Portland Queer Comedy Festival is a collaboration between Andy Barrett, owner of Funhouse Lounge and Belinda Carroll; a long-time queer activist, comedian, and actress. Portland Queer Comedy Festival has pledged to not only give a portion of our proceeds to local area and national non-profits, (see our community partners section on our website for more information) but to hold fund drives within the festival to support our community partners. This inclusive festival will involve comics from all walks of the LGBTTIQQ2SA alphabet, and yes, we’ve included our funniest allies too. Portland Queer Comedy Festival; let’s keep Portland Queer.
