"EXCLUSIVE: Buechel residents oppose so-called 'social club''

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- More than 200 people came out to Bon Air Library on Tuesday night, Sept. 24, to oppose a so called social club named Fringe Elements. Its board of directors maintains it’s a social club that is an asset to the community.

“We do classes on everything from finding out what your gender identity is and how to deal with that, as well as how to deal with yourself and the community as it changes and its expression of sexual identity changes,” Jacki Guilford said.

They are currently leasing a space on Buechel Avenue where their club meets mostly after 6 p.m., but they are facing a zoning violation. The property is not zoned for commercial business. The operators describe their club as a community center, but neighbors in the area call it a sex club. Their website allegedly promotes what some would call explicit events. A recent one, in part, was titled “Clothes Get in the Way.”

One resident brought it up during the meeting referring to the rest of the title, “A naked intimate performance.”

“He was naked,” Assistant Director Kenny Evans said.

He said that they are not an adult entertainment establishment and do not offer or engage in sex.

Residents aren’t buying it and will be voicing their concerns throughout the re-zoning process. The desired change still needs to be considered by the Board of Zoning Adjustment. The process could take months.
