How can we create a healthy relationship with our bodies and our minds? How has technology & media impacted ties between fitness and body image; and how can gyms build safer spaces for the queer community?
Join us for a panel discussion with LGBTQ+ thought leaders and allies from Austin’s health & fitness industries! We’ll even kick things off with a 30-minute workout led by Austin’s first queer-friendly fitness studio Transform.
Pre-panel workout session at 6:00 PM. Panel starts at 6:45 PM. Networkings starts at 8pm. Event ends at 9:00 PM.
RSVPs are required but free. There is a $5 suggested donation that will go toward funding future OIT Austin events.
