It is finally here, the HoliGays!  After a two week vacation to enjoy some much needed family time for turkey day, the YaY! is back and better than ever.  Check out what is going down this weekend as we race into the new year and new beginnings!




1426185_562658317141759_1839900629_nCourtney Trouble Queer Porn Movie Party
The New Parkway
474 24th St, Oakland
7 p.m.

So excited to be showing you some of Courtney Trouble’s best recent works, tailored for the large screen of the New Parkway Theater (did you know they have couches… and beer?) and in the fine company of many of the performers, including from out of town – April Flores and Nikki Hearts! You’ll get to meet with them and other performers and chat with us about porn, sexuality, art, whatever, after the screening!

Courtney Trouble is the recipient of 6 Feminist Porn Awards and AVN nominations for their groundbreaking work in queer pornography. Coining the term in 2002, queer porn has become a bonafide movement in the queer feminist community – Courtney’s sex positive, body positive, and progressive porn speaks to the power of erotic imagery to create change.

Feelmore Fresh is a project of Feelmore Adult Gallery. (Locally grown dildos for purchase)

Also: Win a free one of a kind glass toy from Fucking Sculptures, and 100 guests will win a free limited edition postcard *or* a brand new Courtney Trouble DVD!

The Queer Porn Movie party will be dedicated to the diversity of queer desire, and is designed to showcase people of color, people of size, queer gay males, trans people, and people all along the spectrum of human sexuality. Your appreciation and celebration is welcome!

Milk Bar
1840 Haight Street, SF
9 p.m.
Free with RSVP or $5 for Walk-Ups

As winter descends upon us, the 5th of December nears with both familiarity and infamy. On December 5th in 1812, Napoleon Bonaparte left his army as they were retreating from Russia. In 1913 Britain outlawed the sending of arms to Ireland. 1968 saw the release of The Rolling Stones’ new album Beggar’s Banquet.
And in 2013 at Milk Bar in San Francisco, join us as we magnify and intoxicate the Angels and Demons of the winter solstice.

The show is free with an online RSVP:

$5 for walk ups. 21

Gavin likes to compare her shows to “Robyn meets Santigold beaming with Tina Turner’s energy” and she might actually be selling herself short. Her live performances aren’t to be missed. A lover of indie rock and disco, Gavin cites James Murphy and Giorgio Moroder as some of her biggest influences.

Bringing together energy, imagination and genre-bending sound, Midtown Social has become underground dance-floor darlings in San Francisco. Having successfully raised the funds for their first release, the band is hard at work recording a full-length of tightly-grooved, heartfelt and original sole-stepping anthems.
