Hudson, 26, who has lived all her adult life as a woman, was jailed for headbutting a bar manager and locked up with male prisoners. But the make-up artist, who is still legally a man, told an appeal hearing she had suffered frightening taunts over her gender - including chants of Tara, Tara, show us your t***. A judge at Bristol Crown Court dismissed her bid to be released from jail but said the prison service should conside

A court heard Hudson has been separated from the rest of the prison population and locked in a cell 23 hours a day. Mr Wragg said: The clang of a prison door should never be pleasant. It should have a sobering effect on a person. But Ms Hudson has had an awful time - she has found it

unrelenting and frightening.

Support: Friends and family of Tara Hudson, arrive at Bristol Crown Court (Image: SWNS) Family backing: Taras mum Jackie Brooklyn at Bristol Crown Court (Image: SWNS) Hudson, who has eight previous convictions including offences for battery, had hoped her punishment would see her placed on an electronic tag and made to undergo an alcohol awareness course. Mother Jackie Brooklyn, 48, said outside court: Nobody would know the difference. She looks like a woman. Shes gorgeous. Ms Brooklyn added: “She is being treated terribly. “She has had so much transgender abuse and that hasn’t been taken into consideration. She is distraught, very distraught.” She said her daughter would be safer in a female environment. A petition calling for Ms Hudson to be transferred to an all female prison attracted more than 125,000 signatures ahead of her todays hearing. It said: We, the undersigned, stand with Tara and her family and

believe that this decision is in breach of her human rights, and places her in extreme danger of abuse, sexual violence, and even death. Her barrister Mr Wragg told an appeal hearing that Hudson had suffered from psychotic symptoms since 2009 - and highlighted a Probation Service report saying that a custodial sentence would have a detrimental effect.
