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 […]

Pride 2009: Sunday & SuperGay!

It's Portland Gay Pride – Parade Time!

We’re nearing the end now folks! But there are still a few opportunities to get down and dirty and maybe even shake your tailfeather…

Sunday is of course the day of the Pride Parade, which starts *around* 11:15 – Sunday corner of Broadway and Davis and goes down to the waterfront/Tom McCall Park. Watch for float no #94, that’s us, yours truly! […]

Open Thread: Pride Week/End

It's Pride Time, thanks Colin for being my sideburn ambition

I’m starting off Queer Pride Week (I’m no longer saying Gay Pride…reclaim it queerbos) with a lot of coffee, leftover homemade Pizza for breakfast and kisses from a beautiful woman. And a bunch of mundane work. And trying to keep my shit together because there is so.much.to.fucking.do for QPDX.com this week. You?

Comment! What are you up to this […]

National News: CNN runs “front-page” story on gay immigration (in)equality

As a queer person, and as an immigrant into what is widely known as the “toughest country to get in to” in the world, I am constantly reminded of the inequality people face in this country who are involved in binational same-sex couples.I don’t have a Green Card, I am not allowed to work, I receive no government support, I am constant danger of my visa being revoked. […]

kegs, rugby and vagina wigs (a women’s rugby review)

Oy. I am definitely still in recovery mode from my stellar weekend at Maggotfest, the annual rugby festival in Missoula, Montana. In a 72 hour period, I spent over 18 hours in a car as the gracious DD to a wild and crazy group of ruggers. The drinking started in the car on Friday and didn’t end until we got back into the car Sunday afternoon.

rugby girls know […]

Gay monks behaving badly?

Not really a Portland issue per se, but this article about gay monks in thailand being reprimanded for wearing tight clothes and having flamboyant eyebrows made me laugh…

From the BBC website:

A Buddhist preacher in Thailand has announced plans for new guidelines aimed at curbing the flamboyant behaviour of gay and transgender monks.

The “good manners” curriculum – the country’s first – is being introduced in the northern […]

MUNCH: a new queer food column

Here at QPDX, we spend a lot of time munching on various things—salads, burritos, omelets, carpets (I can only vouch for myself here, although I have a feeling that the other writers here are equally suspect). Sometimes the world outside of the kitchen is pretty shitty. Research shows that there are things that you can stick in your mouth that will make you feel good. Sometimes you are hungry and there is nothing in the fridge (and alternately, no one in your bed). […]

STRUT 2009 lineup announced

STRUT is all about glamour, style, and an over-the-top celebration of our community’s talents, while at the same time supporting the work of the largest organization working to end discrimination based upon sexual orientation and gender identity in Oregon. Over the past 4 years, STRUT has featured some of the best of Portland’s designers, including “Leanimal” (the winner of Bravo’s “Project Runway” series in 2008). […]
