SXSW and the #BigGay Kickoff Party

#BigGay Kickoff Party Do you miss the traffic congestion and funny accents from SXSW? This year’s event was gayer than ever, beginning with our #BigGay Kick-off Party and ending in the closing ceremonies of GayBiGayGay with a little Maddow in the middle for good measure.

AGLCC and therepubliq’s first #BigGay Kick-off Party was a rousing success with over 1,500 people in attendance throughout the evening and introduced Austin's LGBT business community to an even wider audience! Thanks to our sponsors, Oilcan Harry's, Frot Vodka, PostNet Far West (printing), Cherico Creative (designer of our event logo, posters, badges, and Big Gay Bags), ConnectATX (event photography), and Fun Loving Photos (amazing photo booth). Check out the pictures from the event here.
gAyTX Fun Guide For the 2nd consecutive year, the AGLCC worked with the Austin Chronicle's The Gay Place to produce the gAyTX Fun Guide, a comprehensive guide to all things LGBT at SXSW. We distributed thousands of copies as well as published a mobile guide. Kudos to the team at The Gay Place for their tireless efforts tracking down all of the SXSW events during Interactive, Film, and Music.

The Agenda March issue is OUT

The Agenda - March 2013 The #BigGay Kick-off Party also served as the launch party of the third issue of the AGLCC’s popular The Agenda magazine. This issue truly took the cause of LGBT economic equality to the next level, with expanded content, improved look and feel, and the debut of our "economic centerfold" featuring DandyLand!

Check out our map of distribution locations to pick up yours. Or come to one of our many chamber events where there are always plenty of copies available!

Kudos to our many, many volunteers who give of their professional services to make this magazine a reality from our collaborators at the Austin Chronicle to design and production volunteers Cherico Creative, Fun Loving Photos, Mouthfeel ATX, and RECSPEC.
