About “Strip City’s Storied Sex Workers’ Specters… a.k.a. Portland’s Dead Prostitutes”
Join us for a history of Portland’s brothels of the past, presented by Doug Kenck-Crispin. There will also be a costume contest – dress as a “lady o’ the evening” or a pimp (from any era in history) and maybe you’ll win a prize.
Following his presentation, stay to watch a rare 35mm screening of Midnight Cowboy, starring Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman.
As always, food and drinks will be available for purchase.

About Midnight Cowboy (R) 
Texas greenhorn Joe Buck arrives in New York for the first time. Preening himself as a real hustler, he finds that he is the one getting hustled until he teams up with a down-and-out but resilient outcast named Ratso Rizzo.
