WHAT: Your sponsorship helps us drive customers to LGBTQIA+ friendly businesses participating in Sweet Pride, during which LGBTQIA+ people and our Allies “Eat Dessert First!” at bakeries and restaurants in Greater Austin, Texas, to raise funds for QWELL, Austin’s LGBTQIA+ community foundation.

QWELL’s planned community centers, smartphone app, and other programs cultivate an LGBTQIA+ culture of health, connection, and liberation that will make Greater Austin the best place on Earth for LGBTQIA+ people to live, love, learn, work, and play. AustinOutpost.org/plans

WHY: Greater Austin has the nation’s third-largest LGBTQIA+ population per capita but no LGBTQIA+ community centers. Research shows that most local LGBTQIA+ residents do not feel like part of a community; they struggle to find friends and resources. QWELL will make it easier for LGBTQIA+ residents to live happily ever after, here, by connecting them with each other and resources they can use to improve their wellbeing.

WHEN: Sweet Pride takes place during Austin Pride Month in August.

Sponsorship Deadline: July 31.

HOW: The event will be promoted with digital ads and on QWELL’s Austin Outpost social media channels (5,650 Facebook, 3,300 Instagram) and to our email list (4,000).
