Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Del Shores

Another Del-icious Comedy

When Del Shores puts pen to paper, laughter’s soon to follow, whether it’s on stage or on the big screen. As a followup to his smash turn-of-the-millennium hit, Sordid Lives, Del filmed a sequel that debuted in 2017 called A Very Sordid Wedding that took us back into the trashy and hilarious world of Winters, Texas. Now, he’s converted that […]

Dallas Pride Anywhere, Everywhere

Somewhere in town, there are some very happy City of Dallas workers. Because with in-person Pride events canceled for the year, they’ve been spared the tedious task of glitter removal from the streets of Fair Park. But they better start getting prepared for next year because it’s going to be a big, rainbow-hued, sparkly mess when Dallas Pride returns in […]

Come Del Or High Water

What a weird, weird Pride Month this has been. Yet it’s still hard to believe the Big Rainbow Celebration ends tomorrow. Luckily, the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund (GDMAF) has scheduled an event to send June out on a high note. Tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m., the organization joins forces with The Dallas Wings to present Rise Together. Hosted by […]

Your Delly Devotional

Del Shores loves to mix things up and get messy. That goes for his movies (Sordid Lives), TV shows (Sordid Lives: The Series) and plays (Southern Baptist Sissies)—as well as his personal life. So it should come as no surprise that the talented, tell-it-like-it-is writer brings loads of candid comedy to the stage any time he performs a one-man show. This time around, Del Shores: The […]

Mondo White Trasho

You can’t keep a good Brother Boy down. With the phenomenal success and long-extended run of A Very Sordid Wedding at The Texas Theatre, we’re thrilled to announce the return of the original Sordid Lives to the big screen for one night only tomorrow. The endlessly quotable, gut-bustingly funny look at the inhabitants of a small Texas town will always be one of […]

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something White Trash

Shake our family tree too hard and more than a few people with red necks will fall out. Perhaps that’s why we have such a love for the Sordid Lives franchise. We can practically quote every line of the original 2000 film. The entire Sordid Lives: The Series is a permanent fixture on our DVR. And every one of our nieces and nephews […]


There are three gay rights of passage that all lead directly to Del Shores. See Sordid Lives. Memorize the script to Sordid Lives. Amaze your friends at their next screening of the classic film. But there’s another Del-related bucket list item that those of us in Dallas take for granted: seeing him perform live. Sure, the wickedly funny man has […]

And Many Naked Returns

Let’s all just pause for a moment and mentally absorb the photo directly above this sentence. We probably should’ve just slapped a date and website on it so you wouldn’t have to read any actual text. But then we’d be without a job. And a purpose. So when you’re done ogling and trying to figure out which parts connect to […]

Not-So-Sunny Shores

Del Shores, the creative genius behind the wickedly funny Sordid Lives movie and TV series, has a dark side, too. Or should we say, a black-and-blue side. In Blues for Willadean, the film adaptation of his heart-wrenching play, The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife, domestic violence takes center stage. And it may be a little difficult for […]
