HOLLER AT YOUR GIRL:
Cjay is a transgender woman of color, housed in San Quentin, the San Francisco Bay Area’s internationally known California state prison.
Cjay has been in nearly as many prisons as she has fingers yet nothing in her upbringing predestined her for crime.
Addiction does that to people, turns good to bad. Cjay loved and hated drugs. Drugs allowed her mind to rest but her mind could not rest without drugs.
Her mind, in fact, was spinning with pain, guilt, and rejection. Being transgender, especially in the 1980’s and 1990’s, was the life of a pariah. Fortunately for Cjay she had her fellow trans-sisters.
Holler at Your Girl is a one of a kind account of a presently incarcerated transgender woman who from an early age knew her identity yet suffered immense trials before finding her soul.
