United States: meeting my hero
Thoughts on good and evil
Alex, an Austrian, has been corresponding for two years with Xandan, a young trans man imprisoned in Texas. Through dozens of letters, Alex has come to know Xandan’s journey, from the death of his parents, his childhood spent in an orphanage, a history of drugs, a crime that he doesn’t recall committing, to his detention conditions at Lane Murray prison. Today, in their testimonials to Prison Insider, Xandan describes his detention conditions, and Alex talks about how they met.
This is a story of friendship between two people from different continents, one deprived of liberty and the other who is free.
