Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Burlesque

Hey, Cis Sis, It’s Christmas!

We write about drag queens a lot here at He Said Dallas. Because we love them oh-so-much! But sometimes, we want to make sure that our cisgender sisters get some adoration, too, and burlesque performers have always been among our favorites. After all, they often represent extreme versions of femininity (like drag queens), they have a ribald sense of humor […]

Galentine’s Booty

Our favorite Galentine’s Day activity will and will forever be watching its Amy Poehler-fueled origin story on Parks and Rec. But we think this weekend’s Kennedy Davenport-fueled Galentine’s Day Party at Booty’s Street Food at the Deep Ellum Hostel might be a very close second. Host Barbie Davenport Dupree leads a lineup of performances from additional special guests, including Mr. […]

We’re Nuts For Sluts!

Ready to start a new holiday tradition? Due to that whole pandemic thing ruining plans left and right, the annual production of The Slutcracker goes digital this year with a streaming version titled appropriately enough, Slutcracker: The Movie. Comprised of archival footage from last year’s season, people around the world can witness the irreverent beauty of this unique interpretation of the […]

Burly-esque

Man, oh man. Ohhhhhhh, man! The world of burlesque is about to get a healthy dose of testosterone thanks to the gorgeous Patti Le Plae Safe who’s stepping into some tall producer high heels to put on One Night of H’ story, an all-male revue. Kicking off this Saturday night, the unique production brings together five of the hottest men […]

Transfabulous!

We suspect somebody told Mister Liqueur as a child that one must control one’s own destiny. Well, the trans man also known as Stephen really took that to heart. The result? Topping Off!: An All-Trans Revue coming to The Nines in Deep Ellum this Friday night. The fundraiser features several performers putting on one hell of an entertaining burlesque-style show […]

Please Ask, Don’t Tell

Sometimes we need a change of scenery. Like one with fire breathers, magicians and acrobats. That’s just a sampling of what you could experience any given night at the new Don’t Tell Supper Club downtown. Yeah, we know, the name conjures up difficult memories of closeted military personnel, but we also think it’s good to finally associate those two words […]

Queer As A Rainbow Unicorn Riding Cher To Brunch

Get ready for the gayest, lesbianest, biest, transgenderest, outright queerest event of the summer. Aside from our weekend cotton candy martini pool parties. This weekend, Texas Queerlesque Festival returns to Dallas with more than 60 performers, six headliners, networking opportunities and, oh, a little thing called Unicorn School. It’s four days of burlesque and cabaret-style acts that showcase the immense talent of […]

Tuesday Titillation

The work week is barely underway, but we’re sure you’re already looking for a mental escape. And because it’s Tuesday, we have two documentaries to share with you, each showcasing eclectic groups of performers ranging from drag to burlesque that will take your mind off all that pesky job stuff. First up is Burlesque: Heart of the Glitter Tribe, which focuses a lot on […]

Visit The North (Stripper’s) Pole

There are few holiday traditions we find more excruciating than attending a performance of The Nutcracker. Unless there’s a twist that grabs our attention. In Addison, The Beulaville Baptist Book Club Presents: A Bur-less-Q Nutcracker! tells the comedic tale of a version of the ballet performed by burlesque performers. But The Nearly Naked Nutcracker presented by Broads and Panties Burlesque […]

Bodacious Pride

We have zero interest in going to a female strip club. (Unless their buffet is Zagat rated.) But slap a pair of tassels on those titties, put together a theme night and it’s a whole different ballgame. It may surprise some to learn that we’ve been known to frequent the burlesque shows at the Texas Theatre. But it’s not about […]
