Winter Holiday Show!
Lady Stockholm's Winter Holiday Show is a theatrical night of music, with a dark, loud and heavy twist.
Lady Stockholm, the only living heir of her family manor, front mans a band of necromanced musical spirits, while various holiday characters grace the stage to tell the story of one lewd and unholy, Krampus-tastic night.
Have your photo taken with Krampus! Both Naughty and Nice are welcome to pose with Krampus in his photo booth!
December 5th at the Star Theater!
QUEER HORROR began (and still thrives) as a bimonthly screening series programmed and hosted by Carla Rossi at the historic Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon since March 2015. Consistently packing a ninety-year-old movie theater full of queers and allies for rowdy shows opening with performances and short films, we question horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities.
From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why.
