It’s not quite necromancy, but the ATX Television Festival does have a remarkable way of reviving interest in long-departed shows. Now, 10 years after it shuffled off this mortal coil and cathode ray tube TVs everywhere, Queer as Folk will be feted at the festival in June, with its creators and select cast coming together for a special reunion event.

Where the Girls Go/ATX: December Chill Edition

We’re baaack – still full from last week’s fest of food and disheartened with the current state of affairs. No, not Katherine Heigl’s new show, we knew that would be disappointing… . Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Extreme Weather Edition

Baby, it’s cold outside. But just because the temperature has decided to take a nosedive into winter – Fall? Where are you, Fall? – doesn’t mean we’re staying in. So bundle yourself tighter, drink a hot toddy, and get ready for a leztastic weekend. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Frisky Fall Edition

Fall might have arrived in Austin over night, but these cooler temperatures aren’t keeping anyone inside. In fact, with that extra hour of night skies, autumn is clearly telling us to stay out later.

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Make a Difference Edition

Do the things we do to make a difference, make a difference? Like yesterday’s Spirit Day, ya know: Wear purple. End Bullying. Or PFLAG’s month-long OUTober fest, or that – come Sunday – we walk for AIDS. A difference in the heart is a start. This weekend, party like a rockstar while supporting the fabulous, glitterous community we’re lucky enough to call ours. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: 21 Days to Halloween Edition

It’s no secret that Where the Girls Go loves Halloween. We’ve been talking about it for months. Personally, only Pride compares to All Hallows Eve, and luckily for me – and you – Austin feels the same. So forget about AMC’s FearFest and Walking Dead marathons, this weekend starts our very own October scarefest. Get ready for chills, thrills, and killer QTs. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: The Post-Pride Edition

As we pack up the glitter, glowsticks, and strands of baubles and beads; cut off Stargayzer wrist bands, and slide our aGLIFF badges into scrapbooks, Pride Season feels officially put to bed. Lucky for us ATX queers, there's never a lackluster weekend here. You may wish to not pack away that glitter. You're gonna need it. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: PRIDE Edition

Ya know that saying, "Christmas only comes once a year?" Well, in Austin, we get two. Two Gay Christmases that is, and it's one of our city's most magical of merits. From June's nonconformist QueerBomb, to this weekend's more traditional Pride, there's more than enough gay celebrations for any and all. But don't take my word for it. Go out there and live it up.

Skirt Chasin' Smirk Chasers

One of the uniquely human senses binding all walks of life is the sense of humor. And the indicator of a good comedy show isn't just the quantity of laughter, it is the variety. Last week, Austin Pride kicked off with a special show that highlighted just that variety. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Music & Movies Edition

Stargayzer and aGLIFF in the same weekend! It’s a cross between heavenly queerness overload, and a cruel game of pick and choose. With that in mind, I’ll try my best not to overwhelm with even more lady/queer-tastic events, but either way, you’re probably going need a power nap after work to rockstar-it through this weekend.

BFFs: Lady Bromance or Romance?

What would it take to get you up a telephone pole despite a crippling fear of heights? For Tara Karsian and Andrea Grano, the ladies who created BFFsscreening tomorrow as part of aGLIFF – it was an attempt at movie magic. Luckily for them, it was a successful attempt that offered one of the most touching (and hilarious) scenes in their 95-minute film. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: September Edition

Sometimes the longest weeks are the shortest ones. Tuesday’s start date left a heavy fog that made the last few days feel like a bad omen. Lifted only by last night’s serious Beyonce-bration, we’re now wide awake, with clear skies and a need to shake off the day job. And what better way to do that than partying, laughing, and lounging with the coolest QTs? Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Labor Day Edition

For a weekend that marks the unofficial end of summer, the temps are hitting towards triple digits. But pumpkin beers are on shelves, and Halloween decorations can be seen in store isles.
