It’s a weekend for Lovers, Lezzers doing stand up, Bears and Booty Calls

Lavender Mirror

Thursday

Lovers benefit show – I love the combination of live music and DJs to begin with but when it’s also a benefit for a community member without healthcare its a triple win. Not to mention the lineup is incredible. Lovers are probably the best Portland queer band at the moment, (their last album was our number 1 of 2010), and Anaturale is some damn good hip […]

Friday’s re-introduction to Homomentum with its third season opener, Myths & Legends, was quite possibly the best one yet.

Results from the first annual Stumped Awards

Creepy Stumped award statues. Though I suppose the faceless Oscar is pretty creepy too.

This past Friday saw the first in what I hope is a long line of Razzie style awards for the best/worst in various drag and queer performance categories (and yes, I think Facebook posts do count as performance. Think about it). In a very unscientific survey that was released to the wilds of queer PDX […]

2 Girls, 1 Podcast episode #4: ‘Angels’ in review, politicians, celebs, bisexual penguins and the holidaze

This week’s episode of ranting by Lyska and Alley features gay penguins, male model Andrej Pejic in a bra, Rick Perry’s Brokeback ad, sci fri smackdown and more (including more making fun of Alley). Plus, a special anniversary message to my favorite aunt and uncle. You made it 30 years. […]

Tony Kushner’s epic play about the AIDS crisis in the 80s, Angels in America: Millennium Approaches, is all about juxtapositions, and the Portland Playhouse does this expertly. We wonder if the tropes presented in this production remain relevant and Director Brian Weaver’s 8 person cast proves […]
