me into having sex with him and then he treated me like I was a woman. It became like a fix for me.

Now, being transgender in jail… First of all, my ID says that I’m a female. So, I get to the city jail. They asked me if I was all woman. I said no. At this point all of the officers are like staring at me like I’m a freak of nature.

Actually I’m not homeless. I have a place but… I do drugs. I stay in Norwood and I prostitute over here [downtown] so it’s too far to go home and come right back over here. I might as well go on and stay over here in the downtown area, keep going, get clothes from the shelter.

I became a transsexual at the age of 13 or 14. Going to school was hard because I had to fight all the time. I was always suspended. My father never approved of me being the woman that I am. So, I got emancipated at the age of 16.

BW: Darlin’ you’re making me nervous. I’m not asking you to tell me anything illegal. If I’m not asking you to tell me anything illegal, why do you think I’m a cop?

Jenna

I learned how to prostitute at a very young age. I was 16. It was bad, but you learn how to work it, honey. I got my teeth veneered… I did a lot. I worked it.

My ex was a veteran, God bless his soul. He overdosed on pain killers. I went over there and something wasn’t right. He didn’t come to the door. I crawled in the middle window cause I remembered I left it open. I found his body just limp.
