Portland’s legendary X-rated open mic night Dirty Queer celebrates its 6th anniverary tonight. Dirty poem? Bring it! Nasty song? Sing it! But get there early to sign up, because this shindig gets crowded and rowdy. Need I mention this is an 18-and-over event?
The brainchild of queer poet Sossity Chiricuzio, Dirty Queer aims to give people an audience where they can explode, expose and examine the sexual myths and shenanigans of their lives in a no-holds-barred but safe environment.
Dirty Queer is the second Friday of January, April, July and October, but tonight’s 6th anniversary event at In Other Words should be a blast. In addition to two hours of uncensored art, there will be a social hour, photobooth, a quiz portion, snacks and door prizes.
So, what have YOU got to say? And, don’t hold back!
