So, of course, we’re throwing a party to celebrate!

ABOUT THE MURAL
“Silk Road” is a celebration of Austin’s diverse and inclusive community. It is a commentary on how gender fluidity has opened the city of Austin to exciting forms of fashion and entertainment. The imagery is taken from iconic artists that have historically supported diversity and inclusion, such as Patrick Nagel who was one of the first artists to celebrate gender fluidity and acceptance of non-binary individuals.
The colors are symbolic of Austin’s citizens of all races, nationalities, and orientations. With hard work and creative visualization “Silk Road” came about to celebrate who we are as a queer community and how far Austin has come!
