Event description


It's that time of year again! June 5th through June 10th, the #ABPTeam, partnered with several other local organizations, is back for our 3rd annual Austin Black Pride celebration weekend!!!

Austin Black Pride was recreated in 2016 with Queer People of Color in mind. The founders of ABP noticed that Austin was lacking experiences that catered to the unique needs of its Black LGBTQ+ community. ABP was not created to further divide, bash, or belittle non-Black LGBTQ communities; but to instead preserve our culture and history, while also celebrating the evolution of Black LGBTQ people.

Austin Black Pride is a weekend of events that were created to highlight Austin's Black LGBTQ community interests, talents, and culture, by any means necessary!
