Queer the Cheer

Launched in 2013 by Ernesto Olivo, Rosalynn Warren, Manuel Davila and Beto De Leon, the San Antonio Queer Collective seeks to “emphasize and promote the amazing talent of San Antonio’s queer community.” Sparked by the absence of an LGBT-focused holiday market, the DIY-minded crew of queer creators, organizers, artists and makers hosted its inaugural Queer the Cheer event last December at the Southwest Workers Union’s Roots of Change Urban Garden. For year two, SAQ Collective brings together more than 20 LGBT/queer/ally artists, crafters and makers—including Sisters of Yarnage, David Zamora Casas, The Odd Macabre, Luna Kitty Designs, Malice in Chains, Linda Monsivais (aka Lovely Minivans), Dino Foxx, Logan Magz, Rasqua-Chic and The Aesthetic of Waste—for an eclectic gift market enhanced with beer, wine and tamales (by donation), music by local electronica act Saakred and DJ Neto, and “Homo for the Holidays”—a drag/burlesque revue with performances by Foxxy Blue Orchid, Maxxy Radd, Keelin Christopher, Miss Black Orchid and Pantie Oaklie. Free, 4-10pm Sat, Pride Center, 147 E Mistletoe, (210) 370-7743, facebook.com/saqcollective. —Bryan Rindfuss
