Lonely, leo, lesbian, looking for a lover. I am stuck in the FTM capitol where femmes are not desired. It is a requirement for lesbians to admire/envy men here, if you don't you're untouchable.

    Out Like That - event
    This is the one lesbian event to not be missed in PDX. It is the one time where everyone is in the mood to party and lower thier defenses. The upstairs rooms are busy. The music is better than I have ever experienced at a lesbian event. The vibe is great. This is a beautiful, well organized and classy event. Mel is an awesome vj/dj and it is largly because of her that this event came together. I wish that PDX's queer women with all of thier various identies could party like this all the time, but then the event shuts and disapears like a mirage. I also caught Bitch and Ferron playing at the Doug Fir. However, after the event, feminist lesbians vaporized. Never to be seen or heard from again.

    Queer women are not welcome
    My girlfriend asked for a Harvey Wall Banger, she got a crappy attitude and a weak Greyhound. The same drag queen that had assaulted me at Embers was making rounds there for Martigras. This club is in my neighborhood and there is no where to go if you are a femme lesbian in PDX. Boxxes connects to Red Cap. I went to Red Cap on Halloween. I met a lesbian in the bathroom who was upset that she had mistaken a man for a woman and felt sick. Not long after a man busted in the women's room and looked over each of the stalls. I said hey, what are you doing this is the ladies room and told him to get out. The girl came out and I was trying to console her by the sink. In rushed 3 men claiming that the one guy was told by his friend that she was going to do coke in the bathroom. The girl that I was standing with was ordered to leave. She did not know any of the men and she had not done coke. She was crying, so I helped her out the door. There we were told by the bouncer that we could not go back in. I explained that she just had to call her friends on her cell phone and if there was a place for her to stand. He said no, we went back inside and she had to try to call her friends in a room that was too loud to shout over. Luckly I she found her friends and I was there to help her. She was from Vancouver and if the guys there had their way, she would have ended up in a gutter. I have not personally been discriminated against at Boxxes or Red Cap. Occasionally they play some non-hip hop and it is a good place to dance and be invisible. It is not a place to hook up if you are a lesbian, women rarely go there. The men do knock you aside here. Still anything is better than the E-room, where femmes are hated.

  • Violent Drag Queen
    I was with my girlfriend about 4 tables away from the stage. It seemed as if the drag queens were looking into my eyes when they sang. I was dressed in a beautiful retro dress, and my girlfriend and I were cuddling. Suddenly a drag queen lashed out and walked over to us so that the spotlight was on us. She took her sweatty dollars and shoved them down my bra, leaving scratch marks on my chest. She shouted at me that I earned them and to get out of her club. I complained to management about the assault. They knew who the person was and they refunded my girlfriends and my money. I felt like calling the police, but I have seen Stonewall and did not want to start trouble there. I am still traumatised by the assault and now avoid the place.
