Vacation used to be the only thing we planned weeks or months in advance. Yet now we have to use the same strategy for Gaybingo because it’s gotten so darn popular. Case in point: Seats are already selling quickly for Orange You Glad It’s Gaybingo? on July 21st (more than four weeks away!). Of course, the all-things-orange-themed night features everything you’ve come to love about the Resource Center fundraiser. Drag queens. Cash prizes of more than $2,500. Seeing your friends go to bingo jail. But you’ve gotta get your tickets fast or wait until goshdarn August seats go on sale. And right now that…

We love our job. We get sent cool products to review. Occasionally we get to travel on someone else’s dime. And nearly every day of the week we’re asked to drink and dine in the newest local restaurants. But in a position where we receive a lot of freebies, our biggest endorsement of an establishment happens when we return with our own credit card in hand. Smoky Rose falls squarely in that elite group. In fact, since the restaurant opened a year-and-a-half ago, hardly a week goes by that you won’t find us perched at the bar inside or at a table…

The LGBT experience is unique to each individual, but living in Dallas as an LGBT person of color has its own set of challenges and triumphs. As part of its continuing efforts to present the LGBT history of our city, The Dallas Way presents a roundtable discussion tomorrow night at the African American Museum of Dallas. Our Stories, Our History: This Is Us brings together a panel of leaders and important figures within the black LGBT community for a dialogue moderated by Byron Proutt and Candace Thompson. Each person will share his or her experiences and insights into this vital demographic of…

Ready to take a trip back to the 1980s and 1990s? Then you simply must snag tickets to MetroBall 13.

MetroBall 13 Friday, June 29, 2018 7:00 p.m. Tickets:…

The Pride Month celebrations continue, this time with popcorn! June’s CinéWilde presentation at the Texas Theatre will be Gus Van Sant’s 2008 movie, Milk, starring Sean Penn as LGBT rights activist Harvey Milk, alongside Josh Brolin, Diego Luna, Victor Garber, James Franco and Dennis O’Hare. The major release won two Academy Awards, one for Best Actor (Penn) and the other for Best Original Screenplay (Dustin Lance Black). It’s a powerful feature film and one that’s just as impactful on repeat viewings, but perhaps even more important as a bit of education for newer generations of LGBTQ people. Because without the courageous efforts of Harvey Milk, who…

We’re sent a lot of music to review. And soooo much of it is soooo bad. Therefore, we always reluctantly hit the play button, but always hope for the best. How excited are we that Grammy-nominated dance producer (and Dallas local) Tony Moran (above right) has written a song with Mike Greenly and Ryan Shaw that’s so ideally suited for the dance floor we can hardly stand it. Best of all, “I’m In Love With You” becomes a gay anthem that easily transcends the genre to be a high-energy chorus for the world. That’s in great part to the talented out singer Jason…

If you haven’t been to Komali in recently, you’re really missing out. First of all, as of this past March, the gay-owned eatery will hence forward be known as Casa Komali. They’ve moved the bar to the middle of the space, added a craft coffee shop with grab-and-go items and counter seating, debuted daily breakfast and lunch options, plus completely updated the decor for a more casual dining experience while still paying homage to the original. That’s hardly a makeover. That’s a resurrection. Of course, as excited as we are for the numerous changes, we’re all about the brunch. Because this feature isn’t called Remodeled Restaurant of the Week,…

Drag queens love to read. Sure, that typically translates to insults instead of books, but in this case the latter’s true. (OK, maybe a little of both.) That’s because this Thursday night and Thursday, June 28, Chanel LeMasters and Your Highness present Tall Tales and High Heels: ADULT Drag Queen Storytime. Rewind to your days as a kid for a moment. Remember sitting on the floor in a circle facing an adult reading you magical tales that taught you lessons of bravery, honesty and doing the right thing? This is not that kind of storytime. Instead, these fierce queens will…

The Rose Room is about to welcome the world’s most famous divas. And the drag queens taking over their souls for a night. A week from Sunday, join us at Icon The Show, a Rose Room drag spectacle that’s always a hoot and three-quarters. Featuring legendary drag superstars Hot Chocolate, Tasha Kohl, Raquel Blake and mistress of ceremonies Kelexis Davenport (pictured), you’ll be treated to a nonstop spectacle of music and comedy, but you’ll need to grab your tickets today for the best seating. Tickets run $25 for reserved floor and balcony seating or $35 for up-close-and-personal VIP seats. It’s…

Who’s ready to gay up this place? This Friday night, the monthly Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art gets a welcome LGBT twist with special Pride Month programming all night long. (Cue the Lionel Richie!) The highlight of the evening will be a special presentation of a show written by our good friend Robert Emery (pictured) and performed by company members from Uptown Players. From Outlaws To Icons: Dallas LGBT History promises to be as educational as it is utterly fabulous because everything Robert does is utterly fabulous. (Except maybe that one time he did that nude performance piece about an actual udder.)…
