In a bit of very sad news today I received this message about Glenn Dugger, the original owner of the iconic Stark Street Triangle bar Scandals:
Sad to share that Glenn Dugger (born June 25, 1934) founder and original owner of Scandals passed away March 12, 2012 around 2pm. He will be missed by many, including his life partner Felipe in whose arms he passed- and it is important to note the role he played as a pioneer for many of us in Oregon!
Thank you for moving is forward, and providing us a safe space since 1979 – His life will be celebrated at Scandals Bar (1125 SW Stark St. Portland, Oregon 97205) the place he created for us and in his words “a place where we are safe from people who hate us…”
The celebration of Glenn Dugger life will be held on Monday the 19th, 2012 will start a 5:30pm…ALL are welcome! I share this, and ask you to share this with you networks by request of his loving partner Felipe…thank you!
