APRIL A.C.E. NEWS

What an eventful month for ACE. In the face of government harassment we continue to grow in size and strength. ACE welcomes new members to our organization in the month of April. Our first non- Portland members hail from the tiny beach community of Rockaway Beach on the Oregon coast. Our Place Restaurant & Bar in the town of Raceway (about 20 minutes north of Tillamook on Hwy 101) recently added dancers on Friday and Saturday nights in the small town. Interested entertainers should call Mike @ Our Place Restaurant in Rockaway Beach OR 503-335-3344.

 

ACE was on the scene at the recent protest of Mr. Peeps adult emporium in Aloha. Claude Dacorsi, ACE President had some interesting conversations with the SIEGE anti-porn coalition members picketing the establishment. All I can say after speaking with religious fundamentalists is this- thank GOD we have a first amendment right of freedom of expression and ideas in this country! It worries me that our government and agencies such as the OLCC are influenced by moral minorities such as SIEGE. They have made themselves self-appointed morality police for Oregonians who have sent clear, repeated messages in the polls that they want to retain the right for themselves to decide what kind of materials and/or entertainment they wish to view. Just because a business features adult entertainment, gay/lesbian venues or caters to primarily African- American clientele (by featuring hip-hop music), dose not mean they should be exposed to OLCC or government harassment. Yet the evidence is clear that this is, in fact, happening.

 

ACE continues it's search for lobby representation in Salem. Hopefully our association with Oregon's Libertarian Party will provide the adult industry with direct political representation in Salem. Within the next few months it will be increasingly harder to process and pass laws which restrict adult entertainment and the peoples right to enjoy such entertainment.

 

ACE continues the court battles concerning the passage of distance laws in adult entertainment as well as the challenge to Oregon's protection of adult entertainment under the first amendment. We also announce the support of our minor entertainers who recently lost their right to work in an alcohol-serving environment. The OLCC, in a knee-jerk reaction to get rid of all minors employed as dancers, caused thousands of other minors working as musicians, comedians, actors etc. to be eliminated from their professions as well. The Musicians Union of Portland is considering a class-action lawsuit comprised of a variety of 18-21 entertainers who have lost income due to the OLCC's thoughtless reaction. Minor entertainers wishing to join in this class-action lawsuit may call the number below to get more information. You may be entitled to compensation for your lost income from the State.
