A weekend of celebrating homoerotic tendencies
April 27-29th, 2018
Come join us in Portland, Oregon for a weekend fueled by the exploration of fetish, play and fun. April 27-29, 2018 is Northwest Gay for Play Weekend. A weekend for queers of every flavor of the TLGBQ rainbow, and those who want to build community with them. The diversity celebrated at this weekend makes a welcoming home for fetishists across a wide range of gear and play. We are welcoming to all, wherever you may fall on the spectrum.
Northwest Gay for Play Weekend 2018 features three days full of play opportunities! We will be hosting a Fabulous Meet and Beat to kick the weekend off right. Come meet contestants and see how they play well with others. Saturday features play workshops all day followed by the contest for three fetish titles: Intergalactic Ethical Sadist, Intergalactic Power Bottom, and Intergalactic Hardcore Switch. To wrap up the weekend we will be hosting a Big Gay Brunch on Sunday that combines delicious breakfast food with even more play!

Keep the Northwest kinky
representing a diverse community
Northwest Gay for Play contest titles are open to a broader spectrum of fetish identities: from rubber, uniforms, leather and furry, to sports kit, food fetishists, and punks. The titles of Intergalactic Ethical Sadist, Intergalactic Power Bottom, and Intergalactic Hardcore Switch, are open to any self identified TLGBQ community member over the age of 21 who wants to represent the kinky queer community in our galaxy. Our distinguished panel of intergalactic judges has been selected to represent the diversity of our community.
While Northwest Gay for Play aims to be a radically inclusive weekend, we are intended to be a safe space for people who identify as TLGBQ and who play in the kink/fetish/leather community. This restriction is not meant to exclude (all are welcome to participate) only to focus the theme and intention of the weekend. We are not restricted to leather or rubber, or a specific power dynamic such as Owner/property and Sir/boy. We are open to contestants across the fetish board who wish to represent the queer fetish community.
Northwest Gay for Play Weekend is a celebration of kinky queer tendencies and the contests are open to all self identified queer contestants. This weekend embraces and welcomes all our kinky, fetish community regardless of sexual identity or gender. This means you! Come out and have a good time!
