  • 5 Types of Houston Gays
    July 21, 2016
    When visiting a city, you will encounter the normal gamut of gay men: twinks, otters, bears, cubs, jocks and everything in between. Houston gays differ from New York gays, Los Angeles gays, Miami gays and definitely Dallas gays. And that’s great. It makes turning Grindr on in a different city that much more exciting. It is like playing sexual Pokemon Go around the country; gotta catch them all. Here are some of the types of guys you will find in Houston that may not show up everywhere. The Gay

    Attention all “friends of Dorothy,” the smash hit Wicked will be defying gravity as it returns to Houston this month. Now I’m sure you have all heard at least one song from Wicked sung at Guava on karaoke night but here is your chance to hear actual professionals and not a twink who has had one too many vodka tonics. The Tony Award-winning musical is based on author Gregory Maquire’s book Wick­ed: The Life and Times of the Wick­ed Witch of the West . It tells the unlikely story of the friendship

  • Rich's Reborn
    June 22, 2016
    It's one of the most storied addresses in Houston nightlife. The dual-level mega-club at the corner of San Jacinto and McIlhenny streets in Midtown was ahead of its time when it opened in the 1980s. Rich's brought high-tech lighting and sound as well as larger-than-life music videos to the mostly gay masses who packed its enormous dance floor every weekend. The energy lasted for for more than three decades before the club shuttered in 2013 and saw management and name changes. This past spring,
  • The Dos and Don'ts of Pride

    This week begins the Pride celebration in Houston. Plenty of events will be held all over the city and here are some tips to make the most of Pride 2016, or at least not make the same mistakes from last year. DO Go outside your comfort zone Close that Grindr app and introduce yourself to strangers in person.

  • Antiquing in Houston
    June 17, 2016
    Antiquing can feel a lot like finding a diamond in the rough. It’s a little like meeting a long-term boyfriend at last call: there is a lot of clutter around but you were able to pick out the true treasure. At least for a while anyway. Houston has a lot of amazing antique stores and it is a great way to get an item with more character for those pesky friends and family who expect souvenirs. Sure you could get just another magnet that says “Houston,” but putting in effort will win you brownie
  • Overheard at Rainbow on the Green
    June 13, 2016
    They say loose lips sink ships. Well, what makes lips looser than a little bit of alcohol? At the past Rainbow on the Green, the liquor was flowing as well as a few words some wish could take back. I know I do. I mistook a Laura Branigan song as one by Taylor Dayne. Well, my faux pas wasn’t the only ridiculous statement slurred. We compiled a list of some of the most ridiculous things overheard at Rainbow at the Green and here are some of them. Drunk Girl: Gaymer? Oh, like gay and gamer! That is
  • Pride for the Girls
    June 9, 2016
    You can almost see the glitter in the air already. That’s because the 38 th annual Houston LGBT Pride Celebration® is almost upon us. June 25 th is the big day and downtown is where all of the action is. In 1977, it was downtown’s City Hall where Houston's own "Stonewall" took place with a protest against Anita Bryant that brought out people by the thousands. That makes having Pride in downtown Houston all the more special. If you’ve been to Pride before, you likely know what to expect. But...
  • 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. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical follows the flourishing career of King, along with her writing partner and first husband Gerry Goffin. Together they wrote songs that soared to the top of the charts like “Up on the Roof,” “Take Good Care of My Baby” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) Natural Woman.” The story includes her collaborations with other artists such as Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. “Yes,
