What are the best of 2010? qPDX wants your opinion

DirtBag at The Know, Portland

Year end “best of” posts are already well underway, but I keep discovering more and more gems and I want to make sure I don’t forget anything. So I’m enlisting you, my queer brethren to lend me your opinions on the most interesting, appalling and appealing of 2010 in the categories of:

  • Most heated issues
  • Biggest local news
  • Best television moments
  • Best movies
  • Best albums


I’m willing to take other category submissions as well. I’ve been thinking of some local favs like the best new dance nights or most fascinating local personality but would that be “best of” overkill?

Lastly, on an only very tangentially related note we’ve been working on some technical upgrades to get you all more interactivity. How do you feel about classifieds, personals and forums? I’ve already heard some good feedback but which would you rather I implement first?

Comment early and often my friends!
