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.

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.

Here’s to the
Ladies who Laugh

With a wise and worldy perspective, several local women comics are standing up to sexism, homophobia and other cultural malaises by helping us to laugh at such ignorance. Insightful truths are often the funniest, and these women –lesbian, queer and straight– have performances through the month.

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

The Mr. Transman Contest bring FTM talents together for a night of fun, MCed by Murray Hill and the ‘Original Plumbing’ crew, all at The Elbo Room.

Super-camp

Halloween Hoedown

New Year’s Eve events offer theatrical splendor, raunchy drag acts, classy hotel soirees, and live music of all kinds.

Queer Cheer!

Ho, ho ho! It’s that time of year again. December’s holiday-themed live shows and concerts should please anyone with alternative and traditional tastes.

Vagabondage
@ Various Venues

Vagabondage, a local whimsical Americana/folk band, would seem just as comfortable performing in an episode of Firefly or at a steampunk gathering. Catch one of their many local shows in July.
