Perry’s Plethoric Pride Pantheon Redux – Portland Pride Weekend in Review

Gay Cat

Gay Cat

Wow – what a weekend. I don’t know about you, but I’m still recovering, and finding glitter in unexpected places. This year’s Pride was an amazing experience for me. Five nights, ten parties, two marches, and zero gay bashings or homophobic incidents (as far as we know). A vibrant, powerful and peaceful pride despite a lot of changes this year – to the Pride route, to […]

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

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 […]

The weekend kicks off tomorrow not only with the Tranny Roadshow but with Crave for the ladies Menz Room and Red Cap’s official Red Dress Pre-Party for the dudes, and Cuda Cabaret […]

Spring Fever begins at Thursday’s ‘Do the Dark’

Special appearance by DJ Beyonda

Though we’ve actually gained an hour of light at the end of our sunny spring days, dusk is still the witching hour for frisky queer gatherings. Organizer and DJ Freddie Fagula is feeling the spring fever, categorizing the beginning as last week’s Bent. With a crowded, sweaty dance floor and hot homos sidling up to one another I can’t say I disagree.

Start your week off right with Manic Mondays

So we’re all still sad that the holidays are over and, more importantly, that Fruitcake is breathing its last breaths. And to top it off, its Monday. Lame. Still, we have the chance to gaily celebrate once again the emergence of a new weekly (that’s right not monthly when the full moon hits or some other bs) queer dance night, Manic Mondays.

From the quixotic minds of DJs Freddie […]

Stuff you don’t want to miss this week

Unfortunately, I am out of town and will be missing most of these fabulous events. It also means that because of their sheer number I cannot preview all that I would like, but each are in the calendar and I want to give you a quick heads up on the ones you absolutely should not miss.

Tartdown and other Wednesday night happenings

DJ Automaton at the decks

Wednesdays are often quite a full hump day with the weekly Fame/Gay Pizza/Slice, and monthlies Lube Job and Gloss. But tonight also features a special mix of 2 of Holocene’s (1001 SE Morrison) dykiest nights. Tonight’s Tartdown is a celebration of Double Down and Tart as well as a going away party of sorts.
