Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

AIDS Services of Dallas

Take It Off!

After years of wearing neckties for work, we’re so glad we rarely have a job that doesn’t require us to go full-Windsor anymore. So one of our favorite events each year is No Tie Dinner, a wonderful fundraiser that takes a casual and fun approach to fundraising for AIDS Services of Dallas (ASD). Rather than packing thousands of people into a […]

Tie Breaker

How many days would you need to plan a fabulous dinner party? Two? Five? Fourteen? Well, we’re giving you 36. Because the 12th Anniversary of the No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party isn’t until Saturday, April 8. If you’re unfamiliar with this fundraising tradition, here’s the CliffsNotes version: Host a dinner party at your home with a few friends or several […]

Money For Something

Tomorrow! Tomorrow! We love you, tomorrow…. To paraphrase that singing ginger orphan girl, North Texas Giving Day is only 24 hours away! That’s right, North Texas Giving Day is upon us and it’s always one of the best days of the year to witness the generosity of those in our greater metropolitan area. Sure, we know there are chances to […]

Lose The Tie, Buddy

In less than two weeks, Black Tie Dinner will welcome thousands of the best-dressed people in Dallas. This Thursday, however, you’re invited to leave the tie at home and party with The Purple Foundation at the kick-off event for AIDS Services of Dallas’ 12th Annual No Tie Dinner and Dessert Party. All you have to do is RSVP to the […]

Sausages In The Spotlight

If you like to plan ahead, then we’re about to scratch that itch but good. Because you need to mark your calendar now for brunch on Sunday, September 4. Join us at the Texas Discovery Gardens in Fair Park for Broadway Brunch, a spectacular event benefiting AIDS Services of Dallas and No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party. There will be […]

Purple Reign

When we were younger, there were lots of things we could do for seven hours in a row. Now, we’re lucky if we can stay awake long enough for two back-to-back episodes of Transparent without having to get up to pee. Twice. But if you’re the more active type, you won’t have any problem whipping and doing the Nae Nae […]

Your New Best Friend

Calling all Bear Chasers! Sunday night is your chance to take home a furry new buddy. It’s all at the Teddy Bear Auction presented by the Dallas Bears. Honoring the legacy of Spanke Studer, it’s a night of craziness with a softer side. There’ll be several baskets for auction, filled with fantastic items. Best of all, proceeds benefit AIDS Services […]

Don’t Be A Maroon

Dust off your dancing shoes. No, not those. The purple ones behind your Cinco de Mayo corset. It’s time once again for Purple Party Weekend in Dallas and this is a big one. The event turns 15 years old. That’s a lot of tunes spun and glow sticks lit over the past decade and a half. The six signature events […]

Severing Ties

When it comes to -ollywoods, we love ‘em all. Hollywood. Dollywood. And the now-defunct Gomer Pyle-inspired theme park, Well, Gawwwwwwlywood. Yet there’s another one that is even more exotic and flamboyant than any of the above, and that’s Bollywood. Which is good because that’s the theme of the 10th annual No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party, presented by Purple Foundation. […]

Grrr. Grrrr. Grrrrr.

At some point in each of our lives, they brought us comfort by letting us cuddle up with them in bed, tickling their fat bellies and whispering to them our deepest, darkest secrets. Nothing like a bear to make us feel all warm inside. And nothing like a teddy bear to remind us of more innocent times in bed with […]
