: April 2003:A.C.E.
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.
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,
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.
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.
