Adam Shows Us Gay Dallas in a Different Light[/caption] My hometown city is a place I saw surprisingly little of despite living there for 18 years. My wasted youth was spent mostly beside a swimming pool, in an heavily air-conditioned mall or in the local ice cream shop. Can you blame a guy? A brownie fudge sundae for a couple of dollars is hard to resist! The suburban life can be so hard… So, on my most recent trip home (I now live in Berlin, where I write my travel blog Travels of Adam), I decided to finally dive into the deep end of Dallas. Growing up, I never heard much about the gay scene there (but then again, I wasn’t really looking for it either). But, over the years, Dallas has had an increasingly visible presence for its LGBTI locals. Dallas Pride has been running consistently for nearly 30 years, and the gayborhood of Oak Lawn is consistently ranked among the most gay-friendly places in the USA (despite some recent anti-gay attacks in 2015 and 2016).
