Any gay who’s lived in Dallas a while remembers when the symphony would perform at Lee Park on Easter Sunday. We always enjoyed that concert so much because it was filled with music from pop culture. We love when highbrow meets lowbrow, after all. Like when Barefoot Contessa makes hot dogs. Well, this weekend, we can recapture some of those fond Easter in the park memories as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents a collection of movie scores from composer John Williams. So expect everything from Star Wars to Jurassic Park with a little Indiana Jones thrown in for good measure.…

Schedule an Uber now and get ready to head to the burbs. Because Denton plays host to superstar drag queen Sharon Needles this Saturday night. She’ll take the stage at 11:00 p.m., but there are plenty of other shenanigans on either side of her uproarious performance. Comedians DDT, Monna, Dax Bennett, Nick Fields and Joe Coffee kick off the evening before genre-busting, impossible-to-adequately-define Dezi 5 warms up the crowd for Ms. Needles. Best of all, advance tickets are a mere $10 with 100% of proceeds benefiting local non-profits and LGBTQIA individuals in need of help. Oh, and it’s an outdoor…

Feeling horny? French horny? Then get ready to pop a tromboner this Friday, the Oak Lawn Band presents its fourth annual March for Freedom concert, which will be held at the Latino Cultural Center. This years theme: Express Yourself. The multi-instrument performance brings together crowd-pleasing favorites from Aaron Copland and Steven Reineke and merges them on a playlist with hits from the likes of Lady Gaga and Madonna, with pieces arranged and and/or composed by OLB members Michael Eaves and Dave Velez. Meanwhile,  Don Jenkins (a.k.a. Donna Dumae) will be honored for 30 years of entertainment and service to the…

After seeing Moonlight, we always inspect the sand twice before setting down our towel on the beach. Great advice, really. If you haven’t seen the Oscar winner for Best Picture 2017, then you’ll understand that reference soon enough. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NJj12tJzqc Tonight, catch the wonderful flick for free at AMC NorthPark 15 with a panel discussion afterward. It’s presented by the Coalition for Aging LGBT, but anyone old enough to see an R-rated movie is welcome. And who doesn’t love a good R-rated movie? Moonlight Free screening tonight at 7:00 p.m. RSVP for tickets here AMC NorthPark 15 8687 North Central Expressway, Dallas cfa.lgbt

As much as we’d love to be on an actual beach this Sunday (oh wait, we are!), the next-best thing to a tropical vacay for us would be relaxing over a fantastic surf-and-turf platter. And for a relative bargain? Even better. We recently dined at Ocean Prime in Uptown for our birthday and we were super-impressed with the steaks and seafood, especially in a town with lots of great options in those categories. But the price tag can be a bit steep if you’re not saving up for a special occasion. But on Sundays, you can get a deal that’s quite the…

We love to go out for wings. But next Saturday, they’re of the angel variety. That’s when Purple Party Foundation presents Be An Angel and Angels After Dark benefiting Legacy Counseling Center at 7 for Parties. Attend Angels After Dark for complimentary Stoli Vodka cocktails (plus rum and tequila drinks, too) for as little as $45 per person ($65 VIP). Or truly be an angel by purchasing a ticket to the seated dinner, too, for $135, which also includes entrance to the Angels After Dark party. Entertainment will be provided by sexy, velvet-voiced Vince Martinez and the evening will be hosted by the always-hilarious, super-pious…

Leave it to Cazwell to create a new gay anthem for summer. The “Ice Cream Truck” singer knows what many gay guys want: hot men dancing, a lively jam and plenty of sassy commentary. Described as old-school hip-hop, the first single off his new music label Snow Cone, “Loose Wrists” dropped yesterday and with it a music video that could make men’s lace shorts an official trend (and a definite contender for group Halloween costumes). The song is an homage to a femme pride movement Cazwell’s been seeing on social media for a few years now. He says it’s time to…

We’ve always said there aren’t enough sharks in Broadway musicals. But the toothy fish are merely one of many issues facing a group of New Yorkers attending the opening of Barracuda, a floating casino and disco that attracts earthquakes, tidal waves and killer bees, just to name a few of our favorite things. Both a parody and homage to ’70s disaster flicks, Disaster! comes from the super-gay, super-creative minds of Seth Rudetsky and Jack Plotnick. Filled with popular disco songs of the era, the regional premiere kicks off June 30 at Onstage in Bedford and it’s going to be a must-see for…

Today is a somber day for the LGBT community. And most every American, really. Hard to believe it’s been a whole year since the senseless tragedy at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, but here we are. Rather than try to say something poignant that hasn’t already been written a thousand times, we invite you to find a bit of joy in the sadness thanks to SWERLK, a new song released last Friday by Scissor Sisters (!) and MDNR. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=256&v=yj6O-z8IwzQ If you haven’t already heard it, click on the lyric video above and try to keep from dancing while learning the best new…
