Gay Place

More gay in the A, that's what we say

GAY PLACE Q.0 Talk about your growth industry – the Gay Place Blog has been blowing up good and proper with new blog features and bloggers, and we aren't quite finished bustin' at the seams just yet. We've been hard at work, launching new regular columns, including our Monday News AggreGAYte, Tuesday's 'Mo Music, featuring roundups from local DJs, Hump (Our Allies) Wednesdays, Thursday Biznasty, and Friday Blingee. A month or so ago, we introduced you to our new bloggers, Rob, Julie, and Jimmie D. Since then, we've added a few DJs to the Tuesday mix, including the Glitoris (she of Tuezgayz and Church! club night fame), local lady fave DJ BJ, as well as bluesmaster and vinyl-jockey Nakia. We hope you are dancing in nothing but Pride Socks to the diversity of our ranks. The good news is that we are diversifying even deeper. Over the next few weeks, we'll be launching more and welcoming a few new faces to boot. This past Sunday, many Gay Place Krewe members gathered at Cheer Up Charlie's to celebrate the Austin release of the Magnetic Fields documentary, Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields. We are so grateful to and were so blown away by the sweet bands Charlie Belle, Terri Lord & Mollie Fisher, and the Fagnetic Fields. The entire night glowed with a show of community and support for independent film. Needless to say, we'll be throwing more parties and partnering with folks who are doing great things. We hope you'll join us. You can "friend" our naughty mascot, Dandy the Unicorn, on Facebook for some relevent chatter, but please do check the Gay Place listings and the blog for the best in news and updates. The easiest way to access our blog, our listings, all things gay in the gAyTX (and even that rascal Dandy), is to check out our supergay combo page at
