Austin grew up in the Midwest and graduated from schools in Indiana and Ohio. Austin believes wholeheartedly in the need to connect gay, lesbian, bi, and questioning youth with supportive resources in real life. Those supportive resources might be organizations, events, books, websites, schools, workplaces, communities, or people.
Austin has struggled with coming out, with finding a place to feel at home, with sexuality and relationships, and with a Catholic upbringing. He generally is restless until his goals, either personally or professionally, are accomplished. As the 2013 editor for Born Like This, there’s a lot of meaning for Austin in helping his peers come into their own and find their place in this world.
