Portland Pride


Portland Pride is one of the largest events in the city. Many bars and clubs will host events or block parties on Pride weekend. Pride NW will set up a huge camp on the waterfront and a parade strolls from the park blocks to the waterfront that sunday.

Q Center


Q Center proudly serves the LGBTQ communities of Portland Metro and Southwest Washington. The drop-in and event space on North Mississippi Avenue is a frequent first stop for new arrivals in Portland, and for longtime residents who are newly out or questioning their sexual or gender identity.
