Please join Rose Emperor XXXIII Don Hood, Ranier Emperor XXVII John D, and the Imperial Sovereign Rose Court for the 36th annual "Valentines From Hell", featuring a spectacular showcase of the Northwest's Tough Drag performers. The theme this year is "The Best Little WeirdHouse In Portland," and performers are invited to be as funny, as kooky, or as weird as they can!
The evening will be dedicated to the late Rose Empress XXI Allison Grey.
36 years ago, Rose Empress VI Mame and Rose Emperor V Frank came up with the idea for "Valentines From Hell", a (tough)drag show like no other, to benefit the Pride of the Rose Scholarship Fund. The PRSF is available to Gay, Lesbian, Bi, Transgendered, or Queer persons and their children to further their secondary education. Since it's inception more than 30 years ago, the PRSF has given more than $325,000 in scholarships to the community.
VFH is not an evening for crowns and gowns, but frocks, jocks, and frolic, and is the longest-running "tough drag" benefit in the country. Beautiful faces, beards, moustache, hairy chests and legs... glitter and chiffon, crinolines and leather... it all goes!
Many fabulous items will be available for auction, plus a 50/50 raffle, with all proceeds from the door, performers tips, and auction and raffle monies going to benefit the Pride of the Rose Scholarship Fund.
This is an open-invitation performer show, group numbers encouraged, with a limited number of spots available on a first come basis. Music must be turned in no later than 5:30.
Doors - 5:00pm, Show - 6:00pm, $5.00 suggested donation.
