- The recent raid on the Manhattan offices of the escort website RENTBOY.COM by none less than the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has sparked outrage, protest rallies in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and West Hollywood, and a renewed campaign for the decriminalization of sex work. When he was in New York late last year, "This Way Out's" STEVE PRIDE discussed the escort service, and sex work in general, with Rentboy's Chief Operating Officer, known in the business as HAWK KINCAID, who was subsequently among those arrested last month; "NewsWrap" reporter MICHAEL LEBEAU reports on the raid itself; and correspondent VASH BODDIE chats with the organizer of the protest rally in West Hollywood, DANNY CRUZ, about how the shuttering of Rentboy.com is affecting him and his fellow Rentboys.
