QDoc 2010 spreads queer documentary love all weekend long

Portand’s QDoc is the only queer documentary film festival in the US (and one of two in the world) held annually at the intimate Clinton Street Theater (2522 SE Clinton). That’s pretty special. But not surprising for our hometown.

It’s also a great kick-off to Pride season to reflect on our LGBT roots before we start the party. Several qPDXers got the chance to screen some of these films and will be providing reviews in the next couple days. But the folks organizing the fest have put together a pretty fabulous preview on their own:

First up is director Michelle Lawler’s Forever’s Gonna Start Tonight, reviewed by Perry in a post that features 2 other drag features.  Lawler, an adorable Leonardo DiCaprio-looking dyke if I remember by 90s correctly, will be joined by her amazing subject Vicki Marlane at the opening night party following the screening. Hosted by the savory Scandinavian Broder and Savoy Tavern & Bistro, you can also enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages just steps from the theater. Merriment and music by Sneakin’ Out make this a perfect Thursday night soiree.

The other 2 features in Perry’s flix pix are Friday’s Drag King Extravaganza playing with Storme Delarverie: The Lady Of The  Jewel Box, which screen at 9pm.
