Dear 2022 Unite the Fight Attendees,

In an effort to reduce lines at registration AND bars we have an offer for you!
This Thursday (9/22) and Friday (9/23), we will have PRE-REGISTRATION sites at the following locations where you can register, pick up your gala wristband, and purchase a Fairmont drink wristband (3-drink and 5-drink wristbands are available).

Each location will be staffed from 10am-6pm both days. 

OutYouth North Location (they have a parking lot)
3007 N Lamar Blvd
Ste 101
Austin, TX 78705

Ryan Rastelli - TEA Board Member (street parking available)
2211 E. 5th Street 
Austin, TX 78702

Fairmont Austin (Free Self-Parking for 30 mins)
101 Red River St 
2nd Floor Landing 
Austin, TX 78701


  1. Because no one has time for long lines.

  2. Because for anyone who pre-registers, you’ll receive a FREE Unite the Fight 2022 clacking fan (you choose your contestant!) or a Unite the Fight t-shirt.

  3. Because you can zoom past registration lines and go RIGHT TO THE BAR on Saturday.


  1. ALL attendees must pre-register individually. (Table purchasers will not be able to pick up 10 wristbands - only their individual wristband. Components of our event require individual registration.)

  2. ALL attendees may only purchase one Fairmont drink wristband each so we can verify ID. 3-drink wristbands cost $50, and 5-drink wristbands cost $80. (These are Fairmont’s prices - TEA does not benefit from alcohol sales - but we are pre-selling to mitigate lines.)

Drop us a line at if you have any issues or questions! 


The Equality Alliance (TEA) cannot WAIT to see you at the 2022 Unite the Fight gala this Saturday, September 24th. You may be asking yourself, what’s the TEA? 

When Do I Arrive?
All guests are recommended to arrive at 5pm. GA guests can register on floor 4, then move to floor 5 where all GA bars will be open. We will have 9 bars in the ballroom, and 6 bars outside the ballroom as well as stations to purchase drink wristbands. Arriving early will ensure you have a drink in hand sooner and get this party started!!

What Do I Wear?
We always say that people at our gala dress “VMAs meets Met Gala.” But don’t let that limit you either. Our guests aren’t afraid of color, sparkle, makeup, and the gayest accoutrement possible. Be fabulous and feel fabulous. Be you. 

How Do I Skip the Lines?
