Best new club nights of 2010

ChiChi and Chonga at Cafeteria's Jocks and Nerds Edition

If there’s one thing we do well here at qPDX it’s partying. And 2010 has just blown us all away, and damaged our livers beyond repair, with its bursting-at-the-seams burgeoning club scene. Dancing isn’t just for downtown anymore. Nopo has emerged as a queer nightlife hotspot alongside the already club-friendly inner Eastside. There’s something for nearly everybody, and I did […]

This weekend you better ‘Work’ it in your ‘Hot Pants/Next to Nothing’ or just press ‘Play/Start’ on your winter ‘Gaycation’

Coco is kickin' it off this Saturday. Woot!

Thursday

Depending on which 90s you want to remember most this weekend you can start it off right with either the RuPaul inspired Work! featuring synth pop, new wave, cold wave, dark wave, goth, post punk, pulse music, italo (whatever that is) or the riot grrl listening party Rebel Grrrl at Sloans. Choose wisely.

Dining with the Divas ChiChi Chonga […]

A weekend of Andrea Gibson, fat fashion, ‘Primal Cuts’ of meat, ‘Gaylarious’ comedy and the get down

Andrea Gibson performs Saturday at the Q Center (my bad)

Thursday

The good news is that you haven’t missed her, but hopefully no one trudged over to the Q Center last night to see Andrea Gibson on my bad advice. She performs Saturday the 20th. Description below.

Primal Cuts a raucous book release – PDX gays might be known for veganism but I’ve also met a damn lot of […]

‘Homomentum’ is back so grab your ‘Cub’ and get ready to ‘Do the Dark’

Riley and Flo sport matching denim onsies at Dirtbag

Thursday

Weekly or monthly, neighborhood or downtown Thursday is a night for favorites Dirtbag! and Drop Shop. I’ll be swillin’ at the perfect little party that could in one of my favorite just big enough locations on Alberta St. Of course, don’t forget the first night of artsy schmoozing at the exciting and all ages Siren Nation festival, which continues […]

You (and your whole ‘Gayborhood’) better ‘Work!’, ‘Splurt’, ‘Bash’ or ‘Milk’ in preparation for ‘Night of the Living Trannies’ this weekend

sPLURt is hot and gross at the same time…but who didn't love the drugs of the 90s?

Thursday

Work! – Brand spankin’ new night at Plan B (1305 SE 8th Ave), last home of infamous Booty by DJ Gutter Glamour. It evokes that feel good gay 90s RuPaul anthem…so you better work! Oh and leave the drama for yer mama, cuz this ain’t no place for shade just really […]

Photos from last Thursday’s Dirtbag at the Know

It was this much fun at Thursday's Dirtbag

Someone had a little too much fun this week at my current favorite Thursday night party, Dirtbag. And Guttor Glamour graciously let me steal some really great DB snapshots for the qPDX photo gallery. The red lipstick is probably my favorite.

Beaches, Bag(dirt), Bent/BlueParrot, bonfire, bonkers? – A boisterous weekend review

DirtBag at The Know, Portland

DirtBag at The Know, Portland

Ok, so Thursday isn’t technically the weekend yet, except when it is! Last weekend the hottest weather we’ve had here in fair gayPortland, and plenty of us used this opportunity for suntan catchup, chillin’ at the beach. Here a little weekend review in case you missed some of it..!

Thursday saw the premiere of DirtBag! at The Know, which has moved from the […]

Start your weekend off right, Do the Dark, No Shade, Blow Pony

Rev your engines. The weekend begins tonight with the Do the Dark, my favorite new Thursday night hot spot with just the right size dance floor and cheap tequila drinks to feed my addition. Ill Camino, Trans Fat and a slightly wounded organizer Freddie Fagula will not disappoint no matter what.

Friday, you must emerge from the darkness into a stark No Shade policy. Brought to you by DJ Lifepartner […]
