Re-Becoming Mohagany

Mohagany Foster was released from New Hanover Correctional Center in Wilmington, N.C. on November 8, 2022 after a year-long sentence. As a trans woman, the county housed her in a men’s facility against her wishes because of gender laws in the United States prison system. Finally released, Mohagany is now working toward reclaiming her female identity in the real world. With support from the Durham LGBTQ+ community, she has found housing in northern Durham and is applying for jobs as a social justice advocate for the trans and Black community.
