Dallas' LGBTQ+ population is one of the biggest in the country and certainly the biggest in Texas. It's also home to Oak Lawn, which was voted the best gaybourhood in the USA by Out Traveller. This is the most popular space for the community to hang out, with beautiful homes and exciting nightlife, and it hosts the city's most popular Pride and LGBTQ+ focussed events throughout the year. Outside of Oak Lawn, there are other areas worth a visit, such as the gay owned businesses of Bishop Arts District and Cathedral of Hope, the world's largest inclusive place of worship.

Everything you need for the perfect night out is located in this queer hub, but if you want to venture out and explore the rest of the city, you'll find queer friendly venues there as well.
