Princeton Grad-LGBT Activist Arrested On Child Abuse Content Charges

A well-known LGBT advocate, Trey Farmer, linked to Princeton University, has been apprehended and accused of possessing child pornography.

Roy “Trey” Farmer, aged 53, a prominent LGBT activist, faces one felony charge of possessing child sexual abuse material, as per the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.

He was apprehended at his condominium in Princeton, situated just opposite the primary entrance of the Ivy League institution, on Friday.

Farmer, a Princeton graduate from the class of 1993, had been actively engaged with the university community, arranging events and overseeing alumni organizations.

He held positions as president of both the Queer Princeton Alumni Group and the Princeton University Glee Club Foundation. Additionally, he served as vice president of Princeton’s Bisexual, Transgender, Gay, and Lesbian Alumni organization.

In a profile published on the school’s alumni website in 2022, Farmer expressed gratitude towards the alumni and students for constantly motivating him. He credited his life and career accomplishments to his experiences at Princeton.

The profile highlighted Farmer as a “piano prodigy” and noted his recruitment by other prestigious universities. He holds master’s degrees from Yale and Harvard, as stated in the profile.

According to his personal website and the New York Philharmonic’s website, Farmer is a board member of the New York Philharmonic, and he claims to have established the New York Philharmonic Pride Alliance.

Farmer also managed businesses in the United States and overseas and organized art festivals, including the StayInMay Festival in Naples, Florida, which supports children’s programs. He splits his time between Florida and Princeton.

The prosecutor’s office began investigating Farmer in January after receiving a tip that someone in Mercer County had shared material depicting child sexual abuse. The material was traced back to Farmer.

Princeton University redirected inquiries regarding Farmer to the prosecutor’s office, as reported by NJ.com.

The investigation was initiated following a tip received by the prosecutor’s Internet Crimes Against Children unit, with information provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Various law enforcement agencies collaborated in Farmer’s arrest, including the county prosecutor’s office, the Mercer County Tactical Response Team, and Homeland Security Investigations Trenton.

A search warrant was executed to seize “multiple items of evidentiary value,” according to the prosecutor’s office.

Farmer was detained at the Mercer County Jail awaiting a detention hearing scheduled for Wednesday at the Superior Court of Mercer County in Trenton.

The prosecutor’s office intends to argue for Farmer’s detention pending trial.
