New Zealand to Allow Transgender Prisoners Transfer of Jail Fit for Their Preferred Gender

New Zealand has recently been looking more and more like a great place to live. Not only is it an incredibly scenic place (being the set for the Lord of the Rings and many other films), but they recently passed a same-sex marriage law and other major anti-discrimination laws helping transgender persons.

Here they are taking action even though there are only 9 transgender prisoners in their prison system.  Note that this new policy doesn’t care if you are pre-op, non-op, or post-op.
