Michael Rajner (the Florida resident) wants to prevent men from cruising in public park’s restrooms. He has said that the problem needs to be solved immediately, because it already reached a boiling point.
Commissioner Julie Carson said that it’s a “very, very tough problem” and explains how she’s surprised that the city, with all of its resources, cannot stop the cruising.I am there regularly, five or six days a week, the days that its open, and the continual illegal activity is stunning.” In Florida cruising for sex, or cottaging, is illegal and South Florida Gay News reports that the city has taken steps to stop it. Partitions between urinals were built in restrooms but they were torn out by vandals. The city then built new, stronger partitions.
Public sex has been a concern for the residents and Rajner states that one woman had to scream at her son to stop him from going into the bathroom while it was being used for sex. Rajner was also behind the removal of gay hook-up app, Squirt.org’s, advertisements, getting them removed from the city’s ecobins.
