Gender Identity and Expression: Respect, Care and Language Workshop
The Liquor Store

Our community is full of really amazing and diverse people, each seeking to connect and engage with others. But the gender constructs we've been given can impede our ability to see and interact with individuals outside the binary in ways that feel safe and meaningful. This workshop will be co-presented by Mychel Estevez, an instructor at PSU and UP, and Hannah Stauffer, a Transgender community member. They will discuss how to use inclusive language, common pitfalls, and ways to be sensitive when negotiating and seeking to connect with diverse individuals. Bring your friends and share your thoughts as we seek to make the Portland sexuality communities a fun and safe place for all bodies, genders, and genitals.

Where Are Queer People Welcome?
North Portland Library

Registration required; register online at https://multcolib.org/events/where-are-queer-people-welcome/80127


A majority of Americans now accept gay and lesbian relationships, but the queer population is made up of a diversity of communities and experiences. Are all queer people accepted, tolerated, and embraced everywhere? Where are we made to feel welcome? Where do we feel unwelcome and unsafe? What does it mean to see your experience reflected in media? What does it mean when stories reflecting the queer experience are actively silenced?

Join facilitator Jill Winsor in a discussion that explores how the complexity of the queer community intersects with the spaces and communities that surround us.

This Conversation Project is made possible by the generous support of Oregon Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, and The National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of The Library Foundation.

Under the Influence: All Trumped Up
through Funhouse Lounge

Under the Influence: All Trumped Up (mature audiences)

In 2015 we created what was intended to be a workshop (9 performances over two weekends) of a new serial musical by Broadway lyricist Ernie Lijoi. However, we soon learned we had a successful show on our hands that would go on to win the 2015 Drammy Awards for Best Original Score and Best Actor in a Musical. So, we’ve “Trumped” it up, added some new faces, streamlined the designs, and we are proud to present Under the Influence: All Trumped Up.

An unapologetically feminist, irreverent musical that tackles the influences that surround all of us by examining our hero, Anita: Anita Drink, Anita Smoke, Anita Cup, whichever Anita she is that day. Whether it’s Juan Valdez pushing us caffeine, Barbie giving us body issues, some cartoon character pushing nicotine, or our local bartender sliding us another drink, we’re all under the influence of something… yes, even Jesus.


The OUTwright Theatre Festival - The mission of this Portland, OR festival is to celebrate contributions of the LGBTQ community to the art of theatre by staging both original and classic works thus creating an incubator of new theatre for and by the LGBTQ community.

Funhouse Lounge - Where fun is our first name. Cocktails. Comedy. Draft. Theater. Improv.

Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 film collection screening
Boathouse Microcinema

Celebrating the new wave of independent cinema in Chicago, Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 champions work by underrepresented filmmakers and combines experimental genres into one seamless anthology. Participating filmmaker Emily Esperanza will be in attendance to introduce the show.

Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 brings together the best of the city’s so-called “niche” cinemas – experimental genres and works by queer filmmakers, women, and people of color. The program joins those “niches” into one expansive, rich evening of film – helping general audiences experience cinematic versions of Chicago they may have never thought to access.

The short films collected in Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 have screened in over 30 countries and 65 cities throughout the world. The work spans many disciplines, including experimental animation, observational doc, and music videos. The filmmakers run the gamut from internationally renowned auteurs to young voices, and include an Emmy-winner, a Fulbright Fellow, and a Wexner resident.

Vol. 3 is produced by Full Spectrum Features NFP and co-curated by Beckie Stocchetti of the Chicago Film Office, Raul Benitez of Comfort Station and the Nightingale Cinema, and award-winning filmmaker Jim Vendiola. Participating filmmaker Emily Esperanza is an artist and curator whose passions lie in discarded aesthetics, liminal spaces, guerrilla approaches, and unconventional narrative. Her recent videos, collected under the title, WRETCHED WOMAN, investigate duration, ritual, sensuality, and archetype, specifically relating to representations of femininity.

Sunday August 27th Doors at 7:30 / show starts at 8:00 $8 - tickets available at the door
