Pride is here! We’ve rounded up all our parties that celebrate our amazing LGBTQ community. Starting this Thursday (6/16) and spanning to the end of the month. We’ve teamed up with some of Portland’s best to bring an absolutely thrilling few weeks. These parties push the edges and encourage everyone to come as their true selves. Come dance with us!
3-2-1 Launch, A Pride Kick Off Party! (Thursday – 6/16)
Taking you into the newest gaylaxy, our friends from Hard Yes are ready for an out of this world party. This intergaylactic dance party features live music from Du Og Meg, Portland based future and punk house sounds with pop and RnB elements.
SF based DJ 1(A) AKA Gheno Aviance joins with what is best described as deep garage tech. With 22 years of making music, Gheno has a vast musical journey from coast to coast, and totally ready to DJ us into the next gaylaxy. As always, DJ Sappho will be guiding our spacecraft. Kick off this weekend right and head straight into the next stratosphere. Dress like the space queen from your home planet and get ready to launch into Pride!
Playground Pride PDX with Lady Miss Kier (Deee-Lite) (Saturday – 6/18)
Playground is the party for all the house heads, club kids, the freaks and nerds. It is for everyone who is ready to check their ego at the door and just dance. It is all about the music, and making the dance floor your playground. It is perfectly fitting that they are bringing Lady Miss Kier, who has been a pioneer for female DJs and positivity in the dance community. Creating international dance hits like “Groove Is in the House”, “Good Beat”, and “Power of Love”, Lady Miss Kier has been firing up dance floors for decades. Plus DJ Sappho and David Sylvester join.
Rice, Beans, and Collard Greens (Wednesday – 6/29)
Taking place in just a few weeks, Rice, Beans, and Collard Greens is an ALL AGES dance party. Pride isn’t just one week, or one month, so we’re happy to spread these events out. This is an LGBTQ space that celebrates people of color. Friends and family are encouraged to come! Hosted by Basic Rights Oregon alongside many Portland Pride organizations (Asian Pacific Islander, Portland Black Pride, Latino Gay, and Two Spirit Society) the party will feature DJ sets by II Trill and Casual Aztec. Drinks will be served to those 21 and over, and it will be all ages until 10PM.
