Mirken is a contributing writer for the San Francisco Bay Times, among other papers. Mirken, with a strong record of writing about the travails of gay youth, set out in June 1998 to interview a gay boy at a park in Sacramento, but it turned out the "13-year-old kid" with whom he had chatted on AOL was an overaged undercover cop. Mirken had been set up by the cops, who had steered the conversation on AOL toward sex, even though Mirken had not brought it up. On July 7 this year, during Mirken's trial, a judge threw out the case and Mirken became a free man again.
Mirken will be interviewed by Dan Tsang, host of Subversity. In addition to writing for the gay press, the OC Register has published an op ed piece of his on marijuana decriminalization.
