A woman is standing trial charged with allegedly raping a transgender man, who claims that he woke up and she was ‘doing s**t’ to him to the point he was ‘bleeding’, a jury has been told.
Natalia Marjorie Hanson is on trial in Brisbane District Court charged with raping the man in June 2020. She has pleaded not guilty to a single count of rape.
In texts to a friend, the trans man recounted Ms Hanson’s alleged act. The text, read to the jury on Monday, said: ‘I have a mate over and I’m on drugs.
‘I passed out, woke up, and she was doing s**t to me. I just went along because I didn’t know what to say.’
It continued: ‘Anyway, she’s gone rough. Like it was hurting to the point I’ve actually started bleeding. The first time that happened was when I was abused.’

‘The defendant encouraged (the man) to go to sleep. He fell asleep on a mattress on the floor,’ Ms Adams said.
Ms Adams said the man woke later woke up feeling ‘vaginal pain’ – allegedly finding Ms Hanson digitally raping him.
Ms Adams said the issue of consent was a key issue for the jury to decide in their trial.
‘It is you who must determine whether the evidence the witnesses give is credible and reliable,’ she told the jury.
