Wendy Westerwelle returns to triangle productions!, for a limited engagement, of her sold-out one woman show Medicarefully- Fabulous! The show is a series of original stories about aging, faith, friendships, recovery. How she sees her life, now in mid-60's; or as she calls it “the last part before I drop dead”. Some of her old characters back: Zumi and Golda and some new ones like Soheila—her botox doctor. Medicare-fully Fabulous! is about the celebration of life after 65 - the world politics, sex, aging, facial hair, no sex drive, being Jewish, clothes and well...even food.

Sex Workers Film Series: MUTANTES (PUNK PORN FEMINISM)

Categories:
Date: 
Sat, 08/02/2014 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm
Description: 

Mutantes: Punk Porn Feminism
Director: Virginie Despentes
Country: France
Year: 2011
Runtime: 92 minutes

Is pornography an acceptable form of expression - and if so, can distinctions be drawn between different forms of pornography? This documentary raises all of these questions, seeking to provide the answers from the perspective of pro-sex feminism, which asserts that pornography must be wrested from patriarchal control, and that in the hands of women and sexual minorities, it can become a tool of liberation. Director Virginie Despentes (Baise-moi) takes a wide ranging look at the movement and maps the evolution of pro-sex, or "post-porn", from its pioneers like Annie Sprinkle to newer European work like Emilie Jouvet’s Too Much Pussy!

The Clinton Street Theater Sex Worker series celebrates the accomplishments of sex worker film and video makers by screening relevant works about sex workers and the sex industries from around the world.

The films focus on sex workers' rights; organizing efforts and working conditions for strippers; global sex work and sex work as a labor issue on the international agenda; sex workers as artists; queer sex workers; sex work and gender identities; portraits of strippers, prostitutes, doms, madams and more.

 About PDX Pop Now!:

In 2004, a group of members from the PDX-POP listserv organized the first PDX Pop Now! music festival to “make a big deal” out of Portland’s vibrant music community.

The early, conscious decisions of these organizers helped shape the festival, and now shape our organization. In dedication to the large number of underage music fans, the festival is an all-ages affair. To this tune, the first installment was held at Meow Meow, a now-defunct, all-ages music venue on Portland’s industrial east side.

Friday – 7/19 Stage One:

6:00:     Like a Villain   
6:40:     Blue Skies for Black Hearts      
7:20:     Genders   
   
Friday – 7/19 Stage Two:
8:05:     The We Shared Milk

PCRI is proud to present the 2nd Annual Portland Roots Festival. Once again, we are coming together to promote healthy living through nutrition and exercise by tapping into the rich and ancient sustainable food practices of the African people.

We will highlight the different yet similar avenues these cultures took through celebrating the food practices of African-American, Afro-Caribbean, Afro- Latin, and African Diaspora populations of Portland, Oregon.

Portland Community Reinvestments Initiatives Inc., PCRI is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that was established in 1991 in response to a local housing crisis in inner North and Northeast Portland.  Years of redlining by financial institutions had left families in those neighborhoods unable to secure conventional mortgages, leading to widespread neglect and abandonment of properties.
