Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

History

Designed That Way

Which came first, the rainbow flag or the pink triangle? The Grindr logo or 2(x)ist underwear? If it’s queer and iconic, you’ll find it in the new LGBTQ history book, Queer x Design by Andy Campbell. Inside, discover the stories behind some of the most memorable symbols of the past five decades. By default, this chronological representation creates a pretty […]

Stonewall Gets Graphic

Pictures make reading so much better! We think we might’ve actually made it through The Iliad with a few carefully positioned illustrations. But we don’t ever have to worry about epic poems for the rest of our life, focusing instead on reading only what we desire. Of course, our love of text-meets-pictures hasn’t waned, so that’s why our nightstand is […]

But no matter the source, it’s true. It’s vitally important to embrace and understand history, whether it’s as a family, a nation or […]

It’s called Lost Dallas and it’s the harrowing tale of a group of plane-crash survivors trapped in a remote section of Fair Park […]

Things That Go Bump In The Big D

There are plenty of scary things in Dallas. Like fake breasts made of cadaver fat. Men who still wear Ed Hardy. And Mexican restaurants that charge for chips and salsa. But you wanna see something really scary? Just in time for Halloween, super-sexy author Rita Cook has written a collection of real-life ghost stories about Dallas and surrounding areas and […]

History Channeled

Not all of us can count on having a professional biography published about our lives, or those of our family and friends. And our memoir keeps getting put on hold so we can sample liquor, hair products and Spanx for Men to keep you entertained and informed on a daily basis. (In fact, we’re toasting our great hair day this […]
