Blog Events Event Spotlight: 2018 PORTLAND QUEER FILM FESTIVAL


By Becca Barron, October 2, 2018

Portland has it’s quirks, but it’s generally been a good place to stray from the straight-and-narrow.

We have a bevy of art festivals, like TBA and the Winter Lights Festival, and a ton of movie festivals, from Hump! to Portland Horror Film Festival. It’s a good place to be a maker of cool art.

The Portland Queer Film Festival is in it’s 22nd(!) year and going strong as ever. It shows from September 28th-Oct 4th, so you are just at the tale end so don’t miss it before it’s gone! All the films are being shown at Cinema 21, and includes incredible stories across the spectrum of the queer community.

“Transmilitary” tells the story of the nearly 15,500 transgender persons serving in the US Military in secrecy abut their identities. With Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repealed in 2016, many people are still concerned about their future, especially with the Trump administration vowing to bring back the ban.

“Tucked” is a tale of a drag queen given a six weeks to live. With that time all he wants to do is perform his act and move along as if normal, however that plan is turned upside down by the friendship of a young drag queen and the reconnection of his estranged daughter.

“Ideal Home” is undoubtably the most Hollywood friendly film being shown. Two affluent gay men have their dinner party, and lives, thrown awry by the arrival of a grandson they never knew about.

[embed][/embed] I have been fascinated with real estate, architecture and design since I first discovered Frank Lloyd Wright. My father is a Master Craftsman who instilled a passion for investing in one’s environment at a young age. Because of these formative experiences, I chose to become a Portland realtor, dedicated to finding my clients the right mix of home and community. With a degree in art education and three years teaching in the Portland school district combined with over a decade of experience as a local small business owner, I have developed an extensive knowledge of our varied neighborhoods. While I know and love the Portland metro area, I am fascinated by the sub-pockets of communities and culture that are popping up within a ten-mile radius. There are amazing sprawling mid-century ranches with floor to ceiling windows and full height basements just waiting for you to convert them. In these hidden neighborhoods, you’ll find great schools, little dive bars, and farmers markets with close access to all of the beautiful Pacific Northwest nature we know and love. For those of you ready to sell, my goal is to market your home to the largest pool of buyers possible. I have a knack for resourceful staging, utilizing the tools at hand. I have a hands-on and compassionate approach to what can be a stressful time. With Living Room Realty's cutting edge marketing tools and my own technological & social networking savvy, you will achieve maximum exposure in the market. When I’m not touring houses or prepping listings, I’ll be kayak fishing on a remote lake while continuing my quest to find the top-secret hot springs and hidden swimming holes of the Northwest. In the city, you’ll find me playing pickelball in Eastmoreland or tucked away in my leather workshop under the Morrison bridge. I don’t just help you find a home -  I strive to help build inclusive and sustainable communities. From Boomers who want to downsize and move to the coast, to Millennials buying their first home, I’m here for you. Whether you're an experienced investor, new homebuyer, or have questions about the process, I am here to provide you with informed, honest, and ethical answers.
