On a spring day in 1997, a veteran porn actor, bodybuilder and strong-arm man named Paul Barresi picked up a supermarket tabloid and spotted a 24-karat opportunity. What caught Barresi's eye was an intriguing story about vice cops stopping actor Eddie Murphy just before 5 a.m. in a West Hollywood neighborhood known for its abundance of transgender sex-workers. Sitting next to Murphy in the front seat of his Toyota Land Cruiser was a gorgeous, 21-year-old trans woman from Samoa. "Eddie Murphy's Sick Obsession With Drag Queens!" shrieked the Globe. "H'wood Stunned by Superstar's Secret Double Life as Cops Catch Him With Transsexual Hooker."
In 1999, "The Bagman" won the runner-up prize for "Best Hard News Story" at the American Society of Journalists and Authors/Los Angeles Press Club Awards.
In 2558 stigmatisation for admitting preference to transgender women goes on.
