You like to watch, don’t you? But isn’t it more fun to be a part of the action? That’s our philosophy regarding Dallas Pride Weekend festivities, at least. Instead of just being one of the crowd this September, you can volunteer your time to work a booth at the Dallas Pride Festival or even walk with an organization like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Find out about all the amazing volunteer opportunities by signing up online and waiting for instructions. You can even do your own stunts.

No more waiting. McQueen has arrived. After opening in very select theaters on July 20, the documentary about the revolutionary gay fashion designer Alexander McQueen has debuted in Dallas. After early-bird showings last night, the film officially opens today with reserved seating at Angelika Film Center. Celebrate this complicated man with an intimate look at his muses and demons alike. Because stories about geniuses never go out of style. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OjX3ZbsfbU McQueen Now showing Angelika Film Center Mockingbird Station 5321 East Mockingbird Lane, Dallas mcqueen.film Photo by Bleecker Street Media

Sunday Funday doesn’t have to happen every week. Sometimes, we enjoy Sunday Bumday. But that doesn’t stop us from craving a good brunch. And a little booze (though not as much as normal). Then again, sometimes the only buzz we crave is from a healthy dose of caffeine. That’s why the recently opened second location of Mudsmith at the Centrum building in the gayborhood makes it into our rotation, from weekdays to weekends. The small but well-executed menu features everything from a variety of toasts and breakfast sandwiches to larger plates. The herbed tomato avocado toast (above left) features smashed…

Not quite a bear, far from a twink. This is the category we’ve fit into most of our lives. But it’s also the basic definition of an otter within the gay community. Join your fellow hairy-chested men (and the non-otter men who admire them) for Dallas Otter Weekend happening August 10-12 at venues around the city. Events include the kick-off party and Mr. Dallas Otter Weekend at Woody’s, Otters in the Water at SISU Uptown Resort, and the Art/Gear/Clothing Exhibition and main event Woofstock Dance Party at Dallas Eagle. The weekend culminates with a Sunday happy hour at Hidden Door and the Otters Live Closing Party at Marty’s…

Not a square to spare. That perfectly describes our calendar once September rolls around thanks to all the parties, fundraisers and shows that take us into the holiday season. So it’s nice when there’s a community event that happens before things get super hectic. On August 11, Lambda Legal presents its signature Landmark Dinner at The Adolphus Hotel downtown. Featuring a premium open bar, an elegant seated dinner and a program filled with entertainment, the must-attend event also features speakers imparting valuable information on the fight for equal rights that our LGBTQ community faces today. It’s another step in joining forces to ensure…

Mariel Street likes to stick interesting things between buns. Lamb. Bison. Ahi Tuna. Marinated cucumbers. Hashbrowns. Gorgonzola. You’ll likely find the talented restaurateur at one of her many Liberty Burger locations around town, so if you see her when you visit, make sure to thank her for elevating the burger game in Dallas ever since the first location opened in 2010. It’s hard to believe it’s been around that long already, but we’re always discovering new reasons to love the local chain. From the high-quality ingredients and creative flavor combinations to hot new trends like the amazing meatless Impossible Burger, Street and her…

Hot enough for ya? If we hear that one more time, it’s going to drive us to drink. So, please, call us right now and scream, “Hot enough for ya?” When it comes to summer sipping, we always turn toward something packed with ice, such as a margarita. Or a bottle of Tito’s. As for wine, however, we gravitate toward something that tastes good super-chilled, typically a rosé that’s as pretty in pink as it is ready for poolside pounding. And now, there are two new wines hailing from Provence, France, available in the Dallas/Fort Worth market. We were sent…

Brisket tacos in the morning. Burritos con huevos at night. When it comes to meals at E Bar Tex-Mex, you make all the rules. With breakfast items served all day, every day, brunch is as much a state of mind as it is a platter of eggs. Of course, for the true brunch experience, the East Dallas favorite offers $3 mimosas and Bloody Marys Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. No matter when you go, however, kick things off with a bowl of queso (regular or E Bar-style with ground beef, guacamole and sour cream). The lightly spicy concoction has…

Simple as that. Best of all, this first-ever 18+ night at the bar is entirely free with your online RSVP.
