Ali Ay

Ali Ulas Ay, a violent male transvestite was convicted at Snaresbrook Crown Court on September 8, 2023 of sexually assaulting seven women between April 2019 and October 2021. He was cleared of 10 counts of indecent exposure because he exposed a prosthetic penis to his victims rather than his own penis.

Ay, 40, was sentenced to 20 months in prison, but this was suspended for two years; as is seen with so many other trans-identified male sex offenders, Ay’s crossdressing/trans status appears to have acted as a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card regardless of the number of women who have been hurt and terrorised by his depraved sexually-motivated offending over a long period of time. Ay was made subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) for eight years.

Newspaper reports indicate Ay was was charged with 10 counts of indecent exposure and nine counts of sexual assault on 31 March 2023. All victims were young women aged between 18 and 33 years old.

Ay approached the victims whilst dressed in women’s clothing, including tutus, fishnets and tights before exposing prosthetic male genitals and sexually assaulting a number of his targets. CCTV was used to identify the vehicle used by Ay which was traced back to his home address in Muswell Hill. When arrested in October 2021, police uncovered a number of items of female clothing and sex toys he was wearing or carrying during his attacks.

Melissa Garner, from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), said: “Ali Ay accosted his victims whilst they walked alone late at night in north London. “He wore women’s clothing to lure his victims and make them initially feel at ease in his company. He told them that he was gay and that they should not be frightened. He then took the opportunity to sexually assault a number of them.” See also the recent appalling case in Scotland where trans-identified male sex offender, Andrew Miller/Amy George, dressed in stereotypically female clothes/wig in order to abduct and repeatedly sexually assault an 11 year old girl. This calculated subterfuge was treated as an aggravating factor by the judge as the child would not have got into the car with someone she perceived as a man.

Ay’s arrest was featured in Series 4 Episode 6 of the BBC documentary ‘The Met’ first shown on 28 November 2023. In the prepared statement Ay gives to the police officers he says that he crossdresses and speaks to/touches his female victims ‘for fun’, bizarrely rationalising it as re-enacting how he imagines two females might interact with eachother on a night out. He also says that he has not exposed his penis to them because what they saw was a prosthetic penis he had attached to the women’s underwear he was wearing – i.e. he has zero insight into the fact that his victims are not having ‘fun’ and are being frightened and traumatised by what they are perceiving as indecent exposure and sexual assault by a man.
