I generally stick with the gay clubs, or the ones that I know are T Friendly and/or have a good clientele mix. It’s pretty easy to do in Amarillo since are never more than a handful with the openings and closings seeming to balance it out, numbers wise.
If I go to Dallas or Oklahoma City, I already know a few that are safe, and if I have heard of someplace else that is an LGBTQ supporter then I will call ahead and ask them. Here in Texas, if they don’t wish for us to be in their establishment, they will tell you if you just ask. I used to make it my mission of going to a country bar on purpose way back last century if I heard of them hassling or assaulting one of us, and the result s were predictable. That was back in my stubborn, in-your-face-if-you-don’t-like-it days. I am glad I have calmed down, and I am sure Amarillo PD took a breather back then too. There’s 4 or 5 interesting stories of those events.
