After Almost 40 Years, Portland gay nightclub CC Slaughters is closing

The CC Slaughters nightclub, long an institution within the Portland gay community, will be closing in October, according to a post on the club’s Facebook page.

The post says: “To our friends, our family and our guests from near and far, it saddens us to inform the public that as of Sunday October 11th, 2020, CC Slaughters Portland will be closing. We’d like to take the opportunity to thank you ALL for 39 amazing years of drinks, dancing, drama, and fun! Unfortunately 2020 has been very hard on small businesses everywhere and we are no exception to the hard times we all are experiencing. We hope we can open our doors again to you (our family) sometime in the future, but until then, please be safe, practice social distancing, and take care.”
