Despite its Bible Belt location, Gay Dallas has one of the most vibrant queer communities you are ever likely to encounter. Diverse, genuinely warm, creative and just a little wild – the ‘Big D’ will not disappoint…
The LGBTQ community thrives in the Dallas Region, with a widespread sentiment of welcome throughout the cities and business communities. Both the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth scored a perfect 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Municipal Equality Index in 2020, which measures cities inclusion of LGBTQ residents.
Dallas has one of the largest Gay populations in the US. Gay Dallas is primarily centered around the Oak Lawn area with bars, restaurants, and stores found throughout Cedar Springs Rd and Oak Lawn Avenue. The intersection of Throckmorton and Cedar Springs has been called the “crossroads” of Oak Lawn and is the home to LGBT Bars, coffee shops, book stores, video stores, services, and restaurants within walking distance.
For decades, Dallas has long been home to one of Texas’ best LGBT bar scenes. Whether you’re looking for a laid-back jazz bar with craft cocktails or a clubby spot with music perfect for dancing, Dallas-Fort Worth’s gay bar scene has a spot that will suit your needs.
