This year, Pride Northwest, Inc. has made quite the promise: Portland Pride 2008 is going to Bring. It.

Oh really? Well, the Mercury is going to Bring. It. On! Inside, check out our homage to the cheer-tastic film of the same name, featuring Portland's brightest stars of the queer cheerleading squad (and their rivals, the anti-gay troupe). We've also got queers who bring it with guns, a head-to-head gay-off, and a polite request that certain gays stop bringing it, please. Plus: All the info you need to enjoy Portland Pride 2008, from the parade and waterfront festival to every dance night in town. You know what to do.
