This is a city that features diversity of all sort.
And that’s what makes Fort Worth such a great city for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning people — whether you were born around here, came here by choice or were forced to come because of a job or other reason.
Fort Worth’s gay community rarely speaks with one voice, leaving room for everyone in the discussion.
The city isn’t very politically active in general, and the GLBT community in Tarrant County reflects the general lack of interest in politics and organizing. Worth affords gay and lesbian people the opportunity to shine as individuals.
Still, the Internet doesn’t offer enough information to help connect local gay people who want to find each other.
Gay websites focused on dating and hookups may serve a purpose, but there’s much more to gay Fort Worth than you’ll experience on a gay dating website.
In this city, if you see gay cowboys wandering between clubs, you can’t be sure whether they’re just into country attire or if they really are cowboys.Fort Worth is where the West begins, so real cowboys can feel just as comfortable here as Fort Worth’s own classical piano virtuoso Van Cliburn.There’s even a branch of TGRA — the Texas Gay Rodeo Association.Locals in the know call it by it’s real name, the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens.Visitors rarely get beyond our vibrant downtown scene and the historic Fort Worth Stockyards.But interesting, authentic Hispanic culture abounds in the neighborhood around the Stockyards, and the vibrant new West 7 Street development is already delivering on its promise to steal some of downtown’s thunder.
