For decades Malcolm X Park has been a popular cruising area for Gay men, mostly men of color. Since August 2018, US Park Police have been entrapping and arresting Gay men there, using 1950's style tactics including directly propositioning their targets.

It has the potential to lead at any time to violent confrontations beyond what police expect, as they found to their sorrow on June 28, 1969.
