Holiday cheer for queers

What are the events and performances that will get those holiday engines revving? I’d start the holidays off with the King of Raunch myself. That’s right, the man with that creepy little mustache will be in town this Friday the 16th with a special John Waters’ Christmas. The Yule log will be lit at Dante’s (1 SW 3rd) at 7p dinner, 8:30 stand-up. Sadly, Waters’ most queer of characters, the tremendous and dramatic drag queen, Divine, will have to miss this special day. RIP dearie. We miss you so.

For a frenzied holiday performance, check out one of the cutest lesbian couple performance pairs ever, These ladies will be all over the place in a Do Jump! performance that includes trapezes, dance and clowns. The little ones will love it. Energetic fun for the entire queer-friendly family. At the Echo Theatre (1515 S.E. 37th Ave at Hawthorne) through Dec. 23rd. For tickets call 503-231-1232.

For that feel good story with an odd one (gay) man twist check out Portland Center Stage’s This Wonderful Life at PCPA’s Newmark Theatre (1111 S.W. Broadway). For tickets call 503-274-6588. The show runs now through Christmas eve.
