PQ Monthly Takes on Gay Skate Monday

By Erin Rook, PQ Monthly

We are excited to announce a new partnership with Gay Skate — the monthly LGBTQ rollerskating party at Oaks Park. PQ Monthly will be hosting the longstanding event starting Monday, Aug. 20. Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food or personal items for donation to Esther’s Pantry and Martha’s Pantry (organizations serving people with HIV/AIDS in Portland and Vancouver). Admission is $6 and the skate runs from 7 to 9 p.m.

Each month, Gay Skate will feature a local non-profit doing good work in the community, giving them an opportunity to table and spread the word. (If your organization is interested in being featured, please email PQ’s portion of the admission proceeds will go toward the creation of a PQ Monthly Scholarship Fund (details to be announced soon).

Side note: I haven’t rollerskated since I was a kid (I used to take lessons). I hope they play “Downtown.” Is that still a thing?
