Press Accounts of False Arrests of Gay Men for Prostitution

The issue of entrapment/false arrests has been a source of outrage since it was brought to light by the press in October 2008.

On January 15, Queer Justice League along with the LGBT Center, the Anti-Violence Project, Urban Justice Center and others cosponsored a TOWN MEETING.

A followup meeting has been planned to develop actions in response to these arrests and other related matters.
