    1929 was a significant year in The United States. Wall Street crashes, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is created in New York City, and the Academy Awards debuts for the first time. That same year, Anne Frank, Barbara Walters, and Martin Luther King Jr. were born. These three well-known figures all seem to come from entirely different eras, but time is a tricky thing. The fact that Barbara Walters is still kickin’ highlights the fact that we are not terribly far from the civil rights era...

    This is the year of clear vision and we’re evolving beyond all past versions of ourselves. We’re staying hydrated, we’re supporting local art, we’re reading more books, we’re going to the museum instead of the club. With a new decade comes new adventures — all of which can be easily found in the Houston metropolitan area. Houston is filled to the brim with arts and culture just as widely diverse as the city itself, and it calls on us to explore with open...

    The holidays are hectic. Social hangovers are real, family hangovers are real, regular hangovers are extremely real, and financial hangovers are totally a thing. While recuperating from the holiday rush, everyone should spend at least one full day in pajamas, abandon all diet plans, and find something to do that is free or at least super cheap. Of course, a huge, bubbling city like Houston is full of hidden, free gems to experience while you and your wallet recover. View this post on

  • 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. Sure, you could always sit in your empty car in the Target parking lot, or you can choose one of these peaceful Htown places to collect your thoughts and calm your nerves before you head back to the fam.

  • Four Wheeling
    September 24, 2019
    Many queer adults today didn't get to grow up with the sweet, nostalgic experiences of young love the way straight folks do. Bringing a date to prom, slow dancing at the sock hop, wearing someone's letter jacket for all to see — many idyllic rites of romantic passage are a bit delayed for us. Put on your rainbow-tinted glasses, though, and you might find that a missed experience is just an opportunity for doing things on your own terms, on your own time. One absolute must on the...
