Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!


Guys & Galas

If you’ve been itching to get back into your black-tie finest, you don’t have to wait until October. Tickets are on sale for the Turtle Creek Chorale’s Rhapsody Benefit Gala. Proceeds benefit both the TCC and Black Theatre United and if you purchase VIP tickets, you’re in for several hours of non-stop entertainment and socializing (not to mention an open […]

Wham! Bam! Thank You, George Michael.

It’s been only five years since pop icon and part-time Dallas resident George Michael left this earth, but it feels like forever sometimes. We’ll always have his music to remind us of his boundary- and genre-pushing music, but now we have the chance to go a little deeper into his universe. This Saturday, The Life and Music of George Michael […]

We-e-e-e Will Always Love Her

When the night falls, loneliness won’t be calling this Saturday. Instead, it will be the triumphant voice of Mexican singer Fela Dominguez (pictured above) channeling Whitney Houston as she has countless time before, including Broadway’s The Bodyguard in Mexico and Spain. Fela in Concert: A Tribute to Whitney Houston presented by Irving Symphony Orchestra will feature all the Houston hits […]

Rhymes With Mariah

CinéWilde‘s back for another season! And now that they’ve received an Art Activate grant from the City of Dallas’ Office of Arts and Culture, expect even greater things than usual. Kicking off the new 2022 season, the 2011 Sundance Film Festival award-winning movie Pariah explores the coming of age of a person of color, examining every corner of their life. […]

Ah, Hell

True story: Our childhood dog was named Persephone. And that’s the only bit of Greek mythology we ever loved. Well, except the tweenage boner we got for Harry Hamlin in Clash of the Titans. But we’ll give the genre another chance as Persephone takes the stage alongside Orpheus, Eurydice and King Hades in the Broadway musical, Hadestown, coming to Winspear […]

Take A Polar Plunge—Right Here In North Texas

Even though we may not have the snowy backdrop for wintry shenanigans as other parts of the country, the cold waters of Lake Granbury will do the trick for us. If you’ve ever wanted to do a polar plunge—or made a resolution this year to break out of your comfort zone—you should definitely head out for a short road trip […]

Why We Love China

Cosmopolitans aren’t the only sweet and seductive pink martini we’ve loved for decades. The Oregon-based big band, Pink Martini, has been one of our favorite groups ever to see perform live. Fronted sometimes by the immensely talented Storm Large, it’s still the shows featuring vocalist China Forbes that get the little hairs standing up on the back of our arms. […]

Bingo’s Back, Baby!

After far too long, our beloved Gaybingo is back this month! Only a few tickets remain, so feel free to open a new tab and purchase tickets before you finish reading this. (A few are single seats if you’re interested in joining another table and meeting some new friends!) Appropriately themed, The Return of Gaybingo!, special guest Patti Le Plae […]

Happy New Year!

From all of us at He Said Dallas, we wish you all the happiest last day of 2021 and the best 2022 possible! Thanks for reading all year long and we’ll see you back here with a brand-new story bright and early Monday morning. Cheers!

Baby, You’re A Firework

We could drone on and on about things to do on NYE in Dallas, but we’ll keep this story short. We’ve already shared with you all the places you can celebrate the arrival of 2022 in the gayborhood or spend two days dancing in the glow of gazillions of lights and lasers, but if you’re looking for the biggest blowout […]
