Gay Houston Houston City Guide City Guides > United States > Gay Houston Houston Casey SiemaskoAh, Houston. The awe-inspiring capital of space exploration and NASA. The most ethnically and racially diverse city in the U.S. An exhilarating conglomeration of world-class restaurants, theatres and museums. This thrumming city in the heart of Texas is many things—predictable is never one of them. And while Houston continues to grow in population and popularity, Houstonians retain a tangible pride in their old-school Texan roots. The result is a fascinating, all-inclusive city that celebrates Texas cliches without ever feeling bound by them. Houston’s diverse population also means you can expect an exciting culinary scene that fuses global flavours with local ingredients. Don’t worry about over-indulging; boot-scootin’ gay clubs will have you dancing all those calories away. The epicentre of Houston gay nightlife and culture is Montrose, an all-embracing neighbourhood where vintage shops and gay bars lie alongside cantinas and cottages. Discover the best of the gaybourhood (and all of Space City) with this ultimate Houston gay scene guide. Feel like getting away? Take a trip planned just for you, and let us do all the work.
