The City's LGBTQ Quality of Life Advisory Commission will meet at 7pm at Austin City Hall.

The agenda will be posted on their website (http://austintexas.gov/lgbtq), and the Commission is expected to discuss budget recommendations — in other words, what they should ask the City to fund to improve LGBTQIA+ quality of life. Due to budget constraints, the Commission may choose to only make 1 or 2 strategic budgetary recommendations.

If you think the City should help fund our upcoming «Austin Outpost» LGBTQIA+ Community Centers pilot, you can email each Commissioner separately to respectfully ask them to support the idea. Their emails are listed under «Member Roster» at https://austintexas.granicus.com/boards/w/677932b6fc6a934b.

You can read more about the «Austin Outpost» plan at https://qwellaustin.org/outpost.

We are also hoping the Commissioners will choose to ask the City to fund a new position at Austin Public Health to increase the number of LGBTQIA-competent physical and mental healthcare practitioners in Austin as well as a tele-therapy project so everyone in our community gets access to LGBTQIA-affirming counseling.

You also have an opportunity to address the Commissioners briefly during the «public comments» at the beginning of the meeting. You should show up a little early if you want to sign up to speak.

The public can observe the entire meeting (as long as they do not interrupt the proceedings).

Parking is available beneath City Hall and your parking can be validated by the staff person at the meeting. The building is accessible to wheelchairs. ASL interpreters are not provided for the meetings, although if you reach out to request one with enough notice, they may be able to arrange for an interpreter.
