What we're about

Hello and welcome to Black Singles in Austin Meetup. Our mission is to provide a place for social activity focused on African-American singles and the folks who love them. (If you ain't married, you single!) We are LGBTQ friendly.

I am new to Austin from Los Angeles, so I am getting to know the area. Any ideas for activities/places to meet, please message me. I will do my best trying to come up with fun meetups.

For the safety of our members and in efforts to facilitate effective networking, we do require a profile pic of your actual face for membership approval.

Looking forward to your participation in the group.

Regards,

Danielle
