tengupriestess: PortCon 08?

So it recently came to my attention that PortCon 08 is being held at the Eastland Park Hotel.

Not to rain on anyone's cosplay but the staff at the Eastland are a bunch of bigots; I was treated harshly, humiliated and then fired illegally all after my boss found out that I'm Wiccan.

Just thought you all should know who you're giving your money to.

One of the evils of McCarthyism is denying someone a living because of what they believe, please urge Julie to hold it somewhere else!

I lived in Portland for 3 years.

I know the lengths Julie goes to to plan each Port Con, I sort of know her personally. All the more reason I'm a little surprised she would pick that place.

I'm not actually suggesting a full out boycott, I just think people have a right to know what the Eastland is all about. It's entirely up to them what they do.

Well, it could very well be the only facility in the Portland area that was available for that time period. the 7/4 holiday is rather big in Portland as you probably know.
