About The Event
Twirl is a monthly Portland-based queer dance party where the essence of Disco is at the forefront of everything! This indelible music genre has been part of queer culture since its inception, and at Twirl we honor the past while also curating sounds via the current iterations of Nu-Disco & House music. In addition to rotating dj's from Portland and beyond, expect inspired drag performances from the wealth of local talent! If nothing else, Twirl is about getting lost on the dance floor and finding some friends along the way! (find us on Insta @twirl.pdx)

Selectors 3 sets each across the night!
Guest dj ~ Glittery Ghoul, co-creator of Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love; a monthly italo-disco night at Coffin Club, we can't wait for Glittery Ghoul to share his talents of all styles of dark disco with 3 vinyl sets thru the night!
