sPLURt is hot and gross at the same time…but who didn't love the drugs of the 90s?
Work! – Brand spankin’ new night at Plan B (1305 SE 8th Ave), last home of infamous Booty by DJ Gutter Glamour. It evokes that feel good gay 90s RuPaul anthem…so you better work! Oh and leave the drama for yer mama, cuz this ain’t no place for shade just really [...]
Big Freedia gets the sissies bouncin'!
Besides books, bikes and beer Portland, Oregon is also known for its local music. And the space between summer and fall is when we choose to put it center stage with MusicFest NW starting today and running through the 12th. There’s a smorgasboard of both local and out-of-town bands, DJs and performers and no lack of queers among them. Here’s where to find [...]

As exciting as it may be to have a little pre-gay pizza b-ballin’ in the court across from Portsmouth, I have to go with my nostalgic gut and make an appearance at the Rotture (315 SE 3rd) for Nolita’s much missed Fruitcake. Unfortunately, we lost this party to the open arms and venues of the Bay area, and they love it too. Thankfully, [...]
The crowd held up fingers to signify which contestant's booty they thought bounced the best.
I used to live a few blocks away from Porky’s and remember happening across the awesomeness that was Booty. Stars aligned last night as the old crew (now geographically scattered) hosted a fabulous reunion party complete with a booty-bouncing contest and double dutch jump roping! Check out pics here.
Be sure to catch Booty [...]
Meghan Mayhem at last month's Cuda Cabaret
Besides the all weekend long Circus Artemis, which you absolutely should not miss, there’s plenty of other queer happenings worth dancing it out to this weekend. These are what I’m considering…
The Gong Show – Bad Scene Productions brings you a 70s game show redux for the 2nd time to benefit outside in. Judged by The Mercury’s Wm. Steven Humphrey & [...]

This beautiful spring day has all the local queers riled up and ready to mingle. And we have many opportunities to do so. The weekend kicks off tomorrow not only with the Tranny Roadshow but with Crave for the ladies Menz Room and Red Cap’s official Red Dress Pre-Party for the dudes, and Cuda Cabaret [...]
Yes, the springing spring has brought us yet another queertastic dance extravaganza…because we all.just.can’t.get.enough… Yes, it’s Blow Pony‘s 3rd birthday this Saturday at Rotture (315 SE 3rd) and I will be in full regalia with my crew, but I am starting to get a bit wary of the night that seems to keep expanding in both good and less good ways. Are we going to burst at the seams? Has [...]
DJ Permanent Wave loves to sit on the lap of Christmas elves
With a dirty name like that, how could you not want to don your mustache, chaps, and prepare for a club night ride? DJs Permanent Wave, Yer Momm and Lucas take over Rotture (315 SE 3rd) tomorrow night and turn it into a Menz Room. But contrary to the more elite boy parties the “men” at this [...]

I have only heard that the weekend started off right with Red Cap’s Bootie mashup party on Friday. Alas, these old bones needed at least one day of rest where I remained in my own neighborhood to attend a mellow house party. But I did make it out the following two nights starting with [...]
On Sunday night if you find your self Valentine-less or just want a fun spot for you and your homo hubby, come to Rotture for HEARTHROB! There will be DJ’s, slow jams on the hour, card making and secret crush! Then… if you feel like nursing your bloody hangover… Mondays are QUEER at Slabtown. Join DJ Girlfriends and DJ Rainbow Bridget Monday night from 9 til ??? And with 3 [...]
