NYC trans and HIV activist, 39, is arrested for ‘soliciting pedophile hunter posing as a 14-year-old boy on Grindr’: Asked him for oral sex and to meet up and do ecstasy ‘to feel horny’

  • Lailani Muniz, 39, a prominent New York transgender and HIV activist, was arrested and charged for allegedly soliciting a minor 
  • Muniz is accused of asking for explicit pictures from a 14-year-old boy on Grindr, who was actually a man working with the NY Creeps Spotlight nonprofit 

A prominent New York City transgender and HIV activist was arrested and charged for allegedly soliciting a minor on Grindr and asking him for oral sex. 

Lailani Muniz, 39, was taken into custody after corresponding with a man working with the NY Creeps Spotlight nonprofit, who posed as a 14-year-old boy named Josh on the LGBT dating app, Fox reports. 

Muniz, who identifies as female and is HIV positive, works as the Chief Operations Officer for the New York Transgender Bodybuilding Federation and was honored earlier this year at Bronx Borough Hall during Pride Month.   

NY Creeps Spotlight, which works to expose people who target children, posted chats Muniz allegedly had with the disguised man, who only identified himself as FM. 

The messages show Muniz wanted to have sex with the minor, offering weed and ecstasy to make him ‘feel horny’, and asked him for oral sex even after finding out he was underaged. 

FM got Muniz to agree to meet up with him in a video posted on YouTube last Friday, where the pedophile hunter confronted Muniz and called the police to arrest her. 

According to the criminal complaint, Muniz told the officers arresting her: ‘We did have a conversation before. It got sexual, it got racy, then we stopped talking for a while. 

‘We started talking again and I agreed to go and meet him. He told me to bring condoms.’

According to the chat logs posted by NY Creeps Spotlight, Muniz appeared undeterred to meet up with the minor after FM posted that he was a 14-year-old boy. 

‘Yea I dont mind,’ Muniz allegedly wrote in response. 

The messages also show she invited him to join her and others to do drugs in a jacuzzi. 

‘Its fun, we’ll be naked and it’s a nice size room. We can all get in the jacuzzi,’ Muniz allegedly wrote. 

‘I never done that I’m down,’ FM wrote back. 

‘We’ll have fun and we’ll have weed and maybe some E pills,’ Muniz allegedly replied, referencing ecstasy, promising it would make the minor feel ‘great and horny.’  

This is a developing story.
