QUEER BARS in DALLAS. Any in New York, LA, San Francisco, Canada (since there are so many Canadians on RJ)

    Yes folks, there are plenty of gay bars in red, republican Texas. Believe it or not, many of the Lone Star State's NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS party hardy in many of the gay bars even though the following Sunday morning, they are in church listening to stupid homophobic diatribes from the red faced, loud mouthed preachers and pastors. Those Texans are real hypocrites.

    A queer bar isn’t a gay bar, but an alternative bar that creates an environment that’s open to all types of people. These places are just the right amount of trendy and casual so that both the heterosexual and homosexual crowds feel at ease. But for the gay audience, there is a particular appeal to the queer bar that the managers on Cedar Springs are finding harder to avoid.
    Queer bars offer an infusion of variety that is lacking in the traditional gay party scene.

    Forget Dallas and anyplace else in red, republican Texas. Go to either LA, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, NYC, and yes north into Canada. Most Texan gay men are NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS, who wants to put up with that right wing shiticon_question.gif

    Ummmm...you do realize that Canada is a COUNTRY, right? (10 provinces, 3 territories) Which cities in Canada were you inquiring about?

    Dallas is the worst city I've ever been to. And the gay bars there are absolutely horrifying.

    Whats your issue with Texas? Have you even been here? Did you have to resort to craigslist and glory holes on a vacation here? Are you just one of those hate filled queens? Fill me in I'm wondering where all this deep hatred stems from.

    Pretentious and stereotypical. Not a good combination.

    Houston is more horrifying, by like a factor of 10, compared to Dallas.

    Now, that being said, Dallas is, well, pretty lame. I'm very happy that I'm only 175 miles from Denver. That town has a fun, diverse scene, with something for just about everyone.

    I'm working in Austin at the end of March for about a week. I've never been there, and from what I've heard, it's much friendlier and more fun than Dallas/FTW or Houston. Any opinions or recommendations?

    Yeah, but at least they're friendly in Houston, which makes up for a lot in my book. I have zero tolerance for pretentiousness.

    OK, I'll give you that. the guys we met in Houston were pretty darn nice and hospitable. the places were horrific dumps, but they were friendly. I just wanted to give someone a vacuum and some lemon Pledge.

    I've lived in the DFW 19.5 years. Dalitude is real. Texans aren't just arrogantly ignorant, but, passive aggressive in the way that they do so.

    Many have never left the state and don't know how to be friendly nor behave properly. Very few can perform a decent introduction.

    And, they're filthy. Take a look at any parking lot in DFW.

    Automated traffic signals, or just plain courtesy. Forget it. It's Texas.

    Thing is...ignorant folks don't know they are.

    I've traveled extensively. Most places are SO MUCH better, particularly in The West.

    can't argue with this Chucky - we have 'Texas week' up here in Steamboat every January, and it's as close to stupid hell as I've ever experienced. Bunch of entitled, drunk, rude, arrogant people that just fuck shit up for the joy of fucking shit up. The town finally put their foot down after this year's shit show, and there will be some serious limits on the number that will be let in next year. If that doesn't work, it's so-long Texas week. Hate to pigeon-hole a whole population over what we go through up here, but it is telling.

    That's all propaganda. Austin is even more unfriendly and much more expensive than either Dallas, Fort Worth, or Houston. It is one of the most horrendously overrated cities. I lived in Austin for almost ten years and it sucked. It is a city of marginal personalities.
