PHOTOS: SXSW Mans Up At Queerty’s Swanky Hoedown


Following Queerty’s South By Southwest conversation on “How Social Media Is Creating Marriage Equality,” our editors met and mingled with the festival’s well-groomed hipsters, both local and visiting.

Chicago rapper Big Dipper and Queerty’s friends from AFER, YouTube, Manhunt, True Colors Fund, StartOut, Bully Pulpit and the Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival saddled up at The Madison, a predominantly straight (gasp!) candle-lit lounge around the block from the gayborhood, for a night of free cocktails, hipster music and fun photobooth frolicking. The testosterone levels then got to an all-time high after an impromptu arm-wrestling competition. Did you pose for the Queerty photobooth? Download and share your pics here.
