Where the Girls Go/ATX: Fright Night Edition

Forget Halloween weekend, here in Austin we go full throttle all week long. Like a well-crafted horror film, this weekend raises your adrenaline one night at a time, just to slow it down come Sunday. Whether you let your guard down or not, this weekend the queers of ATX get extra fantastical. Read More | Comment »

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 »

Best queer-grrrl-tastic events this weekend and every weekend
 

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Non-ACL Edition

As Friday rolls in, travelers, music lovers, and festi-goers are rolling into town for ACL weekend one. Where will the queers be? Sure, some will be there, but a lot of us will not be joining the fringe- and floppy-hat-wearing crowds. 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. Feeling summer/fall conflicted? We can help, or at least help you forget, because no matter what season it is, this three-day weekend is going to be triple-digits awesome. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Double Your Pleasure Edition

Some weekends were made for double dates, double fisting (errr… no comment), and double the events. This is one of those weekends. Whatever your down-time mind craves, chances are it’s happening sometime between now and Sunday. So refill that coffee mug, and get yer eyes on the prize, ponies. There’s no use tiring out early, and missing the good stuff. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: What Day Is It? Edition

Today is the kind of Friday where I can’t tell if the week flew by, or crawled zombie-like towards its end. Regardless of how we got here, we have arrived. Clearly, that means it’s time to round up the best of the best queer events happening inside Austin city limits this weekend. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Rabbit Rabbit Edition

There’s something fleeting about August. Reminiscent of school years past, when the first day of that month meant the countdown to summer’s end. True, many of us aren't going back to school (buses and #2 pencils), but the magic still seems a bit more romantic this month. So, for the next three days, don't let a single summer second slip by.

SMTX Pride Gets Mayoral Nod

Silvia Sandoval has done it again. Sandoval, founder of Rainbow Night, a safe and regularly scheduled San Marcos LGBTQ event, says SMTX Pride started as just an idea for a Saturday San Marcos event when the mayor called her about a speech. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Off The Grid Edition

Oh, Austin, ya just can't get enough queer. And most weekends, you can fill those desires. This is not one of those weekends. Well, not at first glance. There's no official dance party, pool party, or music showcase. But, luckily for us, all you ever have to do in ATX is dig a bit, and voila! We'll let you in on some of the nooks and crannies we plan to explore. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Summer Fun Edition

There's something about summer weekends that bring out the kid in all of us. From daytime adventuring to staying up and out late, everyone's a little bit younger, a little bit less serious in July. For the next three days indulge that inner child. Dance your QT heart out, swim like no one's watching, and fall for a grrrl with a guitar. Read More | Comment »

Where the Girls Go/ATX: Make-It-Last Edition

Not the Last Edition, the Make-It-Last Edition. Every now and then, the weekend rolls around, and all I can think is: Please don’t end. But there’s a trick to never-ending weekends. They require a wide range of events, day drinking, lying in the grass, copious amounts of friends, and cute queer watching. Together, let's make it last all weekend long. Read More | Comment »
