This weekend Touch Your Woman, be it with shopping, soccer, drag, music or Blow Pony

Soccer stars Abby Wambach (L) and Hope Solo of Team Lez (I mean USA)

Thursday

Momma’s Boyz | Kaylah Marin – The wide base of Bay area drag king competition leaves room for some breadth. So expect a nice dip into some old school hip hop and an urban vibe. And forget the usual lip syncing role. These Momma‘s Boyz belt it out of their own mouths. Add in […]

Portland Queer Music Festival announces lineup

Ever since Homo-a-Gogo left the PacNW for the shores of Cali, there’s been a little queer hole in our music festival scene (and not in any good way). Though it is only one day, the upcoming first of its kind Portland Queer Music Fesitval is chock full of gay goodness for your aural pleasure. The festival features a whopping 27 bands from 3pm to the wee hours and has just […]

Don’t forget about PSU Pride. You can also prepare yourself for the weekend by making sure everyone’s safe at the Q Patrol training. And of course don’t forget the weekly Portland Idol and Drop Shop afterword (which I think is still happening?)

Friday

PSU Pride presents Dawn of the Day of the Living Queer

Pride season is summatime, the season of short shorts and no more teachers, dirty looks. But colleges and universities love a queer too, so they start the season off early. And PSU’s week of LGBT Pride starts tomorrow with Dawn of the Day of the Living Queer. It has quite the lineup, (including li’l ol’ me with a tiny pile of last year’s stickers). It’s supposed to be a sunny […]

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.

Friday

A weekend of beauty parlors, homo talent, old school cafeteria and house parties and the chance to earn some booty

Last year's Homo's Got Talent winners Nicolette and Pony, aka, Art School Dropouts

Tonight

The Cafeteria at Vendetta – The inaugural lunch lady themed new gay night at my new local bar mere blocks from my new gay house! It should also be the perfect cool down from Last Thursday, and it’s, you guessed it, within walking distance. Lunch trays and crunk gays (and $1.50 Pabst) within stumbling distance? […]

Memorial weekend fun post

Let's get physical at Saturday's Leotard 80s party

If you’re not headed up to Seattle for Freakshow a gogo these are the places you should be this weekend:

Gay Volleyball Championships […]

Do your weekend right

Meghan Mayhem at last month's Cuda Cabaret

Besides the all weekend long Circus Artemis, which you absolutely should not miss, there’s plenty of other queer happenings worth dancing it out to this weekend. These are what I’m considering…

Tonight

The Gong Show – Bad Scene Productions brings you a 70s game show redux for the 2nd time to benefit outside in. Judged by The Mercury’s Wm. Steven Humphrey & […]

Play/Start, the Gay Deceivers, and The I’s take the stage at the E Room tonight (3701 SE Division) at 8pm. (you probably have time to make it downtown to dance afterwards…)
