Each month we takeover a different venue and invite our readers, advertisers, and community partners to join us for a laid back evening of catching up with old friends and making new connections.

PQ Monthly is excited to partner with Oaks Park to bring you Gay Skate -- the monthly LGBTQ rollerskating party. Gay Skate, held the third Monday of each is sponsored by Sock Dreams and the Rose City Rollers. We will be collecting food for Take Action, Inc., a program that puts food in the backpacks of low-income children so they have something to eat over the weekend. The next Gay Skate (RSVP here) will be Oct. 21, 7 p.m.-9 p.m., at Oaks Park Roller Skating Rink (7805 SE Oaks Park Way, Portland). Admission is $6. PQ's portion of the admission proceeds will go toward the creation of a PQ Monthly Scholarship Fund.
