50 Shades of STFU: Pride was a Riot

July 25 @ 8:00 pm - 2:00 am

Presented by Mistress Viola

50 Shades of STFU is a kinky play party and social event for femdoms and femme tops and the individuals who serve and worship them. We have been home at Sanctuary Club downtown since 2017.

In honor of Pride (which Portland has moved to July!) we are celebrating with our annual ‘Pride was a RIOT’ party – more important than ever as LGBTGIA rights are continually being threatened in the US and globally (and as bodily autonomy and sexual freedom is further squashed by advancing authoritarianism). Show up in your rainbow riot gear, protest shirts, or paint yourself with rainbows, trans flags…show your PRIDE in whatever way is best for YOU. GET QUEER AF, my babies. As always, the themes for STFU are not mandatory. But the dress code is! See dress code below.

We will welcome @MxPucksAPlenty as our featured guest performer this month! Known as “The They Them Yas Queen of Burlesque”, Mx. Pucks A’Plenty is a burlesque performer, producer, #themcee, and stage manager with PLENTY of wit and tit to spare!

What happens at this infamous event? Performances begin around 9:30 pm. Tastings occur from open to around midnight. Tastings are first come first serve and limited.

We aim to create an inclusive space for LGBTQ, pansexual, queer, or straight submissives and their fem tops. If you’re a cis male dom this is really not the event for you. However, if you’re switchy and/or abide by the dress code you are welcome to join us!

Playspaces, St. Andrews cross, semi-private areas, spanking benches, and hard points are available.

NOTE: End time is now 1am. The club may stay open longer depending on the crowd, but this is determined by the club.
