Austin's Annual PRIDE celebration is one of the largest opportunities for local non-profit organizations, social groups, and causes to gain exposure in the LGBTQ community. Each year, dozens of these groups use the Festival as a platform to inform and interact with the thousands of attendees. Countless people find new organizations to join, causes to support, and opportunities to volunteer at PRIDE events. Furthermore, we are proud to know that the Austin PRIDE Festival is Central Texas' single largest HIV testing day of the year enabling several local HIV-related service organizations to reach populations they may otherwise not reach!
