10 Fun Things For The Gays To Know For The Houston BBQ Cook-Off This Weekend!

HOUSTONMARCH 2 —As every Houstonian that owns a television or any kind of social media knows, rodeo season is upon us. The trail rides are rolling into Houston’s Memorial Park and a temporary tent city has been built in the parking lot of NRG stadium. Welcome to Houston, home of the world’s largest barbecue cook-off hosted by The Houston livestock show and rodeo.

But if you’ve never been to World Champion Barbecue Cook-off there are a couple of things you need to be aware of. Since that ‘gay cowboy’ movie certain phrases shouldn’t be said. “I’m gonna pump you full of lead,” is an absolute no. “You stay here while I sneak around from behind,” is also one to stay clear of. But most of all “saddle sore,” shouldn’t be spoken.

We’ve compiled a list of ten things you were going to see this weekend. Lets mount up and get our boots on!

LGBT Protesters To Hold Dance Party Outside Texas Governor’s Mansion

Forget Oilcan Harry’s, Richs, South Beach or any other bar or club. The hottest LGBT dance party probably won’t be in one of those spaces. Instead it will be outside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s mansion window.

HOUSTONFEB 21 —Hundreds of people have expressed interest and have signed up to protest outside the Texas governor’s mansion on Thursday in Austin against bills that threaten the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

As of Tuesday afternoon nearly 800 supporters have RSVP’d on Facebook to attend the dance party from 6pm to 9pm on the east side of the Governor’s Mansion at 1010 Colorado St.

Thursday’s event called Queer Dance Freakout at the Governor’s Mansion.

“It’s such a shame it’s been misused for so many years so turning it into a gay bar for a night seems like a proper use of this gorgeous architecture.”

Event organizers say the goal is to show opposition to what is considered anti-LGBT legislation, particularly so-called transgender bathroom bills — Senate Bill 6 and House Bill 1362. The bills would prohibit public schools from letting transgender children use multistall bathrooms that conform with their gender identity. State government buildings also would be barred from creating transgender-friendly bathrooms, and cities and counties would be prohibited from requiring bathrooms that accommodate transgender individuals.

“We say NO to marriage equality limitations. We say NO to old men saying what we can and cannot do,” according to the Facebook event description. “We say NO to anti-transgender bathroom bills. We say YES to shaking our asses. We say YES to the freedoms of the body.”
