October has become Pride month in Fort Worth as a number of events have moved to coincide with the parade and popular picnic staged by the nonprofit Tarrant County Gay Pride Week Association.

Q Cinema, which has been held in June in the past, moved to October. International Gay Rodeo Association will be in town later this month.

AARP scheduled a seminar at Celebration Church on how the new healthcare law affects LGBT families. And the city is holding a diversity training panel in conjunction with Pride month.

The 32nd annual Tarrant County Pride Parade is expected to be the largest with more entries than last year’s record-setting number. The route will move one block west but remains in Downtown Fort Worth for the third year. The change is due to construction on Main Street.

In 2013, the Tarrant County Gay Pride Week Association (yep, that’s TCGPWA) celebrates its 32nd anniversary. Considering its long history, TCGPWA has a lot to celebrate. For anyone who’s curious, no, Tarrant County Pride is not the red-headed step child of Dallas gay pride. As a matter of fact, this year, Fort Worth’s LGBT celebration will officially span a total of ten days (Oct. 3-13).

The city of ‘Cowboys and Culture’ is a lot more accepting than a North Texas outsider might think. Just check out the Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Pride WORTHy page, catered specifically to LGBT visitors.

Pride [extra-long] week kicks off October 3, with a party at Club Reflection in Fort Worth.

Dallas and Fort Worth – Everything’s Big in Texas

Dallas - Fort Worth - Google Maps

from Google Maps

Tea in hand, I sit back and watch morning creep over a landscape soft with mist and the dappled greens of scrub oak and mesquite. Here there is inviolate air and unrushed hours. Somewhere, maybe a mile away, a horse brays.

Sure, the food is top-notch, the horse rides through the chaparral charming, and the beds luxuriant as any, but it is that airily vast dawn at the Wildcatter Ranch that is perfection – the foundation upon which all others should be built.

Oh, and the smokin’ hot ranch hand, his dog Macho in tow, helps, too.

About 90 miles west of Fort Worth, TX, the Wildcatter is the rustic halfway point in my swing through northern Texas. I’ll be the first to admit it: to me the Lone Star State is more synonymous with some things – the Tea Party, Chick-Fil-A aficionados, a Bible Belt full of good Christians who hate gays to love Jesus – than it is with others.
