USA: “the darkness suffocates me at all time”

Britney is incarcerated at Lane Murray Unit, a state prison located in Texas. She tells us how a typical day goes by.

Britney is a trans woman. For the past 14 years, she has been incarcerated in Lane Murray Unit in Texas. She does not expect to be released before 2038. Two years ago, she received a letter from Austria. This was the beginning of her correspondence with Alex. Alex reflects on their friendship. Britney, for her part, describes the conditions of her detention.

These two texts tell a story of a friendship between two women, each on a different continent, one free, the other imprisoned.

I can hear some prisoners literally being transformed into monsters because the walls are closing in on them

Some of these women have been in this dungeon for over 10 years
