    We can all agree that Houston is by far the best city in the country. That is a fact. However, sometimes venturing outside the city limits, even if for a day, is therapeutic. You can some peace of mind and away from the same people you see out each weekend. So pack your bags, get in your car and take a long weekend at one of these great spots that are closer than a few hours away. Rainbow Ranch Get your Brokeback Mountain on at this LGBT campground. Located not far out of Waco, this ranch has
  • Join These Houston Sports Leagues
    April 25, 2017
    There is nothing greater than that sense of nostalgia of being part of a sports team and playing out in the summer sun. Or so I have been told. I am the only person to be benched on a tee-ball team due to a poor batting average. The temperature is rising and the sun is out later and all we can think about is taking advantage of this Houston weather. And what better time to join a LGBT sports league in Houston to expand your social circle. And if sports still aren’t your thing, going to...
  • Find You GayBFF With New App
    April 14, 2017
    Logging onto a gay app looking for friends these days is a little like playing Russian Roulette: There is a one in six chance the first message you receive will be of an eggplant and not the cartoony emoji kind. Local Houstonian Ruben Jauregui, Jr. created GayBFF, a social media app aimed at connecting LGBTQ people and their allies through a platform that is specifically devoted to finding friendship and not hooking up or dating. Jauregui Jr. says the idea came to him from speaking with a
  • Five Questions for 'Sex Tips' Producer Matt Murphy
    April 14, 2017
    Girl is shy and studious. Guy is rugged and sexy. Who better to bridge the divide and get these two together than an observant gay man who also happens to be an expert in the field of sex? That’s the premise of the aptly named show Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man , running May 4-7 at Alley Theatre. The play is the third production of Lott Entertainment Presents’ current season—part of that group’s ongoing effort to bring more avant-garde theater to Houston....
  • Local Voices: Jack Berger
    April 4, 2017
    Jack Berger got a later start than most at age 46. Rather late in life, he says, "but I have been trying to make the most of my journey by getting involved and staying active ever since.” Berger is a Syracuse grad and “the extremely proud father of two sons.” Over the last 11 years, he's happily volunteered his time with the organization Bunnies on the Bayou, helping raise funds through events that then go to other nonprofit LGBT organizations. He even served as...

  • UH Red Dinner Keynote Brian Sims Spills the Tea
    March 29, 2017
    “Yes, I have loads of time to talk, I am waiting on a yoga class to begin,” is how hottie Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims began our phone conversation. It was a classic politician’s move of deflection because I spent the entire next 30 minutes imagining him in all sorts of positions. But I digress. Elected in 2012, he was the first openly gay elected state legislator in Pennsylvania and continues to be a strong advocate for LGBT rights. This year, he will serve...

    March 17, 2017
    You can call them redheads, gingers, carrot tops, but one thing remains the same: They are hot.

  • Local Voices: David Goldberg
    March 9, 2017
    “One of my friends once described me as a unicorn. I am gay, white, Jewish and from Laredo -- something that does not exist in reality,” David Goldberg explains. When he first moved to Houston, he didn’t know anyone in the LGBTQ community. So, one of his friends recommended that he volunteer for an organization that's serves that community. “I started to volunteer at Bering Omega,” Goldberg says. “It changed my life. I witnessed firsthand some of...
