Austin Pride Week features a whole week of fabulous events every September organized by the Austin Gay and Lesbian Pride Foundation. The festivities kick off with a Big Gay Brunch and continue with art exhibits, drag shows, live performances, dances and a Pride Parade. The event closes out with a Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Brunch, which also features live performances.
The Austin Gay and Lesbian Pride Foundation (AGLPF) formed the Austin PRIDE Caresprogram in 2011 to further its mission to educate, resource, and connect the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community in Austin, Texas. A component of the program includes the board evaluating its financials annually, and, if practicable, donating surplus Austin PRIDE celebration proceeds back into the community.
Since its inception, the Austin PRIDE Cares program has donated over $100,000 to various non-profit organizations and causes!
