Austin may not have a specific LGBTQ+ center, but that doesn't mean our community isn't thriving. We've got a whole bunch of organizations working hard to make sure we're taken care of. Places like The Kind Clinic and Ashwell are the trusted doctors of the queer community, keeping us healthy and providing resources for our physical needs.
On the other hand, you have organizations like Future Front Texas who are like the matchmakers of the community, connecting queer entrepreneurs and small business owners. And then there are groups like Equality Texas and the Transgender Education Network of Texas who are like the lawyers of the community, fighting for our rights and making sure our voices are heard.
All these non-profits are like puzzle pieces that come together to create a strong foundation for the LGBTQ+ community in Austin. And here at The Rise Times, we're doing our part to add to that foundation and create an even more inclusive and supportive environment for all of us.
