These powerful works depict the difficulties of prison for the LGBTQ community.

About the Artist

Sarah Jane Baker

Sarah Jane Baker is an artist, violinist and author living in London, UK. 

 

Sarah Jane Baker is a 51 year old trans-woman, who until her release on September 2019 was the world's longest serving trans-gender prisoner. After serving 30 years in 29 male prisons, Sarah hit the streets, the media and the British government, challenging political and government policy that does not imprison trans-women either within the prison system or the community. 

 

Sarah can often be described as being a nuisance with her political graffiti which is often considered subversive. At other times, Sarah can be found in HS2 and Extinction Rebellion protest camps or in Parliament Square where she regularly highlights issues of injustice and inhumanity within both male and female prisons in the UK.
