Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Must Do: Events & Culture

Cinco De Drinko De Vino

If you didn’t get enough early Cinco de Mayo celebrations this weekend, mark your calendar for a queer event on the actual holiday. This Thursday, the Cedar Springs Merchant Association hosts its May Wine Walk on Cinco de Mayo (which translates perfectly to May 5 in English). Instead of the stereotypical margaritas, sip on wine all evening as you work […]

We Like Big Thickettes And We Cannot Lie

It’s a big week for the Turtle Creek Chorale. Not only did they start selling tickets to the first shows of the men’s chorus’ 42nd season on Monday, this weekend marks the return of Miss Big Thickette! After a two-year hiatus caused by Penelope Pandemic, this huge fundraiser benefiting Prism Health North Texas and LifeWalk returns to the stage at […]

Purple, People Who Need Purple

Some 20-year-olds grab our attention more than others. And that most definitely holds true for the 20th-anniversary edition of Purple Party Weekend. Taking place May 5-9, the epic circuit party returns to Dallas for five days of heart-pounding bass pulsing through a variety of sexy events. Tickets are selling quickly, so if you want to get your spot on the […]

Seniors Are Having A Moment

We’re all getting older. Proof: You were younger before reading that last sentence. If you’re more statistics-driven, however, it’s incredible to note that North Texas has more than 300,000 LGBT senior residents. And we’ll all be there some day, sooner than any of us would like. That’s one of the main reasons the Coalition for Aging LGBT is such an […]

42nd Treat

If you’re reading this early in the morning, set your alarm for 9:58 a.m. That’ll give you two minutes to get your device out and to the Turtle Creek Chorale website. At 10:00 a.m tickets go on sale for the first two shows of their exciting 42nd season and you’re going to want to get to clickin’ for the best […]

Fine Art. Fine Wine. Extraordinary Humans.

We all have at least one bare wall in our homes that we don’t quite know what to do with. Well, this week, the answer could be to hang a Picasso on it. Or a Warhol, Chagall or Dalí. The Gay & Lesbian Fund for Dallas (GLFD) hosts an event this Thursday at Martin-Lawrence Galleries at Galleria Dallas. GLFD members […]

It’s Hunting Season At Trinity Groves

A man and his huevos. What a beautiful sight. Well, this Sunday, our strange fetish will be celebrated at an Adult Easter Egg Hunt at ArtPark at Trinity Groves. Without the Jesus-and-bunnies themed event we enjoyed for decades at Turtle Creek Park, this new Easter in the Park is a fabulous Sunday Funday alternative. There will be a DJ spinning […]

The Night Dallas Drag Queens Go To The Opera

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it 69 times. (Because 69’s our favorite number, of course.) The Rose Room dazzles as one of the best drag venues in the nation, if not the world. And now, the queens of the Rose Room and their fearless leader, Cassie Nova, are heading to an even bigger, better, more beautiful stage—at the […]

Turtley, Creeky, Artsy

Ready to bask in some fresh air? (And hopefully some sun?) One of the city’s best arts festivals returns for a spring edition this weekend. The Turtle Creek Fine Arts Festival kicks off this Saturday at the 43-acre Reverchon Park with up to 125 painters, photographers, sculptors, glass blowers, jewelers, and crafters showcasing their talents. The festival also features artist demonstrations, live […]

Rainbow Days Of Summer

Two months from today, Fair Park will get a whole lot gayer. And even more LGBTQier. It’s been a while since the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade and Dallas Pride Festival looked the way they should after two years of virtual and modified celebrations due to that whole pandemic thing. But this year, it could (and should) be bigger and […]
