The irrepressible Blow Pony is back for a 7th year of queerupting Pride. Starting as GAY BASH back in 2007 BP is always crazy, controversial and boundary pushing. You can expect a lot of QUEER diversity, dancing, bonding, history, and unity on the dual dance floors. Homo Gogos, DJs Airick, Stormy, Kasio Smashio, Jenns Irish, and most of all headliner musical performance art queerdos Ssion.
But wait, the bill just keeps getting better and better with additions musical mavens Glitterbang and performance art and drag fiercers Double Duchess who last year had the energy to turn it out late into the night Saturday in San Francisco (which I saw in person) and turn around for Seattle’s Sunday fun (which I saw videos of as I lay hungover on Market Street concrete). Now that, my babies, is Pride dedication.

Note: This is already sold out. Crazy! And it’s a boat so that’s a pretty solid capacity. But maybe there will be a ticket contest somewhere or something? I’ll keep you posted.
When Portland gets get on the boat your trapped in the most wonderful way, partying on the high seas (or the Willamette, whatever) with host Carla Rossi, DJs Mr Charming (Gaycation), Kasio Smashio (Blow Pony) and Travis Blue (Ceremony). You’ll want to pay attention to performances by Pepper Pepper, Isaiah Tillman and Lulu Luscious. But the lady everyone will want to be closest to is RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 star Bianca Del Rio. And those of you who dig just a little deeper into your packetbooks will be able to chill with her at a celebrity meet and greet after deboarding.
$50.00 VIP (featuring a meet & greet, exclusive merch and a pass to Branx Pride w/ Sam Sparro at 8pm directly following the boat ride)
