Well, this sucks: Robyn's appearance in Portland postponed due to Baba Wawa's The View


News
Celeste emailed this to me. Then I talked to the publicist who confirmed it. The much anticipated Robyn show at Berbati's next Tuesday has been postponed UNTIL AUGUST! Seems Robyn has to go on the boob tube and talk to the batty old broads on The View. That's means both her Portland and Seattle shows are being rescheduled. As soon as I find out what the date is you'll be the first to know. Until ...   More

OMG!!! Chelsea Clinton to Hit Local Lesbian Bar Next Tuesday

Chelsea will be collecting ballots alongside out and very proud recording artist Sophie B. Hawkins. Where will they be doing all this? Well, the Egyptian Club (aka the E-Room) of ...   More

Gay vs. Not Gay: Is Portland Outdoor Store Adjusting to its New Neighbors?


News
Waltzing down SW 3rd Avenue I noticed something new in the window of The Portland Outdoor Store. The traditional western wear and equipment shop, which has catered to Oregon cowboys and cattlemen for over 75 years, had what looked like a new advertisment for jeans tucked in between the hats, boots and other country-living classics that fill the windows of its old-school store. It was an ad for ...   More

WTF? Domestic Partner Rights Opponents Get a Fast Pass from the 9th Circuit Court


News
What's a decent, law-abiding queer couple to do? Looks like the failed referendum against Oregon's domestic partnership law is getting the equivalent of a "quick pass" by the 9th Circuit Court. What does that mean for gay couples like me and my partner who already have enjoyed the benefits of our domestic partnership? We could get fucked over big time come fall. Here's what Basic Rights Oregon ...   More

EXCLUSIVE Isn't It Romantic? Pink Martini Records with Piano God Michael Feinstein


News
It's been rumored to be in the works for a while now, but it has finally came to pass: the much-anticipated pairing of Portland's Pink Martini and one of the world's most popular interpreters of classic American pop music—and perhaps NYC's most celebrated cabaret singer—Michael Feinstein. How do I know? I was there. Well, I wasn't at the actual recording of "How Long Will It Last," ...   More

May Day's 1st Thursday never looked so fuzzy: Nicole J. Georges


News
Could Nicole J. Georges be any cuter? Possibly, but highly unlikely. This spectacle-wearing illustrator (she hand-draws unicorn-themed comics and fliers for all sorts of PDX events), zine-maker and animal-loving “pet portraitist extraordinaire” (my Chichi could be drawn wearing a crown or a wig and be winking!) will release Invincible Summer: An Anthology Vol. 2, her latest zine issue, ...   More

Bitch's Battle Royale: Bloggers vs. Newspapers


News
Okay, so I wasn't even supposed to be on stage. But, at the last minute, Portland Mercury News Editor Amy Ruiz couldn't make it. So, my friend, colleague, and Bitch Magazine managing editor Miriam Wolf asked me to step in. That's right. I was part of this "feminist response to pop culture" mag's latest "Pop Culture Debate" in support of the release of Bitch's most recent edition: Genesis. ...   More

Bruce Carey + Garage Sale=You too Can Buy A Piece of the Good Life


News
Just got this in my inbox. And I have to tell you: I AM SO THERE. That's because it's Bruce friggin Carey's garage sale. For years I've swooned over this restaurant owner's sense of style. In fact, the dude is sort of like our local gay version of Cary Grant. Although I'm certain I can't fit into a stitch of his clothing, I can't wait to see what other goodies will be up for grabs. And ...   More

We Feel Your Pain: Ban on Gay Marriage measure qualifies for November ballot in California


News
Dear California, I was so sorry to see that a ban on gay marriage, which would define marriage as only between a man and a woman, is going to be put to state voters this fall. Talk about a bummer. Oregon has already gone through this nightmare, and I have to tell you: It's a bitch. Hopefully, you have enough mavericks in your state to make sure everyone does the right thing. I don't say ...   More
