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.)…

If we could HUMP! every day, we would. That’s because Dan Savage’s amateur porn film festival makes us so happy (and sometimes horny). The festival rolls through Dallas every couple years and features the funniest, craziest, sexiest short films you’re likely to ever see on a big screen. Well, it’s time once again to dominate the submissions with your own foray into being an adult star for a day. You don’t have to get naked, but it’s so much more fun if you do. You can get away with whatever your devious imagination conjures up, except anything involving children, animals or poop.…

We came for the West End girls, we stayed for the chicken fried steak and eggs. – Pet Shop Boys, 2018 Funny enough, that was our same experience when we sashayed into 3Eleven Kitchen & Cocktails last weekend. Except we were looking for West End guys. The chicken fried steak thing holds true, however. Once the city’s hottest entertainment district, Dallas’ West End Historic District fell out of favor when other shiny new destinations popped up, but thanks to businesses like 3Eleven, this downtown area is back in a big way and still growing stronger. And lots of foot traffic from…

The art of criticizing can be tricky. Just ask Samantha Bee. But we live for sass in any form, which is why we’re eager to see Stage West’s one-night-only performance art piece, Critical, Darling! Starring Brigham Mosley (pictured), next Wednesday’s show has everything: drag, popular music, original songs, a healthy dose of millennial perspective, and all sorts of queerness. Grab your tickets now and support this unique voice in the Dallas-Fort Worth community. If you love it, great. If not, there’s always Yelp. Critical, Darling! Wednesday, June 13 Tickets: $20 (or $10 if you’ve already purchased a ticket to Hir during its run) Stage…

It’s Pride Month, y’all. But you probably already knew that. Especially if you’re L, G, B or T. To our straight readers, perhaps it’s not as commonly known. Regardless, with Dallas Pride falling each year in September, we love traveling around the country to see what Pride is like in other cities. And why take a plane when a road trip will do? PRIDE San Antonio takes place this year the last weekend of June/first weekend of July. That may sound like a long festival, but it’s actually only two days (June 30 and July 1). Of course, you’ll need a great place…

Gays have discriminating palates. At least that’s a stereotype we gladly embrace. Along with being smarter, funnier and infinitely more handsome than our non-queer brethren. So it’s always a surprise that most Oak Lawn/Cedar Springs gayborhood restaurants are relatively basic. Where, oh where, is the finer food? If you ask us, that wish can be fulfilled once you step inside Orno. The small, family-owned bistro next door to The Round-Up recently celebrated a year in business, a feat worth celebrating given Dallas diners’ way of moving on to the NBT (Next Big Thing). But if you’re like us, you’ve never been into…

Summer always has a way of sneaking up on us. Every January we pledge that THIS will be the year we finally get that rock-hard swimsuit body we’ve always drooled over dreamed of. Yet every June, we end up having to look at our nude bods in the mirror from a great distance. Sideways. With one eye closed. Well, no matter what state your body happens to be in this season of heat and exposed skin, adorable personal trainer Branden Hayward (pictured) has some help. Not only does he have some quick workout and diet tips, they’re also designed for better sex. Along…

Porcino in Italian means pig, but don’t let that fool you. Nearly everything on the menu at Porcinos Southern Kitchen has a down-home, deep-South flair that will have you screaming, “Mama Mia!” for entirely different reasons. From the service to the food, everything was practically perfect in every way. Let’s start with the cocktails, our favorite appetizer on any menu to be honest. After going to so many restaurants lately with drink lists that are devoid of any originality, it’s a pleasure to browse a collection that doesn’t make us cry in despair. But at Porcinos, there’s an inventiveness and whimsical touch in every boozy…

106. That’s the number some meteorologists are predicting as the high temperature this coming Saturday. And that’s before the heat index. Short of filling your bathtub with ice and spending your entire weekend submerged, a pool party is pretty much your best bet for beating the heat—and meeting great guys in your demographic. Sorry, old men (us included), you can’t go. The upcoming Summer Fusion Pool Party presented by Resource Center’s young men’s group, FUSE, is open only to guys between 18 and 29 who like other guys. It all takes place at the home of Tim and Dan, who have generously…

There’s something deep in our DNA that attracts us to the bad boys. Just ask Sandy in Grease. Rule-breakers are sexy, no matter how you analyze it. Maybe it’s their attitude, maybe it’s the smell of all that leather. That’s why we have all the feels for Turtle Creek Chorale’s season-closer, an adrenaline-rush of country music titled (you may have guessed this by now) Outlaws. Featuring artists who always paint outside the lines, from Dolly Parton to Willie Nelson, the show celebrates those who teeter between fringe and mainstream so deftly. For three performances at Moody Performance Hall, June 8…
