Emerging from an occasionally painful adolescence Portland is finally enjoying the freedom of young adulthood (and college parties, whew!) and there’s no better example of this than our catty but loving drag scene. This year saw one the introduction of a truly well crafted drag competition called Miss Thing and this Friday brings its outrageous finale.

Pride Friday is the new Saturday

Bearracuda at Branx/Rotture

Yeah, what’s up with Friday night this Pride? It is a doozy. I mean, I’ve had to work really hard to pare down my nightlife route and even so I’m still attempting 4 parties. Here’s to hoping someone has a special on Red Bull…

One Night Stand with Robo/Bogo – This one is going to be epic folks. Two promoters doing two kick ass parties for […]

Fun stuffz for the weekend! Ping pong, dancing, carnival, art, Beartown…

Spin Slayer!

Spin Slayer!

This weekend begins on Thursday – at least for gays and dykes in this queer, queer town, and this little guide will help you win it and not hit the net too early. So get your sweatbands on and pull on those short shorts, because it’s gonna get hot and sweaty! Not only is it Beartown 15 all this weekend, it’s also a grab bag of fun […]

New dance night “DO THE DARK” hits portland tomorrow

Do the DARK!!

Phew! Another dance night. My shoes barely get to cool down these days. But who is complaining when you get to DO THE DARK?

Indeed, after the demise of the fabu “FRUITCAKE”, do the dark is hitting inner NE this Thursday with DJs Count Fagula (FRUITCAKE) and Chelsea Starr (DOUBLE DOWN) . Cheap wells and $2 PBRs. No cover before 10pm, $3 after.

It’ll be at […]

Portland’s queer New Year

Kelly Moe will perform live at Fruitcake's NYE party

The craziness of New Year’s Eve parties, be they gay or less gay, is well established and usually find me in the safe confines of a cozy NE Portland bungalow. You would think that with this year’s economy that would be especially true. But alas, this year I will be swinging down to the inner SE industrial district to partake […]

Sunday: It’s PopTart tonight at Holocene!

Pop Tart Kittehs might show up too

Come out and shake your tailfeather with some queer girls (and other fine people)! DJ Nolita and Chelsea Starr will be on the decks, and there will be a signature $3 cocktail until 11pm.

The best way to beat this windy cold weather is to come out and have a dance! See you there.

21+, $5 (after ten pm, free before), SE […]

Go SPelUNKing and shake your rump this Friday

Get into some tight spaces at SPelUNK Friday the 13th

As usual there is no lack of queer parties for the weekend and this Friday the 13th, so soon after Halloween, should certainly be auspicious. My recommendations are SPelUNK at Red Cap (1035 SW Stark) and Fruitcake at Rumpspankers (700 NE Dekum).

In honor of being scared of (and excited by) the dark, Red Cap intends to plunge its […]

Zombies and bears and dancing…oh my!

Bearracuda returns to Portland Saturday

The beginnings of autumn may have put a slight lull into Portland’s queer nightlife as we all toyed with the idea of staying in, cuddling our snuggies, but I assure you this was a temporary lapse in judgment. We are still two weeks out from Halloween and already the weekend is packed with dress up dance parties.

Tonight’s monthly lady party, Crave, at Crush […]
