RACE TALKS: Uniting to Break the Chains of Racism and McMenamins present the 2nd Annual History of Black Drag in Portland, hosted by Poison Waters and Lawanda Jackson. This is an intersectional Pride and Juneteenth event featuring fabulous drag performances and a special forum to learn about the historical connection between BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, plus) communities.
Thursday, June 15th is BIPOC night, and we are emphasizing LGBTQ+ BIPOC in-person attendance, because there are few Pride events that are centered around Black and brown queer folx in Portland. We welcome audiences outside of that identity to please join us on Friday, June 16th for the all-community night.
