  • Mind Your Business: Michael's Cookie Jar
    November 12, 2019
    Mind Your Business is a new section honoring LGBTQ-owned businesses in the Houston area. We aim to bring visibility to these wonderful businesses, owned by members of the community. Nothing is better than the smell of freshly baked cookies. The aroma can instantly transport you to memories of your childhood and get your mouth watering. While there is much debate on the perfect cookie (I vote Snickerdoodle) there seems to be one for everyone. In Houston, there is no better place to branch out
  • Holiday Shows and Events Around Houston
    November 7, 2019
    One of the most jubilant times in Houston is when the city gets hit with its first fall chill after a long summer. Usually in late autumn, everyone breaks out their winter coats and scarves, getting into the spirit of the season with changing leaves, sparkling lights, and pumpkin spice everything. Our winters are comparatively mild to other parts of the country, so our holiday celebrations are exuberant, energetic, and a perfect opportunity to observe happy Houstonians in their colorful holiday

    Let’s face it, the holidays can be great, but they can also be stressful. For many LGBTQ people, family time is not always the most relaxing. Sometimes you need to just get away and with an election year on the horizon quiet places will be at a premium.

  • 45th Annual Texas Renaissance Festival Credit: Texas Renaissance Festival
    October 16, 2019
    Out of all 268,597 sprawling square miles of Texas, the biggest city closest to our state’s Renaissance Festival is Houston (sorry to our beloved frenemies, Austin and Dallas). Not to brag, but the Texas Renaissance Festival is Texas-sized — it’s the largest Renaissance Festival in the entire country. The Renaissance Festival is basically an excuse to nerd out as hard as possible and celebrate all things fantastical. Were dragons and fairies real parts of history? No. Have...

    October 8, 2019
    Houston’s LGBTQ nightlife is always evolving. Montrose continues to be the hub for LGBTQ culture but bar and club owners know that if you want to stay on top of the game you have to provide a fresh look, fresh entertainment and a fresh coat of paint. Once upon a time Rich’s was the premiere gay dance club. It was located in Midtown, before Midtown underwent its own evolution from warehouses to mixed use apartments. Then in the early 2000’s Rich’s went dormant while...
