Midweek fun includes ladies arm wrestling for a cause, ga(y)me night and queer country dancin’

Can you be this tough for In Other Words?

Hump day in PDX is happenin’! So yeah, the actual cause for this Wednesday’s Ladies Arm Wrestling tourney is to raise funds for one of the country’s only remaining feminist bookstores, In Other Words, but it’s really a benefit for all of us that like to show of and/or swoon over some nice guns.

Weekly or monthly, neighborhood or downtown Thursday is a night for favorites Dirtbag! and Drop Shop.

Homomentum reaches stage 2 this Saturday with Timewarp Talent show

Homomentum's Timewarp Talent show this Saturday

Last month’s inaugural Homomentum installment was a freaky success and this sophomore expedition into our past this Saturday should be just as enjoyable. I can’t wait to see some mall hair, and stiff high bangs when the folks from Pants Off Productions bring on the Timewarp Talent Show.

This month’s performance pleasures include burlesque from Jodi Bon Jodi and Venus Envy, hip hop […]
