WW: After completing this report, would you agree that Portland is lesbo central?
DP: Portland is known as a lesbian mecca, but it’s also known as a gay-friendly place. After visiting…the thing I take away from the gay community is that people are earthy and nice. That may be a stereotype, but it’s a very attractive stereotype as far as I’m concerned.
There are so many lesbians in Portland that there are enough to form clubs like the Femme Affinity Group (F.A.G. PDX) who have meetings and make zines to “create solidarity among femmes, promote femme visibility and combat femme phobia in the community at large.” You are correct, sir, it is a mecca!
