PHOTOS: Big Freedia, Honey Soundsystem Do Austin’s Queer Music Fest


For three days and three nights, the legendary Pine Street Station in East Austin became a vibrant festival. The first annual Stargayzer Fest featured over 100 LGBT artists, making it one of the largest gatherings of queer movers and (booty) shakers in the country.

The lineup was the ultimate list of who’s who: JD Samson, Cazwell, SSION, Mykki Blanco, Austra, Christeene, Big Dipper, Crystal Ark, Logan Lynn, Xiu Xiu, Baathhaus, Trust, Hi-Fashion, MikeQ, Big Freedia, Honey Soundsystem, Cakes Da Killa, Peaches Christ, Double Duchess, Yo! Majesty, and Ambrosia Salad.

All the photos from the weekend are at the GayCities Galleries.
