Underbelly News
Downtown Eastside


Hi All!

Below I have posted comments which appeared about me on a gay message board run by Pink Triangle Press. Apparently, writer David Carrigg ran a short piece in the Province paper last Friday regarding the city studying the idea of hiring a homeless/sex trade advocate. In the piece, I stated to David that I hoped the city would do something about the Venus Porn Theatre since it subjects street girls to horrendous abuses. This one sentence comment has stirred the pot on the gay message board You see some gay guys attend the Venus and get their jollies sneaking peeks at guys with their dicks hanging out.

All I can say is those queens have way too much time on their hands!

FathomBleu 2/19/2005 9:43:30 PM Report to a moderator Jamie Lee from what I understand did try to open up many, many clubs.Why did they not get off the ground? Could it be low customer counts? Not having the proper permits? Not having a safe environment for those customers? Trying to open up a business by using shortcuts that ultimately did not work? No insurance? Not enough backing?I think she should really pick her battles with care, given from what I have heard from members that have gone to her Club Taboo nights.15 customers per event does not an event make.I assume that the VPD do monitor this site, good for them, as for the article with Jamie Lee, they probably just wanted some quick soundbite in a sense.

pinkcheeks 2/19/2005 8:31:27 PM Report to a moderator Before you crucify Jamie Lee for what she has "done to us", please review the diligent work she has done for the community overall. She has taken a lot of hit's, a lot, and is deserving of support. Would any of you put yourself out there as she consistently does? Bitch all you want but there are perameters we all need to uphold. Protecting those caught up in prostitution seems however distasteful to many, legitimate and worthwhile if we want the safety of our society to include us all. Start your own freaking club, Jamie Lee did over two years ago, were you there? Did you support that? Be mindfull of the alert yes of course, but be responsible as well. You don't think the VPD knows what this site is about...Don't take it for granted and stop pissing.stockingwhore 2/19/2005 3:48:25 PM Report to a moderatorThis know what I mean! Where is a good place that plays porn movies with lots of hard cock for a slut like me and Aimee? Kitten is gone, soon maybe Venus....we need a new porn theatre, liberal , open, club type, with gloryholes, dark rooms, maze, etc! Who will save this boring city and give it some alt lifestyle like any other "Big" City in the world. We need a new club/theatre!

tastemahcum 2/19/2005 4:53:45 AM Report to a moderator Do you think it might be all the gay guys that go there and openly and carelessly have sex in public and then post in on this service that might be stirring the pot. HMMMMMMM???????.

AimeeVancouver 2/19/2005 4:44:42 AM Report to a moderator Jamie Lee has stirred the pot at the Venus again... she claims the prostitutes are using the facilities there for their tricks...Friday's Province...From my source, the VPD Vice squad is monitoring this place closely and action will be taken soon at city council over the business license at the venus.... I hate to see people get busted for something stupid... VPD is doing so sting operation at the Venus... Beware.Aimee
