Dear SQ News,
Greetings to you all! My name is Kat Meow. I’m a transgender woman doing life. I’m currently housed in North Kern State Prison Reception Center. I’m being represented by ACLU of LA LGBTQ. My lawyer is M. Goodman.
We are suing Tulare County Jail for keeping me in severe solitary confinement for three years and not providing me my estrogen, which results in me trying to castrate my own self. I almost bled to death.
I have so much stuff I want to share and questions. I’m sure you are not in a position to bless me with a subscription to your wonderful newspaper, San Quentin News.
I’ll send it home so my Mom can read. Thank You.
K. “Kat Meow” Sanchez
Thank you for reading the San Quentin News. I hope and pray that you are well and in good spirits. SQ News has published a story concerning California approving its first gender reassignment operation for an inmate in this edition.
I hope this information can be useful to you as you encounter obstacles while incarcerated. Please be safe and have patience and don’t do anything that would bring you harm.
Know that things will eventually work out in your favor and keep a positive attitude. Say hello to Mom from us at the San Quentin News.
Richard “Bonaru” Richardson
