About this Event
Are you a creative? We are thrilled to be producing a free lecture series and networking event designed to be a unique gathering point for freethinkers in the area. Our goal is to help our members connect with other like-minded artists and creatives interested in exploring their potential.
This month we have invited Portland’s funniest Drag Queen, Poison Waters!
Poison Waters is not just a personality. Poison is an experience!! Whether dressed as Poison Waters or her alter ego Kevin Cook, they are both captivating and one of a kind!
For just over three decades Poison has been having tons of FUN entertaining from countless stages throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond. She has been very busy coordinating, participating in and hosting an endless docket of benefits, revues and shows for various local, regional and national non-profit as well as for profit organizations. She has been recognized and rewarded for her community service, raising awareness, and providing entertainment to such charities as Cascade AIDS Project, Dress for Success Oregon, the Make a Wish Foundation, Human Dignity Coalition, Oregon Humane Society and the American Heart Association. Poison has received the Ray C. Snively Award, The Assistance League of Greater Portland’s National Operation School Bell Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Court System, a Hero of HIV Award and the Red Ribbon Award from the Coalition for AIDS Awareness just to name a few. The invitations for bookings never stop! Highlights have been appearances with Pink Martini, AM Northwest, opening for Storm Large at her Holiday Ordeal, Drag Queen Storytelling at Multnomah County Libraries, and a recurring role in Oregon Ballet Theater’s The Nutcracker. Hundreds of thousands have enjoyed her wit, charm and beauty! When she is not enjoying her time hosting events and fundraisers or traveling the globe, she is the co-hostess at the legendary Darcelle XV Showplace where she has been wildly popular for almost 30 years.
2019 marks the 19th year volunteering with summer camps for children whose lives have been affected by HIV. Poison, as Kevin is the Camp Director for Cascade AIDS Projects’ Camp KC (Kids Connection).
Whatever the title, event, cause or venue, one thing remains the same: the important bond between Poison Waters and her audience. She will always remain, “the smile on the face of Portland.” www.poisonwaters.com
