Diane "Kitty" Murray

She's only one woman, but she affects more positive change than many organizations could ever hope to achieve. A networking dynamo, Diane "Kitty" Murray draws upon the same hyperactive multitasking mania she did back in her days in the film business to provide venues and events for Austin women (and especially women who love women). She is the woman behind the women of such Austin staples as Foodies, a casual social group based around Kitty's mailing list of 1,700 women, and Ultra-Ultra (theatre, comedy, mailbox dating events, etc.). Plus, Kitty accomplishes all the above, sometimes at great personal expense, while holding down a bona fide teaching job. Could it be that hanging out with Austin's sassiest, sexiest women is reward enough? It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it.
