Peach! Your favorite event series that celebrates ALL LGBTQ+ women & femme family has returned for 2018. We are back and more queer than ever!
Peach Presents the 2018 4-event series…’The Elements’ (Air, Water, Earth, & Fire)
Join us as we explore the resilient spirit, beauty, and power of our queer community through our interpretation of the elements. We got swept away by AIR, drenched by Water, and now its time to come down to EARTH.
Earth, a time where we re-center and focus on our growing, thriving community. Join us for a day of programming centering wellness and self care on the beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright's Emil Bach House estate, which includes a Japanese tea house and gardens. There will be yoga, workshops, spoken word, vendors, food, curated cocktails, music, and so much more.

By keeping a pulse on the culture, Black Thread is dedicated to styling spaces and collectives to help create community and togetherness.
Tito's Handmade Vodka:
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ oldest legal distillery. Love has always been at the heart of this company. Back in 1992, years before he sold his first case, Tito started making vodka to give as gifts. Its popularity quickly spread among his friends and family, and he soon became known as "the vodka guy." When Tito decided to really make a go of it in the spirits business, he started supporting charity events around Austin one bottle at a time, and gave away, by all reasonable standards, a ridiculous amount of vodka.
