The World is Broken so Treat Yourself to Valentines Day!

As the world continues to burn like a trash fire, give yourself and someone you care about one day to share a little love. We partner with some fantastic businesses and artists you should absolutely support on a ridiculous holiday.  MuscleAndBonePDX will give you the best massage you've ever had, Sante Bar will be offering up lots of yummy cocktails, Letterpress has some super cute cards, and SwitchLeatherCo has some wonderfully sexy leather goods available online or at SheBop the Shop. One of your people a cyclist? Stop by Gladys Bikes on Alberta. 

 

Letterpress has an online code PINKFEB and free shipping for any online orders over $10. Get someone a super cute card, maybe two.

Clementine's Party is Back!

Hey Babes! 

We are officially back and have booked our first show of the year! We can't wait to party with everyone's favorite little fruit, Clementine Peel on February 23rd at Sante Bar! Our gracious host has made one request; all Robyn music, all night. Cast announcement and official invites coming soon, so stay tuned! 

With a new year and a new era, we have made the decision to make every party into a fundraiser! Entry to the party is $10 and we are asking for donations of cash or tampons for p:ear.

 p:ear builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives. Each year our programs serve almost 900 homeless and transitional young people ages 15 to 24. Check them out, http://pearmentor.org/.

We can't wait to party for a good cause and celebrate bodies on stage! Support queer art and local advocacy! Stay safe, stay strong!

Good Morning.

"No matter what happens, the sun will rise in the morning." - Barack Obama

The sun is up. We are still here. And because we are still here, we still fight. Despite what people have told us we deserve, we deserve better than what we have now. Pink Hanky fights for our friends, our lovers, the families we were born into and the ones we have built with our hearts. 

If nothing else, we are grateful for the art that bleeds from the wounds of this election. 

This is beautiful call-to-action piece edited by our friend Nicholas Davis. 

Good morning.

New Year, New Work

Let's face it, no one was truly ready for the election results. We certainly didn't expect white women to chose their whiteness over the safety of literally everyone else. We took some time to process and really consider what Pink Hanky can do for the community in Portland and beyond. In times of fear, oppression, and resistance artistic expression is paramount. We are still the premiere space in PDX for artist and audience to connect, support, and inspire one another.

In addition to our performances and workshops, we are preparing for intense grassroots organizing. We have registered with Indivisible and are busy utilizing their guide to demand action from our local and federal government. Our goal is to speak with our community and demand better leadership. 

Letterpress PDX made us fancy!

Y'all, we are just tickled....well, PINK! Jenn over at Letterpress PDX made us the most lovely stationary! If you love letterpress as much as we do, go visit her! She's got an adorable shop over in Kenton and is even working on some fancy Holiday cards! She's also one of our newest sponsors and we are seeing pink with love for LetterpressPDX!
