Dancing With the Porn Stars Balls-out ballroom dancing pairing giddy novices with the porny beau-hunks that typically only provide dirty thoughts and dirtier hands.

Lezbo-a-Luau Grass skirts? Coconut bras? Drag kings? Is this a movie or a stereotype? Regardless, there will be dancing and there will be a buffet (with fish! Maybe). 7 p.m. June 2 at Hampton Inn Lake Buena Vista, 8150 Palm Parkway; $20.

One Mighty Party Even if Chisholm does rhyme uncomfortably with "jism," old Johnny Chisholm is still sticking his wettest finger into the gayest circuit, this year raising hair with Donna Summer, Kathy Griffin, Eddie Baez, Roland Belmares and Phil B. 8 p.m. June 2 at Disney-MGM Studios, Lake Buena Vista; $85-$95;

Underworld: The Circus If the aging house-thump of Junior Vasquez doesn't knock you to the floor, then perhaps a wayward stilt walker, broken-heeled drag queen or tipsy contortionist will. This particularly gay obstacle course is both a kickoff party and a benefit for the Human Rights Campaign. Suffer for love. 9 p.m. May 31 at Destiny Nightclub, 7430 Universal Blvd.; $20; (407) 351-9800.
