About Q Austin

The Q is dedicated to building a safe, affirming, and healthy community that empowers young LGBTQ communities in Austin.
The Q envisions a network of collaborators and partners promoting solidarity, well-being, and the awesomeness of Austin’s queer communities.
An Mpowerment Project of AIDS Services of Austin that can make a difference in the lives of young gay, bisexual, and questioning men ages 18 – 29 by mobilizing these men to shape a healthy community for themselves, build positive social connections, and support their friends to have safer sex. The Mpowerment Project can reach large numbers of young gay/bisexual men in a cost effective manner because it is a community level intervention.
Within The Q Austin space, community partners help create a safe space for Austin’s LGBTQIA communities of ALL AGES by organizing events and outreach to support the Q’s vision. Through this support the message of safer sex practices and well-being can reach a larger audience while raising awareness for the Q and its mission.
