The Oregon Board of Labor is currently investigating a North Portland bar after the owner asked two trans women to stop coming. According to Cassandra Lynn, she and her friends have been visiting the bar on Friday nights for two years. Lynn received a voicemail from the P-Club Bar and Grill’s owner last month claiming that the perception of the establishment as a gay bar was hurting business.

KBOO’s Zeke Harrington spoke with Sasha Buchert, communications manager at Basic Rights Oregon, for more on the story.
