YEAR OF THE WOMXN - Austin Pride 2018 Official Womxn's Party
Hosted by: Lesbutante & The Boss
A Message from Kelly West & Mitch Solorzano Daly:
This year we are producing something much larger and much more powerful – a WOMXN’S Party. The theme for Austin Pride this year is REVOLUTION. This celebration of WOMXN will show that we are here to stay. 2018 has been a prevailing year for womxn all over the world. From political seats being filled by a slew of LGBTQIA+, to WOMXN’S Marches, to the #MeToo movement, and ground-breaking change at the Royal Wedding. Huge racial & social barriers were broken that were centuries old, and we want to continue being that voice for WOMXN all over the world, specifically in the LGBTQIA+ community.
To produce the party that the LGBTQIA+ WOMXN and friends deserve, we had to think outside of the box. With the help and backing of Austin Pride, we have decided to secure and rent the parking lot on the corner of 4th St. and Congress Ave. (next to the Speak Easy and across from Capital Grille) for this event.
We will be fencing off the entire parking lot and putting a stage in the middle for entertainment. Our entertainment for the evening is a lineup of very influential WOMXN such International DJ Citizen Jane, DJ GiiQ, professional dancers, Angel SUPASTUD Hamilton as the Celebrity Host, and more. We are being extremely selective when it comes to talent because we want to showcase all types of influential WOMXN of different cultural backgrounds in the United States, specifically WOMXN of color.
This year has been historical for WOMXN all over the world and we want to celebrate that in a BIG WAY. EVERYONE is welcome to the party, but we are promoting it to the WOMXN, as we always do. WOMXN deserve a safe space to be themselves for one night, and that’s what we are in the business of providing. The party will have a capacity of 1000+ individuals, which would never be possible if we used any other gay venue in Austin, TX. The Official WOMXN’S Party on Friday night is just the beginning of the celebration for the weekend.
