If the one major stigma around transgenders is grooming kids, one would think activists would avoid bringing their movement down by getting caught soliciting minors.
That, however, is what New York Trans and HIV activist Lailani Muniz was allegedly caught doing.
Muniz reportedly made a date with a 14-year-old boy on Grindr, an LGBT dating app.
The boy, who was going under the name of Josh, ended up being an undercover worker for the nonprofit, NY Creeps Spotlight.
The report stated that Muniz started talking to Josh back in March.
Muniz was also allegedly made aware of the boy's age but still allegedly solicited oral sex from Josh.
When Josh told Muniz his age, Muniz reportedly responded, "I'm about to shower brb. Np.
"What u looking for and into.
"Are u cutting school and looking for company lol.
"Are u into guys and trans girls? Any xxx pixs."
At one point, Muniz expressed concern that it could be a sting operation, writing, "I can't front, I am nervous.
"I watch too much TV [because] I know you're young, it reminds me of that show To Catch a Predator where they set people up attracted to minors."
This is someone that was recently honored during a Pride Month celebration at Bronx Borough Hall.
