Holy Rollin’

With a history going back decades, roller skating and its various gay nights continue to offer up fun on wheels, both in Redwood City and at a church on Fillmore Street. Both locations bring lighthearted nightlife with an innocent sense of fun.

Spring Flings

Be it dance, gardening, science or shopping, a fabulous bouquet of decorative and artistic receptions and parties await you in your new Spring party garb. Catch the fun while it’s blossoming.

Lady Rizo @ Feinstein’s

Lady Rizo performs in San Francisco at Feinstein’s at the Nikko February 6 and 7. Her new album, ‘Violet,’ released in November 2013, is brilliance incarnate. Her stage shows are a terrific mix of what she calls “caburlesque.”

Beautiful Boys

Super-camp

D’Arcy Drollinger loves Blaxploitation cinema. Cheesy all black action flicks like Cleopatra Jones can make his day. Drollinger’s ‘Shit & Champagne,’ opening Friday January 17 at Rebel, is what the actor/dancer calls “whitesploitation.”

Cho Biz: Margaret Cho at Masonic Hall

Surfacing on the national comedy scene in the early 1990s and remaining a comedic staple ever since, Emmy and Grammy-nominated actress and comic Margaret Cho will return to her hometown of San Francisco where she got her very first start.

Peachy Keen

Eclectic, experimental, punk, electro… it takes many words to try to describes the unique musical talent known as Peaches. She and her Peachettes will headline the 40th anniversary Castro Street Fair with a special musical tribute to Sylvester.

Bunny’s Back!

She’s back! Lady Bunny, New York nightlife drag queen extraordinaire, Wigstock creator, performer and DJ, returns to San Francisco with the latest edition of her bawdy variety show full of saucy songs and sassy commentary.
