    I'm heading to Fort Worth, TX at the end of the week. With the raid at the Rainbow Lounge this summer I was wondering how homophobe Fort Worth really is. Am I better to drive up to Dallas for some gay nightlife fun? Any recommendations for Fort Worth gay friendly places this weekend?

    I think the rainbow lounge incident was an isolated case. I have a friend who lives in Ft Worth and another in Dallas, but neither have really said they have issues with the cities and the gay community.

    Uh, I don't really visit them often, but if you're in Ft worth it might be worth it for you to goto the gayborhood in Dallas if you want a place to hang out.

    Gah, I wish I could give you a land mark or something because there is a fortune teller there who read my freind and I. It was a pretty cool experience (not to mention she seemed like she wanted to go down on said friend icon_lol.gif )

    Thanks for the info Muninn. I tend to agree with you about the Rainbow lounge, it sounds like it was a planned fracas, especially considering the date. I'm feeling that I may have a better time in the upper/lower Greenville area of Dallas.

    Give Fort Worth a chance before running to Dallas. Despite its somewhat conservative reputation, it is a pretty tolerant city. Don't let some isolated incident from last summer scare you away from Fort Worth because those types of incidents have occured in several cities across the country over the years.

    Look forward to the strip search when you're arrested at a gay club -- that could be hot!

    Since I will be staying in the downtown Ft Worth area I will check out what they have to offer (probably with some caution initially) and if I rent a car I'll also more than likely head up to Dallas where I know what to expect. If not it's only what I can find in Ft. Worth I guess.

    LMAO about the strip search!
