Best Pride backup crew! Photo by Diana Edwards
So it’s been quite a week of reliving 2010. Truthfully I’m a little burned out. But before you shed all your summer skin and head into the depths of 2011 fresh and new here are a few last looks back at some of the “best” random sh** of the year…
Most asked question
What time is the dyke march? (A wink [...]
Johnny Weir at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver
I begin this year’s best of roundups with an unlikely choice: sports.

And even [...]
Cazwell (and some jocks?) plays Sunday
Thought you couldn’t fit any more in with the Portland Lesbian and Gay Film Festival along with Butch Voices? Well…you can try…

For most of the length of their pop punk career I snapped photos, carried around around one of their [...]
