They used to quarantine (lacking the right word) prison gay men who pretended to be women with one another, unless, like Richard Speck, who gave himself crude implants in prison, had the time of his life as the prison 'lady' in general population.

Segregate is the word you're looking for. They do with cops, ex prison officers, elderly, disabled, famous, anyone who might be a target or extra vulnerable gets put with others like the them. They dont typically do the same for TIM inmates to my knowledge because they arent actually particularly vulnerable. Homosexual relationships among prisoners are common so "gay bashings" are very rare. TIMs arent physically vulnerable. Theres nit generally a reason to segregate them at all. But if its necessary for an individual or a group of course it can be done.
