Community/Austin Area Events


I am interning with The Wright House Wellness Center. We are a non profit organization that strive to help people living with or at-risk for chronic illnesses, such as Aids, HIV, Hep C., make healthier life-style choices, employ complementary/holistic health therapies to delay illness, and contribute back to the community.

We have an upcoming event on October 17th, 2014 that we will need a lot of volunteer help and the Gender and Sexuality Center seemed like a perfect place to find our volunteers.

We have different time slots we would like to have volunteers:

  • Move-in/Setup: 8:45am-12:00pm
  • Decorating/Auction Setup: 11:00am-5:00pm

Let me know if any of these times work for you, if any at all.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

November 20, 2014 is the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR).
TDOR is the day when we come together across the world to remember and honor those who have been murdered because they were perceived to be gender diverse.
In Austin TENT hosts the vigil held to commemorate TDOR.
In years past we have had between 150-200 people in attendance.
Planning this vigil requires the help of many hands and hearts.
We will be holding monthly meetings, however there are many tasks that can be done without attending a meeting, if you want to help but can’t attend a meeting please contact
This year’s TDOR chair is Stephanie Martinez.

The office is located in the reddish part of the building.
Parking is available in the front drive way, in the small parking lot in front of the building as well as on the North side of the building.
The TENT monthly program will follow in the same location.
