Walking While Trans: Interview with activist Monica Jones
Monica Jones is a LGBTQ activist, black transgender woman, and a student at Arizona State University. In 2013, Jones was arrested and charged with “manifesting prostitution” after she accepted an offer of a ride home from a police officer at a bar. The "manifesting prostitution" law is meant to criminalize anyone who intends to or appears to intend to solicit prostitution. What has been called the "walking while trans" law is often criticized for being ambiguous and opening the door to racial/gender profiling.
