Love qPDX? Join us for Pride 2011 and “MAKE IT HAPPEN”!

Help cover gay pride
Help cover gay pride needs you to "make it happen".

What is that big golden disc in the sky? OMG the SUN? This can only mean-we’re half way through the year already, almost. Pride time!

This year, Pride NW’s theme is “MAKE IT HAPPEN”.  You already know we do that every day of the week, but the bigger Pride gets (and my, does it grow), the more we need your help! Every year, we at do everything we can to bring you the freshest, savviest, and most organic queer news and events possible. That means doing everything at once, for us.

We need your help!

Welcome to the new design

Although we loved the artsy-ness of the previous site we feel this new design will be more flexible, easier to load, and look better on a range of browsers (I’m a bit of a Mac snob sometimes, I know…)

But, of course we are still working out the kinks, and want to hear your feedback on the layout, functionality, and especially any errors or weirdness you encounter.

Thanks […]
