DJ Tristan Jaxx
International DJ/Producer Tristan Jaxx hard-hitting signature brand of visceral house music commands an enthralling blend of deep, pounding sound, larger-than-life vocals and vast & volumeous instrumentals. These elements combine to form an aural orgasm of consistently elevated energy that is truly unique. With an obvious finger on the pulse of what is fresh, energetic and exciting, his hunger for compositions and sets that one can completely get lost inside is sweeping the world. His chart-topping podcasts (which are all recorded from his live sets) have skyrocketed his appeal to new heights.

Laseronic Laser lights are the most vivid and saturated lights available. Laseronics contrast ratio unsurpassed any video technologies and their Lasers have the ability to reach out in three dimensions and shower the sky with cascading beams of light, embracing you in waves of moving light.

With a focus on live beam show performances, we offer fully preprogrammed laser shows and effects, using the most talented and knowledgeable Laserists available. Providing lasers for the most fashionable and fabulous parties throughout the world! Weather it is a chic dinner at the Pyramids in Egypt or a party on the worlds most elegant cruise liners, Laseronics is the choice.

REVOL Artists

REVOL ARTISTS was created from the group Just Hoopers. Originally a collaboration with our friends, the band Just People, Just Hoopers began to take on a life of its own. Our vision is to inspire communities to unite through innovative collaborations and movement. REVOL ARTISTS has a focus in unforgettable ambiance and choreographed hula hoop entertainment.

Isaiah Esquire & Johnny Nuriel
Isaiah Esquire is the producer and headliner of the hit bi monthly show BOYEURISM at Star Theater. Isaiah as a dancer/performer has graced many stages throughout the United States and as far as Jamaica and Finland. This exciting entertainer has a unique performance style that is intensely emotive, athletic, and explosive incorporating elements of dance, burlesque, drag, and contortion into his stage performance. Often referred to as a “Glamazon” his tall statuesque physique alone demands attention. That, however is certainly not the only reason why Isaiah Esquire is a force promised to entrance you.

John-Nuriel Yeshua Vissell (Johnny Nuriel) fuses burlesque, belly dance, aerial, and LED together to create unique and vibrant performances, sometimes uniting all four in a single act.

Johnny first branched into the performing arts when he began experimenting with flow arts such as juggling, hoop, poi, and staff at the age of 12. He was soon performing with LED and rapidly progressed to fire dance. Johnny studied aerial silks, trapeze, and lyra in 2012 at Kalani on the Big Island of Hawaii. Most recently Johnny has begun performing aerial chains.

Pride celebrations have been held in Portland since the 1970′s. In 1994, the original board of directors of Pride Northwest created a 501(c)3 organization and held their first meeting. Since that time, the board and the event has grown considerably. Today, Pride Northwest is made up of a dynamic group of individuals from many different backgrounds who are dedicated to providing a venue for the queer community to gather and celebrate. The mission of Pride Northwest, Inc. is to encourage and celebrate the positive diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer communities, and to assist in the education of all people through the development of activities that showcase the history, accomplishments, and talents of these communities.

    Also I’d wreck it on the dance floor ;)

  20. Erin June 9, 2014 at 12:41 pm #

    First time attending pride. Just moved here from the south. Would love to win some tickets.

  21. Nik June 9, 2014 at 1:29 pm #

    I wanna go to my first pride party and this seems so hot!

  22. Dustin June 10, 2014 at 10:36 am #

    This is my first time ever to visit Portland or the West Coast at that. I am from a small town in Mississippi and have lived there all of my life, so I have never been to a pride event in my life. I really didn’t even know what pride was, besides what I had seen on T.V. I got the chance to come here for for an internship through my university, and so I am really trying to experience everything Portland has to offer. I wasn’t out back home because that’s just something you didn’t do. But its so freeing to be able to be out and be myself here. I don’t know many people in the city besides my boss, so this would be an amazing opportunity to meet a lot of awesome people in the LGBT community. I know this is a long shot, but I figure it is at least worth the chance for an ex-closeted southern guy who wants to experience his first pride!!

  23. Greg Griffith June 10, 2014 at 4:29 pm #

    Hi everyone!

    It’s my first time visiting Portland and my first time getting to see Pride here on the West Coast. I’m from a small town in Massachusetts. We don’t get a lot of opportunities to celebrate our Pride in the boonies. :-P

    I’d love the chance to win a pair of tickets to see this amazing, jamming party!

    Thank you thank you!

  24. Tyler Brooks June 10, 2014 at 8:49 pm #

    It’s going to be my first pride, out to family and friends and I am so excited to celebrate with Portland!

  25. Silver June 10, 2014 at 9:22 pm #

    I’ve never been to a pride dance event, winning tickets would be rad.

  26. Selina June 10, 2014 at 9:54 pm #

    Can’t wait to celebrate this year! we have had an amazing year for marriage equality and I can’t wait to be OUT and about being proud! Let’s dance!

  27. Megan June 11, 2014 at 7:16 am #

    Looking forward to dancing the night away!

  28. Jamie C. June 11, 2014 at 10:53 am #

    Hello, just moved to Portland to be with my partner! I would love to be able to attend some pride events to relieve the stress of moving. This would give us a chance to bond with the gay community in the city together.

    Be blessed!

  29. Heather June 11, 2014 at 1:09 pm #

    Are you kidding me? The reason I want to attend? The bigger question might be this: Why wouldn’t I?

  30. crystal June 11, 2014 at 8:59 pm #

    I would just like to win the tickets to go with my girl and dance our asses off! ALL NIGHT LONG, ALL NIGHT, ALL NIGHT

  31. Amandalynn Devine June 11, 2014 at 11:57 pm #

    I have always wanted to experience this eclectic array of vibrancy, unique individuals, and free spiritual nature. I will be attending regardless but I’m on a new free kick on living life to the fullest in each moment and not worrying about the consequences. I also thought I’d try to enter a contest at least once in my life! :D

    I’ll see you all there!

  32. Marie June 12, 2014 at 3:37 pm #

    I would love to be able to surprise my girlfriend with this prize!

  33. Roberto Olivero June 12, 2014 at 3:39 pm #
