A pair of female LGBT activists who worked as elementary school teachers in Chattanooga, Tennessee, were recently cited for illicit prostitution following an undercover sting. Both lesbians allegedly told police they needed to sell sex and otherwise they would "starve."
Ezra Fry, 22, and David Acevedo, 25, both worked as substitute teachers in the Hamilton County Schools district.
Fry's now-private Instagram lists her as "Rabid Queer, Gender Anarchist, College Dropout."
Hamilton County Schools spokesman Steve Doremus told WTVC-TV that Fry, a substitute teacher contracted out by Education Management and Staffing solutions, hasn't worked in Hamilton County Schools since August.
The New York Post reported that Acevedo's account, also now private, lists her as "Trans, Disabled, Queer, Puerto Rican, ExEd Teacher."
Acevedo worked as a special education teacher at Calvin Donaldson Elementary, part of the Hamilton County Schools system. She was suspended without pay on Aug. 29 pending an investigation.
The sting was conducted on Aug. 25 and 26 in the Chattanooga area as part of an operation involving the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Human Trafficking Unit, the Tennessee Human Trafficking Task Force, the FBI's Safe Streets Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations, the Chattanooga Police Department, the Office of 11th Judicial District Attorney General Coty Wamp, and Grow Free Tennessee.
According to the TBI, "Authorities worked to rescue potential trafficking victims, while identifying those engaged in trafficking, promoting, recruiting, or soliciting others for the purpose of commercial sex."
Five "men" were arrested and/or cited as result of the sting.
Acevedo and Fry were both reportedly charged with simple possession, unlawful carrying or possession of a weapon, drug paraphernalia, and prostitution or promoting prostitution.
A police report obtained by WTVC indicated that an officer posing as a "john" made contact with Fry "via an illicit prostitution website" to set up a sexual encounter. Fry, who calls herself "non-binary," allegedly explained what she would and wouldn't do and how much it cost, pricing her wares at $150.
Fry allegedly invited the officer back to her house on Orchard Knob Avenue, claiming it was safer because her "husband is here," referencing the presence of Acevedo.
After an exchange of cash in the bedroom of the transvestites' house, the officer identified himself. With the help of other agents, he detained both teachers. Inside the residence, police reportedly found "a large amount of drug paraphernalia" as well as a revolver.
The police report indicated "both parties advised officers that they are Special Education teachers at Woodmore Elementary and Calvin Donaldson Elementary. During an encounter with an officer, Fry stated, 'I don't care, everyone has seen my [private parts].'"
The report further indicated that Fry said she had been "engaging in this activity for several years as a way to make money."
Both LGBT activists reportedly told police "they have to do this or they will starve."
