Trans woman Yaya DeCloud, 42, spent the first 19 years of her life living in a commune ruled by religious extremism and cut off from society by her cult leader father.

Living in the compound of 30 people known as the ‘DeCloud family’, they rarely ventured out into the wider community as their lives were dictated to them by Yaya’s own father. Nelson DeCloud, 73, was a former police officer and spiritual leader of the group which he used to satisfy his own sexual urges, using religious manipulation to retain control.

Sentenced to a 220-year sentence for kidnapping, felonious restraint, rape and forcible sodomy, DeCloud died in the Southeast Correctional Center, Missouri, in 2014. But before his death, he’d managed to continue his manipulation from behind bars.
