Gaycation is a monthly queer dance party. Currently in its 6th year of fierceness, Gaycation showcases local & international queer performers and strives to create a super hot, inclusive, homo dance party.

For Portland Pride 2012, Gaycation will feature Portland local talent transplanted across the nation. With much thought and deliberation we wanted to select a cosmopolitan array of this party’s best and brightest guest DJ’s over the past 6 years.

DJ Chelsea Starr has been running the game in queer music industry for well over a decade. Her big rad queer party, Hot Pants, started in 2002 and ran for 7 years. Working in clubs all over the country from LA to NY to TX to FL, gay and straight, fancy and grimy- DJ Chelsea Starr’s blends the high brow with high femme just perfectly.

DJ Boy Joy (Seth Gottesdiener)- Skill and flexibility has built his DJ empire and has worked throughout the world. Anywhere from Tokyo, Japan to the Lower East Side’s Happy Endings in Los Angeles- Boy Joy has been there in his adonis aesthetic and amazing music. Guaranteed to bring high energy to any party he plays you can expect anything from commercial hip-hop, top 40, new disco, house, current favorites, and throwback nostalgic jams.

DJ Equestrian- The deep international fashion and couture DJ Equestrian has been noticed and featured in publications such as Vogue Italia and Harpers Bazaar UK. In between all of that she’s making music for her greater queer community. Widely known for her musical collaborations with DJ Automation in Los Angeles under the duo- RoboPony; DJ Equestrian will be very very buck.

Mr. Charming has been organizing, promoting, and DJ’ing in since 2004 and is a resident/co-founder at Gaycation. Mr. Charming has also also worked with Spinderella, Kim Ann Foxmann, and MEN.

DJ Snowtiger resident /co-founder at Gaycaiton, ex-Swan Island guitarist, filmmaker, you may recognizer her from the Portlandia “Dream of the 90s” video.

With a focus on depth in music, high fashion, deep glam, and knowing that your outfit and hair are just right- Gaycation Pride 2012 will be all at once local and global. This celebration recognizes the ties and the talent that have built Gaycation throughout the years. Join us Friday June 15th and transform Holocene into the Homoscene!

    Pride week is awesome. It’s a place where you can appreciate the arts and it allows others to open up to a culture that is fantastic and full of excitement and allows others to express themselves without being judged. It’s just an experience that everyone needs to enjoy
