The Gay Place

Ausitn Pride Festival 2013

What an amazing year! The entire week has lead up to this big weekend. Here's the main event! Our daylong social scene spent prancing from community booth to community booth from buddy to ex-lover to future ex-husband with plenty of fun for folks of all orientations, ages, creeds, cultures, and proclivities, culminating in the star-studded show (starring Andy Bell of Erasure, Crystal Waters, Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go's, Jojo of the Mary Jane Girls, Hi Fashion, RuPaul's Drag Race stars Raja, Shannel and Shangela, Steve Grand, Wendy Ho, Double Duchess, JD Samson of Le Tigre/MEN, Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem, and a host of local lovelies). Austin, are you ready to love thy neighbor? As thyself? Deeply? Truly? Passionately? And show how big and bursting this deep in the heart of this fucked up state is? Let's show 'em. Oh, hell yes we're proud. Sat., Sept. 7, 11am (2013). $20, $17 in advance.
