Celestial Clockwork: A Movie Overlooked

This is a strange one…

Hey, I missed you guys! Due to the dedication to the new QPDX Podcast, 2 Girls 1 Podcast, I’ve been a little busy of late. However, I love writing about movies, and little could keep me away from this blog for long.

Celestial Clockwork, made in 1995 by Venezuelan director, Fina Torres (Oriana and Woman on Top), is one of the stranger movies I’ve […]

Photos from the Portland Dyke March

Pride weekend may be winding down but that just means it’s time for more pictures! You might have to wait a bit for the actual Pride Parade photos but it’ll be worth it ebcause they’re being handled by a real professional photographer instead of me. Yay! But here’s shots from last night’s Dyke March, which was actually pretty well attended, despite the rain and the eternal question…what time is the […]

Girls in Uniform… the original!

Teacher’s pet, I wanna be teacher’s pet…

The school play is a vehicle for her true feelings…

Mädchen in Uniform, one of the most important films of all time, is lesbionic. Made in 1931, it’s an artistic commentary on fascism and queer love. The movie is set in Prussia, and illuminates a young lady name Manuel, who is a new student at the world’s harshest all […]

Lesbians and other teens less likely to attend college according to new study

"Fitting In, Standing Out: Navigating the Social Challenges of High School to Get an Education"

A new study out of the University of Texas at Austin has just released a study announcing that teens who “don’t fit in” are less likely to attend college. That made me somewhat of a “duh” conclusion, but what might be even more interesting that that two groups who are at particular risk […]

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 […]

Perrywinkle’s Plethoric Pride Pantheon – a review

SuperGay stampedes for Rainbow Truth

Wow, thats all I can say. Wow 1: I can still come up with a meaningful alliteration after this weekend, and wow 2: Portland Queer Pride 2009 was AMAZING.

A year of firsts: The first time QPDX.com has had their own parade “float”, the first year there has been 110+ groups in the parade, the first time SuperGay had a proper outfit, the first […]

Is the Obama administration abandoning it’s promises to LGBT Americans? (and immigrants, too)

Obama – Don't support the DOMA. Equality for queer people NOW

Well…

Backto reality. The comedown is here, personal and political, small scale and large scale. While we are still dealing with the shambles left behind of a fantastic Pride, we are also hearing about gay bashings of queer/trans people here in our fair city and community. And now this- it seems that the Obama administration may be “rethinking” […]
