As much as I love queer partying in this town it can (after 10+ years) start to feel like the same night with the same white crowd over and over. Not so when queer cumbia comes to town. A night that has happened in spurts before is back with a Pride Edition reemergence that’s going to get the latin vibe back off the ground for real.
So bienvenidos a Club Culo, un reventon para maricones y tortilleras con DJs:
and, as always, Troubled Youth keeping it real at the door and on the floor.
And though I may have named Queerlandia my Thursday night pick I’m so glad it is around the corner from Culo cuz you know imma be there.

The reigning queen of queer hip hop dance parties in Portland is throwing it down for Pride with special guest DJ Troubled Youth joining residents Ill Camino (Mrs/Maricon/Sex Wave in SEA) and Ill Trill (Slo’ Jams) (and one can only hope poster gals from Broad City). One of the only safer spaces in town to get that booty bouncing and your urban jam on it’s the Friday night east side party to be at. Dude, not fragrance free just FYI so bring your cologne A game.
8pm, $5 before 10pm, $7 after

Doing Pride the Mrs way (you know, themes, my favorite) means Tom of Finland. So get out your best leather or sailor outfit (will I get to wear it again so soon?!) and giantest dildo because whether you were born with a member or no it ain’t no ToF…
Hostess (Kaj-Anne) Pepper Pepper will be there (with butch queen realness? I can only surmise) as well as special guest performer Dieana Dae who join residents Ill Camino and Portland’s biggest queer DJ BeyondaDoubt and photobooth maven Ally Picard.
HOW IT WORKS BBZ:
♥ LOOK FIERCE & HAVE FUN CHILDREN ♥
MRS is an queer event encouraging unbridled creativity & participation while we celebrate YOU, our community.
It’s not just about being the MRS, but about creating a visually expressive, fun, liberating nightlife experience for all of us homos.
How it works:
1: You vote on the themes that inspire you on our page facebook.com/MRS.PDX
2: You & your friends come dressed in your interpretations of that theme.
3: Get in that Bloodhound photobooth!
4: The MRS is chosen, gets a photoshoot with Ally
& basically receives a free party with guest list & drink tickets!
5: Repeat monthly
