Several weeks back the homie Mario Villanueva invited me to attend a Instameet in Austin. The Instameet was in celebration of World Wide Instameet 15 and since I hadn't been able to make the other meets I had to check it out. WWIM are pretty rad because people from all around the world get together to hang, shoot, and make lasting friendships through Instagram.
The Instameet was organized by Hello Mr. a magazine for men who date men. Hello Mr. is a space in which community can flourish and conversations can be shared. Published twice a year the magazine is beautifully curated and a great read.
Before the meet. I had heard good things about the magazine from several of my gay peeps and had taken a glance at one of their issues. I was intrigued by the topics covered and the design of it all. From cover to cover the magazine feels and looks great.
The Instameet kicked off at Hey Cup Cake on SoCo, and led us through the local shops. Concluding at the Austin Motel for laid back hangs and drinks. The walk was fun and I made several new friends and met some folks I had followed on Insta for a while. What I really enjoyed about the meet was how leisurely the meet was. I took a few shots but it was more about just kick’n back and enjoying the nice weather with some cool peeps. Something I can appreciate at the end of a long work week.
I hope y'all enjoy the photos and like always thanks for stopping by!
