Mass incarceration, and the detriment it poses to marginalized groups in the United States of America, has been studied at length from the perspective of both the Black and queer communities, separately. However, much of this data, while incredibly insightful and eye-opening, does not adequately account for intersectionality. Data that only looks at one aspect of a person’s identity (i.e. only their race, or only their gender identity), does not address that individuals who are part of more than one marginalized group are affected interconnectedly by these identities. The Black transgender community is most often overlooked in research, despite being disproportionately impacted by mass incarceration.
