    Many queer adults today didn't get to grow up with the sweet, nostalgic experiences of young love the way straight folks do.

The 26-year-old, black, gay ballet dancer is a soloist with the Houston Ballet (the fourth-largest professional ballet company in the country) who is one of the brightest beacons of pride in the sky. “My 3-year-old son told me recently that boys don't do...

    September 3, 2019
    Vegan food gets a bad rap. Sadly, people sometimes equate it to just eating leaves and berries without giving it a try and seeing that you don’t need meat and dairy to be full of flavor. Take Verdine, our September Brunch of the Month, for instance. The Heights restaurant stemmed from the Ripe Cuisine food truck from chef-owner Stephan Hoban. Her philosophy of a “truthful, green dining” and having a 100% vegan eatery has put Verdine on the map as one of Houston’s...

    Everything is bigger in Texas — our great state is larger than France, Spain, Germany, and Japan. You can drive for 12 hours straight and still be within our borders.

The massive metropolis of Houston is decidedly flat, hovering barely 50 feet above sea...
