A transgender female has been convicted of raping two vulnerable women whilst a man, after a jury rejected claims that the attacker would “never hurt another human being”.

Isla Bryson – who was previously known as Adam Graham – was found guilty following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow of carrying out two violent sexual attacks in 2016 and 2019.

Bryson transitioned after her initial court appearance, which took place the month after committing the second rape.

The verdict comes amid major controversy over transgender rights issues in Scotland, after the UK Government blocked SNP legislation that would have made it far easier for Scots to change their legal sex.

During deliberations over the Bill, Members of the Scottish Parliament voted down amendments designed to stop male sex offenders or those accused of sexual offences legally becoming women.

Supporters of the legislation branded the attempts as transphobic “dog whistles”.

However, a jury decided that Bryson, 31, had carried out the violent attacks whilst known as Adam and rejected claims that sex had been consensual.
