  • Kia Comedy Brings the LOLZ
    May 27, 2016
    I had just finished watching a video on Facebook about a dog that was rescued and recuperated after maggots had taken off a lot of his face*. (Wow, grim way to start but bear with me.) Needless to say, I needed some humor when comedienne Kia Comedy ( no, not that Khia ) called me. “Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us,” Kia reassured. Kia Comedy is an Atlanta-based LGBTQ comedienne who is currently touring with her signature “Queer Comedy” shows. Kia has also had several articles published,
  • Carole King Shines in 'Beautiful'
    May 26, 2016
    I dare you to find a jukebox in America that doesn’t have a least one song written by Carole King.

    May 19, 2016
    Sure a gay girl can watch TV shows without a lesbian character in sight. But it sure is nice to be represented on screen once in a while. It adds greatly to the “normalcy” effect both for us and for our straight friends out here in real life. It’s all about visibility, right? Here are just a few of the great shows out there that can be watched on cable and/or Netflix that have a lesbian character or characters giving it extra points in my book for being more representative of our society.

    May 19, 2016
    You can’t get the full Texas experience without going to at least one country bar. In Houston, one of the best places to go to satisfy that country twang and perhaps lasso a cowboy would be Neon Boots Dancehall & Saloon . Just off Hempstead Highway, Neon Boots boosts the largest LGBT country concept in Texas and the largest gay bar in Houston. Crystal Murley is just one of the bartenders pouring Texas-sized drinks at the 11,000-square-foot dance hall/stage that has features performers like
  • Which Bar Should You Go To Based On Beyonce's Lemonade
    May 6, 2016
    This weekend the Queen of Houston returns home to perform The Formation Tour at NRG stadium. (If you were too busy with that last tragic relationship to get tickets, don’t worry she just added a second date in September.) But with all the hype surrounding this second “visual album,” the gays are likely to be blasting the tracks for months and hissing “Becky” at each other. Bey’s new album is as diverse as the Houston bar scene, so here are the places you should frequent based on the song that

  • Say Goodbye to March Madness
    April 5, 2016
    By Tammy Shaklee, Founder, He’s For Me Houston men, if you have ever lived in West Texas (or Northwest Oklahoma), you know that spring is really known for one irritating and unavoidable thing. Wind. Spring unleashes direct pole bending wind over the un-interrupted plains. And the damage is more than the meteorologist’s “skirt alert”.
