Come On, Dallas, Let’s HUMP!

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…

There’s A Porn Star In Your House!

Don’t look now, but you’re in the same room as a porn star. What? You’re alone? Exactly. You could be the next big thing in porn. Or, if you’re like us, the next average-but-big-enough-to-get-the-job-done thing in porn. One of our favorite events ever is Dan Savage’s HUMP! Film Festival and…

Happy HUMP! Day

We never planned to have back-to-back Dan Savage coverage this week, but we just got word today about one of our favorite-ever pornographic film festivals returning to Dallas. Yep, PORNOGRAPHIC!!!!! Now before you think we’re completely perverted for getting all-bold-caps-five-exclamation-points-excited about naked people on the big screen, we can totally justify it.…

Savagely Funny

Jesus pancakes. Capri pants. Martha Plimpton. Those three things make us happy on so many different levels, but when all combined, it’s practically a religious experience. Get ready for The Real O’Neals, an outrageous new comedy about a perfect-on-the-outside Irish Catholic family with plenty of secrets. Mom and Dad want…

To-Do Lisp

If there’s one documentary you watch this summer, girrrrl, this is the one. Do I Sound Gay? explores the phenomenon of “gay voices” and how people with more stereotypical affectations, lisps and high-pitched tones get along in the mainstream world and how their voices helped shape who they are now.…

Oakey-Dokey

It gets better. That’s not just the name of Dan Savage’s wonderful project for LGBT youth, it’s also the reality over at Oak. There, Chef Brian Zenner continues to outdo himself, most evident in the new lunch and dinner menus. Celebrated as one of the Top 50 new restaurants in…

Savage Pride

Though we still have 10 days until the big parade, Pride in the city officially starts tonight. That’s because Uptown Players is putting on its annual Dallas Pride Performing Arts Festival, nine days celebrating the LGBT experience in all its many forms. The festival begins tonight with The Last Session,…

It Gets Wetter

Today is Hump Day. Saturday, however, is HUMP! Day. Back in 2005, Dan Savage (the guy behind the It Gets Better campaign) challenged readers of his sex advice column to create homemade porn. He chose the winning film shorts and created the HUMP! Film Festival, which became wildly popular. This…
