Gearing up for Pride

The joy begins this month folks. I believe queers can claim all summer but June is certainly Pride month in the states. Portland’s own weekend of debauchery will be Sat/Sun June 17th/18th with my birthday following in a mere 4 days! That is cause for celebration. But while all that may be a coupke weeks away, the days leading up to Pride also have a few things going on. Our own queer community center, the Q Center, has some particularly interesting mixes of family fun and lascivious Tupperware parties.

This Sunday, June 11th, from 3-5p is family fun day at the center, promising to turn the whole place into a playground. (How they’re going to squeeze in the monkey bars I just don’t know). What might be even more fun for naughty housewives and husbands may be the Dixie Longate Tupperware party and show later that evening at the next day.

Besides new, highly inventive uses for Tupperware, you’ll learn all about Dixie’s life, from her tragic descent into drugs, sex and prison to finding her calling selling “plastic crap” to her star turn at Jubilee, Tupperware’s annual gala awards.

Shows are Sunday the 11th at the Q Center 7:30-9 and at the Jupiter Hotel the Monday the 12th from 8:30-10, will a DJ hosted afterparty. Best yet, 100% of the proceeds for both shows go directly to Q Center. Selling Tupperware really can pay the bills.
