There’s usually no shortage of events that are going down on any given day in Austin. And Austin makes no exception when it comes to gay events. Now, many of us already know about the usual Tuesgays down at Barbarella and Shitty Kitty Bingo at RAIN, but are there any other fun recurring gay activities going on in Austin each week?
We’re glad you asked. Yes, yes there are. There are plenty, actually. Here’s a short list, just to name a few.
Austin Tennis Club
This is a very active club that involves mostly gay men, although women are encouraged to attend. Many of these fellows actually play tennis so they’re, like, kinda good. You should attend only if you have an actual interest in tennis, not just the tennis player.
Fridays, 7-9 PM
Unity Church of the Hills
The metaphysical church of North Austin holds many rainbow events for its LGBTQ parish. 30 minutes before each service, the gay and lesbian youth and young adults join together and discuss the challenges and rewards of their gay spiritual journey.
Every Sunday, Sermons at 9:30 AM, 11:30 AM
This one’s for all you hipsters out there. Each Sunday, everyone’s favorite gay place down on the east side, Cheer Up Charlie’s, holds a vintage vinyl dance party. Get your brightly colored lipstick and high-waisted pants ready.
Every Sunday, 10 PM-2 AM
Thank Goodness I’m Bi
If you swing both ways, play for both teams or are just an experimenting pervert, you won’t want to miss this chance to make new friends and talk about how polarized everyone else is. Happening twice a month at Opal Divine’s on west Sixth.
First and third Fridays of each month, 7 PM
Even though yoga’s all-inclusive, for everyone of all ages, races and genders, the people at Soma Vida wanted to make sure there was a place, just for you gays, to practice downward-facing dog.
Every Thursday 7-8:15 PM
Out Youth is an organization dedicated to helping queer youth find the support they need as they navigate such things as homophobia, social phobias and inner strife as they move towards becoming the LGBTQ people they know themselves to be. Each Thursday, Out Youth has drop-in times for people who want to stop by, make some friends and participate in a support group.
Every Thursday, 4:30-8:30PM
