What is the Pride Shindig?
The Pride Shindig is a boutique wedding expo that was established in 2019 in Austin, Texas, aiming to fill an underserved gap inside the local wedding industry. Sure, there are plenty of expos in the world but so many cater to the normative i.e. cis-hetero humans. We support all avenues for humans to plan their big day but we're definitely
pro-representation. Especially in the South, bigotry is alive and well, even in the wedding industry. The singular goal of The Pride Shindig is to provide a safe space where engaged folx can come and chat with vendors that are enthusiastic about inclusivity. All vendors are carefully vetted through a relatively strict evaluation, upholding the inclusivity beliefs of the hosts, as well as consistent professionalism.
Note: The Pride Shindig is not only for the LGBTQIA+ community. It's a safe space for all humans, regardless of race, size, disability, orientation, and relationship style. Allies are extremely welcome. Basically, if you give a damn about other people, you're our people.
