austinComing up on September 20, Gay Pride will take over the always weird city of Austin, Texas. The day of pride will feature the Festival at Fiesta Gardens from 11am-6pm and a parade through downtown Austin. Tickets can be bought herefor $17 (or $20 at the door, cash only) and proceeds are donated back into the community through the Austin Pride Cares program.

We covered Austin in all of its weird glory back in March of 2013, which you can buy here to get the inside scoop on our favorite Texas city!

Our Top 5 Southern Destinations (That Are Not Mississippi)

17 04 2014

Drink and Click™ Austin, Texas Visits The Bat CaveMississippi is currently trying to pass a Senate bill that would allow business owners to openly discriminate against gays. The bill, better known as “Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act” had us wondering who the hell would want to visit Mississippi anyway when the American South is packed full of the country’s most exciting and beautiful cities.

So in honor of this preposterous, soon to be vetoed bill, we decided to name our top 5 favorite southern destinations that are not Mississippi.

1. Austin, TX

We covered Austin in our March 2013 issue, and for gays, it remains the mecca of the south. Tons of fun bars, clubs, nightlife, and culture have defined this weird city full of cute cowboys and eccentric charm

2. New Orleans, LA

You don’t need much convincing to visit New Orleans – this charming, crazy, up-all-night city is unlike any other in America; from its scenic bayous to its emerging food scene, NOLA is a national trendsetter, and its acceptance of gay rights is no exception. You can find our insider’s guide to New Orleans in our Oct 2012 issue.

3. Atlanta, GA

Atlanta is a liberal blue island in an otherwise mostly red conservative state. There’s a vibrant, approachable gay scene here filled with queer refugees from the entire region. You’ll find lots of LGBT venues to enjoy, (the best of which  you can find in our Sept. 2013 issue) with the only drawback being the driving distances between the most popular venues. And the food; my God, the food.

4. Charleston, SC Read the rest of this entry »
