Robert is a working class queer nerd overthrowing the capitalist patriarchy one wry comment at a time. Besides volunteering as editor and publisher of Queerspace Magazine, he’s a writer, designer, illustrator, photographer, and filmmaker. He’s a lifelong gaymer, and is old enough to remember when RPGs only came with paper and dice.
Emma Lee Toyoda Doesn’t Want To Play Your Show

Emma Lee Toyoda Doesn’t Want To Play Your Show

It’s hard not to think about today’s rapidly changing and gentrifying Seattle when listening to the latest single from Emma Lee Toyoda, ‘i don’t wanna play your show.’ The song is raw and punk, like skinning your knee on the concrete floor of a basement house party mosh pit. And then getting up and moshing again anyway. It’s a departure from the more folksy, ethereal, indy sounds of their previous work.

Nightshots: Qomix Queer Comicon Party 2019

Queers and geeks gathered at the Timbre Room on the last night of Emerald City Comic Con 2019 for a little fun, a little cosplay, and a whole lotta dancing at the 2019 Qomix: Queer Comicon Party. DJ Joy Ma and DJ Calente Cardwell turned it up on the decks, while Arson Nicki brought it to you on stage, and you all turned it out on the dance floor.

Audience members at The Timbre Room witnessed five artists performing acts of radical self love. The artists were challenged to pull back the curtains on the emotional trauma that inspired their performances. Hosts Lillith and Stasia Coup, along with dance performers The Drama Tops, burlesque artist Britt Brutality, and drag artist Angel Baby Kill Kill Kill each gave us their artistic interpretations of a broken heart, followed by a short, intimate conversation on stage about just what makes their broken hearts tick.

Totally Unofficial Queer Guide to OrcaCon 2019

We’ve written about OrcaCon before, a mainstay in the local tabletop convention scene, and the largest tabletop gaming convention in the PNW. It’s since moved from Everett to the Bellevue Hilton, but still features a great selection of panels, industry guests, merchants, and, of course, games, games, games!

Take some of the hottest names in the queer Seattle nightlife scene, including Arson Nicki, Michete, Castor Pollux, and, of course, BeautyBoiz, throw in a little Robyn – make that a lot of Robyn, and what do you get? If you were at Fred Wildlife Refuge for Recklessly, Headlessly: A Robyn Party, then you saw what you get. One of the best parties this town has seen in ages. And we’ve got the snaps to prove it!

Nightshots: SAM Remix

If you’re looking to see the Seattle Art Museum a new light, literally, then SAM Remix may be the eclectic, music and fun filled, evening party experience for you. This time around Queerspace Magazine was lucky enough to be invited in to catch some of the magic, too. The party only happens 3 times a year, and tickets always sell out fast, so make you get yours as soon as you see them go on sale!

Nightshots: Seattle Gaymers Halloween Party

Nightshots: Seattle Gaymers Halloween Party

A midweek Halloween wasn’t enough to keep the crowds at away from Seattle’s Gaymers largest annual event. The queer geeks were out in full force and full dress, as you can see by these pics we snagged from the party at Baltic Room.

Nightshots: Laugh Back

Laugh Back was a hilarious comedy event, curated by Clara Pluton, comprised exclusively of comedians who are immigrants or children of immigrants, to take back the narrative of the immigrant experience and raise money for the NWDC Resistance, a grassroots undocumented led movement that works to end the detention of immigrants and stop all deportations.
