Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Dan Savage

Get Naughty For The Camera

Ready to get naked? You’ve probably figured out over the years that we love Dan Savage’s HUMP! Film Festival and its refreshing approach to amateur adult entertainment. Everyday people (like you!) can fulfill their pornstar fantasies by creating movies for the touring fest. Submissions are due Friday, September 13 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific, so there’s plenty of time to write […]

Potty Humor

We’ve all probably thought of names for our drag alter egos, but what about our take-a-drag personas? You know, for those times we toke up to get down. Here are the ones we’ve narrowed down to for ourselves: Sativie Nicks. Him-ily Blunt. Ruth Bader Ganjburg. Or maybe we’ll gather some friends to form an epic girl group so we can use all the […]

Come On, Dallas, Let’s HUMP!

If we could HUMP! every day, we would. That’s because Dan Savage’s amateur porn film festival makes us so happy (and sometimes horny). The festival rolls through Dallas every couple years and features the funniest, craziest, sexiest short films you’re likely to ever see on a big screen. Well, it’s time once again to dominate the submissions with your own foray into […]

There’s A Porn Star In Your House!

Don’t look now, but you’re in the same room as a porn star. What? You’re alone? Exactly. You could be the next big thing in porn. Or, if you’re like us, the next average-but-big-enough-to-get-the-job-done thing in porn. One of our favorite events ever is Dan Savage’s HUMP! Film Festival and we’ve been toying with the idea of filming a submission […]

Happy HUMP! Day

We never planned to have back-to-back Dan Savage coverage this week, but we just got word today about one of our favorite-ever pornographic film festivals returning to Dallas. Yep, PORNOGRAPHIC!!!!! Now before you think we’re completely perverted for getting all-bold-caps-five-exclamation-points-excited about naked people on the big screen, we can totally justify it. Back in 2014, Dan Savage sent his HUMP! Film Festival to […]

Oak Cliff Gets Savage

Let’s talk about sex, baby. Or better yet, let’s look to a different salt-and-pepper favorite: Dan Savage. The wildly popular gay rights activist, syndicated columnist, It Gets Better founder, podcaster and all-around talented heartthrob brings his Savage Love podcast and sex advice column to life at the Kessler for a rescheduled appearance on May 11. Presented by WordSpace, a North Texas non-profit literary arts group, the […]

Savagely Funny

Jesus pancakes. Capri pants. Martha Plimpton. Those three things make us happy on so many different levels, but when all combined, it’s practically a religious experience. Get ready for The Real O’Neals, an outrageous new comedy about a perfect-on-the-outside Irish Catholic family with plenty of secrets. Mom and Dad want a divorce, son Kenny is gay, Jimmy has manorexia and […]

To-Do Lisp

If there’s one documentary you watch this summer, girrrrl, this is the one. Do I Sound Gay? explores the phenomenon of “gay voices” and how people with more stereotypical affectations, lisps and high-pitched tones get along in the mainstream world and how their voices helped shape who they are now. Featuring interviews with Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn, Don Lemon, Dan […]


It gets better. That’s not just the name of Dan Savage’s wonderful project for LGBT youth, it’s also the reality over at Oak. There, Chef Brian Zenner continues to outdo himself, most evident in the new lunch and dinner menus. Celebrated as one of the Top 50 new restaurants in 2012 by Bon Appetit, the restaurant has continued on its […]
