Gay days at MusicFest NW

Big Freedia gets the sissies bouncin'!

Besides books, bikes and beer Portland, Oregon is also known for its local music. And the space between summer and fall is when we choose to put it center stage with MusicFest NW starting today and running through the 12th. There’s a smorgasboard of both local and out-of-town bands, DJs and performers and no lack of queers among them. Here’s where to find […]

Blue Parrot changes hands, still home to queer dance night BENT

I had this foggy notion i went BENT at faggy nation!

It hasn’t been long since the Blue Parrot first fluttered it’s way into many a Portland gay’s party calendar. A little off the beaten track and tucked away pretty far up north, no one could predict that this local neighbourhood bar would turn into the party location motivating deepest SE bound queers (me) to hoof on up north.

GAYCATION turns 4!

funner than this

One of Portland’s favourite queer nights, gaycation, is turning an amazing, post toddleresque total of 4 years old! Given the short lifespan of queer nights in this city, we’re very happy that Gay Cay is around and going stronger ever.

Come celebrate with Mr Charming, DJ Snowtiger and special guest KIM ANN FOXMAN (of Hercules & Love Affair). Expect tunes that will keep you on the […]

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 […]

Tomorrow Night: Get Your Gaytriotic On @ Gaycation

BOYJOY and DJ GIRLFRIENDS are special guests!

It’s time to get out your best, most gaytriotic partywear and saunter down to Holocene for some of that yum, yum Gaycation Fruit Flavour!

This is truly a special GayCay, featuring DJ’s Snowtiger and Mr. Charming, along with up-and-coming pop hunks BOYJOY. We love BOYJOY since we first saw them at the Athens Boys Choir gig @ Dunes! One third of BOYJOY, […]

Tonight: Double Down @ Holocene

Double Down makes for a nice pillow too, ha!

Another opportunity to have a ruckus good time this weekend is to head to Holocene on Saturday night for Double Down, which will no doubt be the gathering place for everyone who didn’t head out to Seattle or San Francisco! $5, DJ’s and dancing, drinks and debauchery.

Water guns? Dancers? Lube Wrestling? Crave.

This past weekend saw a stretch of intense partying for at least 2/3rds of your QPDX crew, so pardon us while we recover momentarily and start summing all of this weekend’s great events for you! Starting off the night on Friday was Portland’s newest lesbian dance night-CRAVE.

Crave – Monthly lesbian dance party at Crush

I had a chance to stop by on Friday and speak with some of […]

lube wrestling @ crave friday night, april 17th

There’s a lot going on tomorrow night! But there’s also lube wrestling. Wrestling drunk people all lubed up might be a little messy, but the owner of the bar assures me that the wrestling pit will be in a contained area. You will still be able to dance if wrestling isn’t your thing.

Crave, the monthly queer ladies dance party at Crush will feature three things dear to my heart. […]
