It’s always that last vodka soda that sends of over the edge. Actually, we tend to get worse hangovers from red wine. Mixed with vodka sodas. But whatever. Brunch is about to cure you of everything that ails you. At least if you head to Tillman’s Roadhouse in Bishop Arts District. Make reservations now for this weekend and drink as much as you want the night before (as long as you promise to take Uber or Lyft). Because you’re going to need a good excuse to carb-load like this. Get ready for that headache to go away and that frown to turn totally…

After last week’s draaaaaamatic reunion episode, we can’t wait for tomorrow night’s Season 10 finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race. We like each of the four finalists for various reasons, but we’re really pulling for Dallas diva Asia O’Hara to bring the crown (and golden Ru) back to Big D. As they have each Thursday this season, JR’s hosts a watch party from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and this promises to be the biggest event yet. With so much screaming, cheering and general rowdiness, passersby might think they’re outside a sports bar showing the World Cup. More like World D-Cup. RuPaul’s Drag Race…

Hard to believe that only 15 years ago in Texas, you could be arrested for backing your peach into an eggplant. Or vice versa. But it’s true. On June 25, 2003, sodomy was illegal. However, on June 26 it was no longer considered criminal activity (unless maybe someone forgot to shower). The landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision and its effect on the Lone Star State and 13 other U.S. states has been significant for many, whether symbolically or legally. Tonight, The Dallas Morning News poses questions to a panel of activists, experts and politicians on how this case helped lay the…

The timer ticks. Heartbeats accelerate. Then, the bomb goes off. Kaboom! Fortunately, in this case we’re not talking about a weapon of mass destruction, but a kinder, gentler, more socially conscious QueerBomb. And it’s set to detonate this weekend at Main Street Garden in downtown Dallas with an explosion of positivity and inclusiveness. Because Dallas celebrates Pride in September, our community often looks for ways to mark the national Pride celebrations each June—and this is one of the best. Think of it as a pride parade without all the corporate presence. Sure, we love supporting businesses that support us, but it’s nice…

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. Benefiting the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund (GDMAF), this annual music-filled extravaganza welcomes dance/pop acts Exposé and Shannon as headliners for the one-night-only event at S4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqk6y5Hmy9s More than 700 people are expected to attend, so you grab all your friends and plan to meet new ones while you boogie the night away.

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…
