Networkers got it easy this month with just a couple LGBTQ networking events to fit in to their tight holiday schedules. Probably because of the number of events during the holidays makes networking events relatively redundant, but more likely because nobody got time for one more event than absolutely necessary … seriously have you seen the calendar for December? It’s complete cray-cray. The Austin Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce skips their monthly luncheon this month and the happy hour has been replaced with the chambers annual holiday party in South Austin. The socially-oriented, real estate-pitching Gay In Austin wrap up the year with their winter happy hour downtown.

This month’s Gay in Austin happy hour will return to the heart of downtown Austin and the Firehouse Hostel & Lounge on Thursday, December 3, 2015 starting at 6:30 PM. This month, you’ll also have the opportunity during happy hour to purchase tickets for the Austin PrEP Access Project Winter Wonderland party at Oilcan Harry’s on Saturday, December 12, 2015.
The event is hosted by REATX: Varela-Kosarek Team and sponsored by He’s For Me – Austin, Family Tree Dental Group and Valet Motorcars. This event tends to be more of a social function rather than networking, but it does draw a large, primarily younger, professional crowd, including recent transplants. You’ll also find higher proportion of attendees from the creative and tech industries. The happy hours are free to attend. You can register online if you wish, but it isn’t required to attend.RSVP on Facebook RSVP on website
