Teel:If you're looking for a queer-friendly space to get your haircut, consider checking this place out! My go-to guy is Jordan Chandler (@jordanchandlerhair), but I've also gotten my hair cut by Nick Sanchez(nickcutzhair). If you're specifically looking to get your haircut by a queer trans-non binary person, then check out Ru! (@queerfriendlybarber). He's usually booked out a month or so though! So get in early!

Cheer Up Charlies
Teel:Amazing queer/lesbian owned bar in Austin! They have a huge stage outdoors and ample amount of space. Also, all their cocktails are vegan (and actually delicious!) My go-to is the Rosie Cheek! This space used to be dubbed Austin's go-to "lesbian bar", but has now morphed more into an all-inclusive Queer space. Follow them and look out for amazing drag performances, DJs, and the annual Dyke March!
