Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Let’s Talk-tober

Hello homo, has the workweek taken a toll that not even the best of under-eye concealers can correct? Well, pack those bags and head out to one of these jaunty adventures this weekend.

Weekend Calendar

Nipples to the Wind
Opens Friday, October 12th
Yeah, the title made us perk up, too. But it’s actually an old Texas expression for a “heads up, chest out” attitude – in this case, presented as a series of 14 monologues and kooky characters played by Jayne Anderson and Paula Coco. Think of it as the love child of The Vagina Monologues and Greater Tuna.

McKinney Performing Arts Center
Tickets $25-30

Fall Plant Sale – Forth Worth Botanic Garden
Saturday, October 13, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
