Dallas Gay Pride & Club Scene

By Charlotte Robinson, June 08, 2012
I always wanted to visit Dallas Texas so when the opportunity came up this week I went for it. The gay scene in Dallas puts Boston to shame. The gay ghetto in Dallas has bars, clubs & restaurants around the Cedar Springs Rd area. The big gay guys bar is called JR’s & fittingly the women have Sue Ellen’s. We had dinner at Dish which was fabulous. Then off to Round-Up which was like the gay version of Urban Cowboy minus the mechanical bull. The dance floor was packed with couples doing the two-step in a large circle that I refer to as a gay carousel. This was Thursday night yet the streets were filled with our LGBT community having a blast. The bars & clubs are far from dives but instead upscale venues that would challenge any other gay-friendly city like San Francisco or NYC. JR’s Bar balcony overlooking the street was overflowing with guys out & proud. Of course while in Texas my friend Joel gave us quite the tour of the city from where JFK was assassinated to the high end stores & homes in the Turtle Creek section of Dallas. Overall this is a great gay-friendly city to visit & a refreshing place to celebrate gay pride. This week even a Dallas City Council member kicked off LGBT Pride Month with a commencement in the Flag Room of City Hall including a signed proclamation, as well as supportive comments from elected officials & community leaders. So Happy Pride Dallas!! Exclusive Audio Interview with Orlando Del Valle who serves on the Board of Directors of The History Project. Del Valle’s photos are part of a significant art exhibit “Pride: 40 Years of Protest & Celebration” that The History Project is presenting in collaboration with the Boston Center for Adult Education & runs through June 30th at the BCAE more @ OUTTAKE VOICES™ OUTTAKE VOICES™ NOW ON HUFFINGTON POST...:) Hear Audio Interviews w/ LGBT Leaders @OUTTAKE VOICES™ SUPPORT OUR QUEST @ OUTTAKE™ EQUALITY STORE...:) View Our Historic Short Trailer on Gay Marriage

I love Dallas. We have a great scene here, better than the one other city I have visited (Fort Worth). I work in hospitality at a motel, but I can't imagine leaving Dallas. It has my favorite clubs, like Station 4, which is where I spend most of my time. I have a couple of friends, but one of these days I will make more. I sometimes stand by the bathrooms at the club and I meet people there. I am very, very gay and proud to live in Dallas with my friend Brad. I hope we go to the Block Party Saturday!
