If you have ever been curious about the the PDX queer community’s court system, a great way to discover the pageantry and fun is to check out the White Knight and Debutante Ball. Reigning dignataries White Knight XVII Doug Deane and Debutante XLI Marlaine Desmond host the 2013 edition is tonight at Embers, and the theme is British Invasion.
At the ball, contenders for the position of White Knight and Debutante will perform, along with other monarchs of the Imperial Sovereign Rose Court and other court systems from across the PDX area. It is a great show, with proceeds going to the Rose Court Fund, which is used to support nonprofits citywide. Go and have a fun evening with the court….and perhaps you will be inspired to go for one of the titles next year.
(Oh, and if you see ShoShana B. Licious from the Raintree Empire, give her a peck on the cheek for me)
