The location of the unlawful assembly happens to be the exact same area where fights broke out between protesters at a demonstration over trans-rights two weeks ago. A group of demonstrators gathered outside a Koreatown spa on July 3 after a viral video showed a woman being upset that a person who identified as a female but had male organs was allowed to disrobe in the women's section of the business.
