Woman with penis docked for raping two women in Scotland

Isla Bryson, a transgender woman, went on trial before Judge Lord Scott of the High Court in Glasgow, Scotland, and was charged with four offences.

Bryson, 31, of Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, formerly known as Adam Graham, entered a plea to two of the four counts.

Ms. Bryson is accused of raping two women, one in Glasgow’s Drumchapel in 2019 and the other in Clydebank in 2016.

Additionally, she is charged with advising the alleged victim to wash the linens in 2016 and threatening the woman’s family with evidence destruction.

The accused has filed special defences asserting the encounter was consensual and denies the allegations.

She also denies a further charge of punching the second alleged victim.

One of the victims told a court she was “so scared” when she was allegedly raped by a man who now identifies as a transgender woman.

Defence attorney Edward Targowski KC said his client will lodge a special defence of consent for two. 

The court heard in agreed evidence that Bryson now identifies as a transgender woman and was previously known by the “dead name” Adam Graham.

It was revealed a letter from the accused’s doctor, Craig Napier, dated August 5, 2022, confirmed that Bryon was “currently receiving the maximum recommended doses of Spironolactone and Finasteride” – a hormone prescription from Glasgow’s specialist sexual health service Sandyford Clinic.
