A resource guide for kink and fetish in the LGBTQ+ community in Austin, Texas and the surrounding communities.
There was a time when public parties with a kink or fetish theme were relatively rare and got very little promotion outside of those that were part of that group. Now, dedicated groups are organized and host events at most of the gay bars around Austin. For someone new to the city or a local with a budding interest in kink and fetishes, it may be hard to know where to even start. So we’re compiled this LGBTQ+ Guide for the kink and fetish scene in Austin.
This is a work in progress, so it isn’t a complete and comprehensive guide for all things kink and fetish just yet by any means, but it’s a start, so if you have anything you’d like to contribute to the guide (tips, resources, promoters, events), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll include it in the next round of edits.

On the first Saturday of every month, Austin Gears hosts Gear Night, the first and oldest regular Gear Night in the U.S., at The Iron Bear. You can wear whatever gear you like — even if there’s a theme. Participating in street clothes is fine too. Gear Night is a safe zone where people can express themselves with no fear of persecution. No one has a perfect body or perfect gear, so negative comments about someone’s physique or gear is highly discouraged.
