Pathways to, conditions and consequences of incarceration for women 2013, para. 61
Policies for conjugal visits often discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex prisoners. Because same-sex marriages are illegal in many countries, such prisoners are not likely to be lawfully married, and thus not permitted to receive visits from their partners. Even in systems allowing conjugal visits to unwedded partners, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex prisoners are not offered the same rights.
