Transgender Confusion Causes Half Man/Half Woman to Be Abused in MDC Prison, According to Lawsuit

Tavoy Malcolm, 29, is having a tough time.

And not just over gender identity.

Born in Montego Bay, St. James Parish, Jamaica, and assigned at birth the gender of male, Tavoy grew up wanting to be a woman.

“From as far as I can remember, I was always attracted to men. I always knew my gender mentally, but physically I was in the wrong body,” Tavoy said.

Tavoy came to the USA to escape the prejudice she felt in Jamaica and to pursue the American dream of financial success.

“There were more opportunities and acceptance for transgender people in the United States,” Tavoy said. “Jamaica is not safe to make a choice like this one. I constantly had to live in fear and was constantly discriminated against. The thing is it wasn’t just by strangers alone but family also,” she said. “My mom passed away before I started my transformation, but my dad didn’t really understand it and it made him very distant for a while.”

In the US, Tavoy found a partner, Lorindo Powell, who also uses the name “Mr. Johnson,” and together they started a business helping the elderly collect sweepstakes winnings.

For years, the two operated their business which consisted primarily of informing senior citizens that they won a sweepstakes prize and helping seniors try to collect the prize money after first getting the seniors to pay the required taxes and other fees necessary to collect the windfalls.

The business paid well, it seems, at least for Tavoy and her Mr. Johnson.

It afforded Tavoy, who likes to be called “Tiana,” with money to get hormone therapy starting in 2015, and, happily, in 2017, she was able to pay for a breast enhancement surgery, plumping up her breasts in what could only be called a most fulsome manner.

Tavoy got her breast enhancement surgery through working with seniors.

One of their best clients ever was a 77-year-old woman who had won millions in a sweepstakes, they told her.

The lucky woman just needed to disclose certain financial information and pay some taxes so she could get her millions in winnings.

Lorindo, using the name Mr. Johnson, and Tavoy set about helping the woman, informing her that she needed to make regular bi-weekly payments to them which in turn they would use to pay the taxes on her winnings, a requirement she needed to accomplish before she could collect her millions.

Unhappily, while making the biweekly payments on the sweepstakes taxes, the woman fell behind on her bills and defaulted on her mortgage payments on her home.

Tavoy and Lorindo offered to help, suggesting that, once she collected her millions, she could pay off the mortgage in cash.

They offered to allow the woman to make the mortgage payments directly to them and they would take care of the bank. Things went askew, however, and the bank foreclosed on the elderly woman’s home, evicted her and she had to move into a rented room.

Tavoy and Lorindo assured her she would soon see happier days and get her sweepstakes millions, but the old woman began to smell something fishy and law enforcement got involved. Unhappily for Tavoy, she happened to call just when Homeland Security agents were interviewing her and when Tavory asked the old woman to deposit her social security check right into Tavoy’s bank account, something she had done for years, the woman had witnesses from the government.

This time, following the advice of Homeland Security agents, the woman stopped paying Tavoy and Lorindo, thus ending the income stream from their most lucrative client.

Over 10 years, Tavoy and Lorindo got some $572,000 from the woman, yet somehow the woman never got her sweepstakes winnings, though Tavoy and Lorindo assured her it was just a matter of a few more tax payments before she reaped her millions.

The money Tavoy and Lorindo earned from the woman was used for an array of essential living expenses including a Mercedes Benz sedan in which Lorindo proudly tooled around town in, showing off Tavoy’s augmented breasts.

Perhaps if this elderly woman had been their only client, they would not be judged so harshly. But it turns out that other clients also did not get their sweepstakes winnings.

Their unhappy clients included a Maryland couple with dementia, a 79-year-old Brooklyn teacher, an 89-year-old Florida man, and a 91-year-old woman living in a New Jersey retirement home.

The 91-year-old unhappily died before she could collect her winnings, but, in the meantime, Tavoy and Lorindo were able to collect a handsome fee for helping her out which included $13,000 in cash withdrawn from her bank and $10,000 charged on her credit card.

It is not inexpensive to change from a plain, butt-ugly Jamaican man to a glamorous, gorgeous American female.

Wardrobe is essential. And the $10,000 charged on the 91-year-old woman’s credit card just before she died definitely did not go to waste.

On February 6, 2017, Tavoy charged $4,700 worth of shoes from Barneys using the old lady’s credit card. The purchase included a pair of $695 crocodile leather sneakers, a pair of $895 blue suede sneakers, and two pairs of $1,095 white suede Christian Louboutin sneakers.

On February 14, 2017, Tavoy was back again charging $5,155 worth of shoes from Barneys, including a $1,995 pair of Christian Louboutin loafers.

Tavoy was so excited by her success and her new footwear that she used her Instagram account to model a pair of mint green Pigalle pumps by Louboutin that were bought with the dying woman’s credit card. The old woman never lived to collect her sweepstakes winning, dying shortly after the shoe charging spree.

Their business came to an abrupt halt when Tavoy and Lorindo were arrested by agents for Homeland Security in 2017. The two were convicted and sentenced to 51 months in federal prison on charges of fraud.

Then it got worse for Tavoy.

She was still in that twilight world between male and female, at least physically, when she went into the custody of the US Attorney General and was assigned to the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center, [the same place where notorious sex cult leader Keith Alan Raniere is presently housed.]

The Metropolitan Detention Center

The BOP had a problem. If you inspect her from below the waist, Tavoy is still a man. But if you check her out from waist to neck, she appears to be a woman.

From her face, it is not totally clear whether Tavoy is male or female.

Puzzled, BOP officials finally decided that because Tavoy had a penis, she should be housed with the men at MDC, despite her having, as a result of the hormone therapy and breast augmentation, a feminine shape and other female characteristics.

While in prison, Tavoy alleged, she was beaten and raped over the course of two months and was finally switched over to the women’s side of the prison, possibly being the only person there with a penis.

“I served the first five months of my sentence on the ‘male’ side because they needed some form of classification as it relates to my gender, although my documents state that I am a female,” Tavoy said.  “I was sexually assaulted by other inmates … it was very difficult. They didn’t move me over to the female side when the abuse initially happened but they did when the guys had started fighting over me and after my lawyer got involved.”

While still with the men, Tavoy requested to be placed in the segregated housing unit (SHU), rather than the general male population.

But, instead, she was placed in the general population in Unit I61.  While housed in the male unit, Tavoy complained multiple times to mental health treaters at MDC that she felt uncomfortable.  On August 17, 2017 at approximately 1:00 p.m., an inmate entered Tavoy’s cell and punched her several times in the head.

Tavoy, despite being the victim, was placed in the SHU for a period of time.

When her stay in the SHU ended, she was returned to Unit I61 and housed with a male inmate.  Tavoy was just too much for him to resist it seems and on October 11, 2017, between 10:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., he anally raped Tavoy.

Tavoy reported the rape to her case manager, and other officials and then she was transferred to the female housing unit.

Tavoy has commenced a lawsuit against the USA for the actions of the Bureau of Prison, to be paid for by US taxpayers in the event she wins.

“Only after plaintiff was assaulted and then raped did BOP (Bureau of Prisons) transfer plaintiff to a female housing unit,” the lawsuit said. “Even after her transfer, plaintiff continued to be subjected to harassment and intimidation by BOP correction officers.”

But things are looking up for Tavoy. She hopes to win a large settlement to paid by taxpayers, perhaps as much or more than she collected from seniors she was trying to help collect their sweepstakes winnings.

Tavoy said that today she is focused on acquiring a degree in Psychology and has found the Lord too.

“I have developed a stronger relationship with God,” Tavoy said. “I am not baptized as yet but I read my Bible every day and I make time for God. Back in the day, I was addicted to sex. It used to be my ‘go to’ drug. I am now more goal-oriented.”

Meantime Tavoy is seeking asylum in the US, arguing that she will face discrimination if she is to be sent back to Jamaica.

  • Way to go Kim you just told another writer of the Frank Report that their article is crap. You say it has nothing to do with Nxivm but the writer clearly lets the reader know that this transgender Jamaican lives in the same place that your prime suspect lives. Are you suffering from the coronavirus? Maybe a lack of oxygen is causing severe moodiness.

  • I have to say this is a very interesting article. Here we have another oversexed idiot who committed crimes against the most vulnerable people of society. I’ll refer to this un-American beast as “It”. It is a full-blown piece of shit. If the skin matches these drapes, your in for a stinky ride. “It belongs back on the mens side with all the other dicks. Drug addicts are the most manipulative people I’ve ever met. It just manipulated the people at MDC to get what it wanted. It admits to be addicted to sex, so what’s the big deal if it got fucked by it’s own kind? Just because, in Its delusional mind, it walks, talks and acts like a woman does not make it a literal woman. It has a penis for God’s sake. Good to know that MDC has co-ed housing. What’s next? Raniere finally admitting he’s a female trapped in a male body and requesting to be housed with the women?

  • O.R Genledmij- This is good news for your doctor, whom you will have to pay for HIV and herpes treatment.

  • I didn’t know that Kimmy Snyderman owned Frank Report either. Why doesn’t Kim have her own website dedicated to Kristin? Because she’s too busy complaining about another man’s website. Why does Kim say she has withheld evidence from the police? Why does she now claim she was the last to speak to her sister? Maybe Clifford told her to. Why is Kimmy Snyderman all up in Frank’s Kool-aid and doesn’t even know the flavor?

  • S/he certainly has created a most appalling karmic script for themselves. A cell-deep liar. Looks clumsy and phoney in the syntax and that should be a clue – you cant expect the territory to resemble the map right down to the nth degree, you cant make it do that, and all efforts to that end, would be ill-fated. I’m thinking of King Canute so sure he could make the sea be land. For this we have ceremonies full of pretence. Why didn’t he just put on a dress? why isn’t drag enough? My mother has actually gone through several stages of adoring Ella Fitzgerald to the extent that every family get together is incomplete without her dressing up as and giving us an Ella tune. This obsession began when she was young. My bro and I were imagining what would happen if she had the wherewithal to actually change race height voice etc, of course it would just be deeper and deeper mimic – a parody as opposed to a charming and quite entertaining homage.

  • Kim Snyder
    What the hell does this have to do with the NXIVM investigation? This has NOTHING to do with anything! Nothing!
    This was a space that you could have used to investigate my sister’s death- instead- you want to discuss something that has nothing to do with NXIVM!
    This is an outrage to Kris, to my family- who ever is writing this crap needs to stop.
    My sister has been left by the side of the road- by a man who made promises to my family- to do a complete investigation of her death- what has happened? He has written about the slime balls- the defendants I. This case- Keith & his minions. Then, he says he has information, but won’t share it. Secrets- excuses- etc.
    This is outrageous!!!!!!!! What a lot of drama this is!!!!! Frank why are you not doing the job that you promised mom & me- & the rest of my family?

  • These people are simply homosexuals with a serious mental illness. Go look at the suicide rates of those who have mutilated their bodies, the increase of those trying to reverse the damage they have done and those who have gone through it all who now speak out against it. You can not pick your sex, nor can you change it. The left created the word ‘gender’ because they knew they could not win an argument about biology. The leftist liberals have caused so much damage to society with their social engineering.

    And come on Frank, don’t call this freak ‘she’. Soon, we will here about ‘trans-racials’.

    • @thereisnosuchthingastransgender

      My mate who is married with a kid has changed his gender to female. My mate and his wife are still happily married. My mate is not homosexual and is only attracted to women.

  • According to the LGBT+++ Community, biological sex doesn’t exist and gender is a social construct, so how can we even have this conversation?
