This Week’s Events

Oregon Humane Society Benefit from Queer: an Open Mic

Queer: an Open Mic is always fun, but now it’s practically a humanitarian cause. This week we are passing the hat at our free comedy extravaganza for the most humane reason of all: PETS. While the extra singles in your pocket is wonderful, we will also take donations of pet toys, food, and kitten formula—if you’re not gonna’ finish that.

Thursday, December 14, 7:30–9:30 pm
Local Lounge, 3536 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland
Free admission, 21+ only

Holiday Cards to Prisoners!

For LGBT people who are incarcerated, the holidays are often a time when the sting of being away from community is particularly painful.
