Letter from Shonre -
Hello my name is Lashonda Renee Fuchs-Baker “legally”. However, I acknowledge myself as Shonre Baker. I am a transgender FTM, and as you can tell from the return address, I am currently living at WCCW at this point… Living as I do, is not easy, especially in prison where I am forced to live as a female and not able to be as I feel I am. I am the only “transgender” here and I feel alone. My 6 year relationship has failed and I have no family support or friends at all. I am struggling with the religion issue for the issue of “being me” is a sin and all, but I still remain open. I am constantly harassed and I feel “targeted” due to my so firmly standing strong on my beliefs. I am not sure what the “community” can offer, but even some “advice” or an ear is worth me being grateful for. Thank you for your time.
