Since Halloween is on a Tuesday this year, it’s an exceptionally long weekend of spooky frivolity with dozens of holiday events happening from tonight (Friday, October 27th) through the actual day itself (Tuesday, October 31). Obviously there are many events geared to the public at large…various haunted houses and community events but we’re going to focus on the queerer ones….
Friday, October 27
The big event for Friday is Nark Magazine’s INTO? 2 happening at Neumos. It’s a dirty, fun costume, vogue party:
Into? is a combination drag pageant, freak show, runway walk-off and look-fest in a perverted Pacific Northwest fashion, an uncensored spectacle of cosmic proportions and gag-worthy abomination of heathens setting the elongated stage and runway ablaze with high-art drag and costumery, dance battles and walk-offs. It’s up to the crowd and the judges to pick which battle contestant walks home with the $1,000 prize, and it’s up to each contestant to give you a show like you’ve never seen before, strutting the runway to the twirling orchestrations of legendary ball DJ MikeQ.
There’s also RUCKUS throwing a Halloween Gear Party at The Seattle Eagle…Neighbours has Roxy Doll hosting SEASON OF THE WITCH, yet another costume contest event…Seattle’s Queer Latinx community has a big INFIERNO Fiesta happening at Montis Grill on Beacon Hill.
Pony has their UN-MASC weekend of events on Friday AND Saturday…check out the poo, which includes the one and only JACKIE HELL performing live Friday night:
