Local filmmaker Q-Roc Ragsdale is a human dynamo and it seems like she has her hand on the pulse of everything. She works with the Fahari Arts Institute, The Butch Boi Project, the DFW Senators and those just barely scratch the surface. But perhaps her biggest venture is her online TV network Q-Roc TV. Through her network she ” celebrates uniqueness and differences of the queer community through an eclectic mix of individual features, special events coverage, celebrity guests and man-on-the-street interviews.” And that is no lie. You can see her work either on the site or her YouTube channel.
So that she can get her new season underway, Ragsdale is hosting a fundraiser for the network. And this ain’t your stuffy, dressy kind. She’s scheduled the Q-Roc and Roll LGBT Skate Party for March 11. Yes, you can do your best Xanadu/Starlight Express moves while contributing to the network that aims “to provide quality programming that shows queer people in a positive light.” Did you ever think shooting the duck would have such an impact on the community?
I guess roller blades are OK, but I’m hoping to see some old school, four-wheel, lace-up skates on that rink. With sparkles!
