Update on P-Club

Well it is over!

I wanted to give an update on our P-Club issue. Now Cassandra got a call from our Attorney the other day, now we are still waiting on official word on this but what we have heard is this. After Chris Penner lost he planned on appealing to the Oregon Court of appeals. Now he had not done anything as far as appealing so in May the state seized his bank accounts which caused him to have to close the P-Club. Well it turns out he has asked for 3 extensions on filing his appeal so it has been almost a year now. Now what we are hearing is the other day his Attorney finally filed the paperwork with the appeals court but it was after the his last extension had run out and he had not asked for another extension or contacted the court saying he needed more time so the court ruled that because he had not done anything during all that time nor notified the court or asked for yet another extension that the case is closed. In other words if this holds true the case is all over and we won and there is nothing he can do, he can no longer appeal so the judgment stands. We may never see any money but the ruling is worth way more. We are a little disappointed that it ends without an appellate judge ruling but still a big victory.

Here is a little history of this event.

In June 2012 Chris Penner left two voice mails on Cassandra cell phone informing us he did not want us to come to his bar because people thought it was either a gay or transgender bar and that was not what he wanted.

In July 2012 we met with an Attorney and investigators from BOLI (Bureau of Labor and Industries) thinking we would be filing a suit against Chris Penner. The attorney Beth Allen wanted to take our case on and the People from BOLI informed us that the commissioner Brad Avakian wanted to file the complaint in his name and use us as witnesses so we agreed.

In October 2012 BOLI found that we were discriminated against in violation of law.

In May 2013 we had two days of hearing in front of a judge on this case.

In August 2013 we found out the judge ruled in our favor and we were once again interviewed.

In July 2014 informed Chris Penner failed to file an appeal on time after several extensions. He can no longer appeal and the judgment stands.

Saturday BBQ party hosted by Julie and Trixie

Well Saturday afternoon Julie and Trixie were having a BBQ for our group at 3 pm and I was really looking forward to it. I had planned on leaving home by 2 or shortly after but I ended up taking longer to get ready, spent a little more time on my eye makeup so it was about 2:40 when I left so I knew I would be fashionably late. Now it was going to be a hot day upper 90’s and we would be outside so I wore my short white skirt and a cute little top to try to stay cool.

It took me about 45 minutes to get there so I wasn’t as late as I thought I would be. Trixie has a beautiful house and yard and it was set up so nice with several tables and all kinds of snacks and drinks. There were already about 10 girls, Blair, Shadow, Amber, Julie, Trixie, Sandy, Brenda, Victoria S., Victoria N., and Carolyn. They were all crowded under one of the umbrella’s over by the trees in the shade. We sat and talked trying not to expend too much energy in the heat.

More girls showed up, Cassandra, Jan, Lynn, Barb, Petra, Michelle, Cristine, Bobbie, Kim, Joan, Sophia, & Lorna. We talked more and then it was time to play some games. Julie and I played Petra and Victoria in a game of Bocci. Actually Victoria S. started the game and Victoria N. finished it. Julie and I started off great and we were up by 7 before Petra and Victoria scored and we ended up winning 11 to 1 scoring 4 points on our last throw. Now Bocci ball is not a real physical game but when it is in the mid 90’s and you are in the sun shine it doesn’t take much to start getting hot and of course I was worried about my makeup.

Next Julie and I played Michelle and Kim and we got off to a good start again but that was all. Kim and Michelle seemed to have the touch this game and soon they were ahead. Now none of us were really in any hurry as it was so hot out but we had a wonderful time playing and in the end Kim and Michelle won 11 to 7. In a way Julie and I were glad we lost as it let us go back and sit in the shade and have something cold. Kim and Michelle finished as the undefeated champions of course as hot as it was no one else wanted to play so these were the only 2 games played.

Now Julie and I both had our cameras out getting pictures to post in our group. I must have taken 25 pictures and in all those only 2 with me in the picture. This is me with our beautiful Host Julie. Now this was after I had been here for a couple hours in the heat so I am amazed my makeup looks as good as it does.

Well Julie and Trixie started cooking the meat on the grill and it smelled so good and we were all getting hungry. It was time to eat so we all got around the tables and we had to move some of them into the shade as it was still really hot out.

The food was so awesome and we all ate way too much. Kim, Cassandra, Joan, and I sat at one table in the corner between the garage and house. We were in the shade but we got no breeze being in the corner but we had a great time. After we ate Trixie brought out this huge chocolate cake that was so good. I am so glad I had seconds on the other food as I was just too full to have a second piece of cake.

Robyn finally showed up and it was great she could make it. We sat around talking for a while more and as it was finally cooling off which was nice. It was a wonderful afternoon and evening and so nice to see so many girls out. It went by so fast and soon it was after 9 and I had to be leaving which is always sad.

I want to thank Julie and Trixie for such a fun day and for everything they did to make it such a wonderful day, you two rock.
