  • Vocal Local: Alan Prewitt
    January 15, 2018
    Like most college freshmen, Alan Prewitt showed up on the Texas A&M campus overwhelmed and a little intimidated. The self-described “quirky band nerd” wasn’t sure how he would fit in at this conservative university of more than 50,000 students. So he threw himself into every organization he could—from student government to band—and soon developed a social circle he still counts on today. Fast-forward a few years and Prewitt found himself once again in a new...

  • Brunch of the Month: Hungry's
    December 13, 2017
    One of the hottest spots to brunch these days has an old name but a very new look. Hungry’s has been a staple in Rice Village for many years. But last year the Mediterranean-focused concept debuted a completely new, two-story restaurant, complete with a large patio, upstairs lounge and balcony overlooking the bustling shopping district. While the brunch menu is served both upstairs and downstairs in the main dining room, it’s the 21-and-up upstairs patio that’s the focus of...
  • 7 ‘Must See’ Events this Holiday Season
    November 15, 2017
    When it comes to the holidays, our attention inevitably turns to party hopping strategies and how much wine will be necessary to get through family gatherings. But this is also a great time to connect with friends and experience events together that only come around once a year. Here are a few that we’re looking forward to in the coming weeks. Downtown’s Discovery Green puts on a great show at the holidays, complete with an ice skating rink. And each year Rainbow on Ice lures LGBT...

    October 26, 2017
    Brunch. It’s arguably the most important meal of the gay week. So we’re launching a new series exploring some of the best spots to enjoy the perfect weekend spread. From killer cocktails to the tastiest of tacos, we’ll break down where you should be brunching right now! When it first opened in Midtown in five years ago, Gloria’s Latin Cuisine was far from an immediate brunch hit. In fact, the first local outpost of the Mexican-meets Salvordorian concept opened rather...

  • Pride Crosswalk Coming to Montrose
    June 16, 2017
    Montrose will soon have a new, physical tribute to the LGBT community just in time for this year’s Pride celebration. Work will begin this weekend on a pride crosswalk at the intersection of Westheimer Road and Taft Street. Initially envisioned as a tribute to a young man tragically killed in a hit-and-run accident there last year, the project has taken on a broader significance as it honors the support and friendship many find in Houston’s LGBT community. Steered by a special...
  • LGBTQ Storytellers Take the Stage

    Everyone has an interesting story to tell. That’s the premise behind a new live show debuting in June featuring stories from Houston’s LGBTQ community. The inaugural performance of Story Hole —which organizers hope to make an ongoing series—will showcase unique, real life tales from local entertainers and writers around the theme “My First Time.” The show is set for June 22 at the Rec Room on the east side of Downtown.

  • 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.
