AGLCC Honored in the Austin Chronicle's "Best of Austin"

The AGLCC (of “Keep Austin Queer’d”) was honored along with the Austin Independence Business Alliance (of “Keep Austin Weird” fame) as the Best Shop-Local Portals in the Austin Chronicle’s 2013 “Best of Austin” Awards on September 17th.

It Gets Better

"It Gets Better" comes to Austin!

This Friday, September 20th, the touring show “It Gets Better” comes to the Long Center. A collaboration by L.A.’s Speak Theater Arts, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and the It Gets Better Project, this musical performance provides a performing arts response to the difficult issue of bullying, one of the most challenging issues among today’s young adults and adolescents. The performance at the Long Center will involve a number of Austin musicians, including members of the Capital City Men’s Chorus, Conspirare and Amphion, in a program designed to inspire and open minds.
