(HOUSTON) — Everyone deserves a drink, but today here’s a little secret. The list of the top 5 bartenders in the LGBT community. Because everyone deserves a drink from this year’s best bartenders.

Even though we suggest getting to know all the bartenders in our community, we really suggest acquainting yourself, your friends, with these innovators of all things boozy, and yummy in Montrose. Great bartenders wear many different hats while they sling those cocktails. Because of this, it’s very difficult to pick these masters. But we tried our best.

Austin Abernathy at Hamburger Mary's

Austin Abernathy of Hamburger Mary’s probably won’t admit it, but he’s a huge puzzle piece who has helped Hamburger Mary’s grow their sales from behind the bar. With all the seasonal science experiments that Austin is constantly cooking up, there’s really no way to ever tell what kind of new flavor experiments he has up his sleeve. That’s why it’s probably best to give him a few clues and then sit back and enjoy whatever he whips up for you.

The Montrose Kroger Makes A Donation Of $5000 To Montrose Center To Help Feed LGBTQ+ Hungar!

(HOUSTON) — The Houston Division of Kroger has gifted the Montrose Center with $5,000 to assist the center and help alleviate food insecurity in the Houston, Montrose LGBT community.

According to the Montrose Center, the LGBT community experiences food insecurity at a higher rate than the general population with more than 1 in 4 LGBT adults (27%) – approximately 2.2 million people – experiencing a time in the last year when they did not have enough money for the food for themselves or their families, compared to 17% of non-LGBT adults.

“The Montrose Center cannot do this work alone, however, and the Houston Division of Kroger has stepped up in a big way,”

a statement released by the Montrose Center said.

“For more than 125 years, Kroger has emphasized a customer-first approach to providing quality products, value pricing, outstanding service and an exceptional shopping experience,” the statement continued.

Kroger is recognized as one of America’s most generous companies for its support of more than 100 Feeding America food bank partners, more than 145,000 community organizations, and now the Montrose Center in their most recent campaign, “Proud to Support Equality”. The Montrose Center said in their release.

“Pride Month serves as a time of remembrance for the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York and as a way to honor those who have fought and continue to fight for the rights of LGBT Americans,” Kroger said in a release.

(HOUSTON) The hottest thing on YouTube these days, Superstar Davey Wavey, made a special trip to Texas recently to meet a very special fan and surprise him with the most amazing gift.

Team Wavey and Drag Race gal-pal Alaska ThunderFuck teamed with Pure for Men to surprise ‘Angel’, a 6’4”, makeup-wearing, a nineteen-year-old gay boy from El Paso, Texas.

Angel, a superfan of both Wavey, and Thunderfuck; traveled to Houston to be surprised on stage in front of thousands at Houston’s Pride Festival.

“As you can imagine, his life hasn’t been easy. So we decided to surprise him with his own float in the Houston Pride Parade,” Wavey said via his Facebook page.

Working with Houston Pride and in conjunction with Pure for Men, Wavey and Thunderfuck were able to pull off the biggest surprises ‘Angel’ had ever been dealt, an opportunity to be himself in front of nearly 750,000 people as he rode in the parade aboard his own float.

“I often get emails from queer people in smaller cities and towns who don’t have a lot of community,” Wavey told HuffPost in an email. “They can feel alone, isolated and like they don’t fit in ― that’s especially true if you’re 6′4″, from Texas and walk around with a full face of makeup.”
