Hipper by far than you might expect, Houston is a welcoming place where it's virtually impossible to remain a stranger for long. The small-town feeling contrasts with this big city's soaring skyline, world-class arts, and cuisine that's as sophisticated and varied as you'll find anywhere. The Pride Houston Festival Day takes place the last week of June each year in the Montrose neighborhood, with lots of food, music and festivities. There's a night-time Pride Parade too. See our listings for more events. From there Metro rail trains connect 44 stations on three lines.

It's a Gay ol' time in Houston
By Andrew Collins. Although one of the largest cities in the country, and one with a huge population of gay men, Houston only has one gay bathhouse: Club Houston. Located close to downtown hotels and restaurants, and about a minute drive east of the city's Montrose gay nightlife district, this Houston staple has been serving the gay community of southern Texas for over 10 years.
Almost as regularly, he hears people declare that the historic Houston neighborhood is no longer gay. In the s, the historic neighborhood had a significant LGBT population, and for many years, the area was at the center for gay culture in Houston. Today, however, there's a sense among some Houstonians that this is no longer the case. For real estate folks, the narrative of Montrose being formerly gay — but not anymore — could help them add a bit of historical character and a trendy narrative to the area, while still sanitizing the present image of the neighborhood, which sometimes was at odds with gay bars in the area, Riedel said.
