Hi! I’m Kate Austin.
If I could describe myself in one sentence: I’m a 25 year old vegan lesbian who loves all things fashion, travel, home decor and beauty and never says no to a glass of (red) wine and/or a hoppy beer.
In 2008, I started a blog on Tumblr to upload my pictures that were too inappropriate for Facebook. I continued uploading photos there to have a permanent place online to keep memories and photos I took over the years. Then in 2014, I came out to the world and shared that I had a girlfriend! I started using my Tumblr to document our relationship, the struggles of coming out to a religious family, getting kicked out, and all of the things in between.
Sharing my story gave so many other LGBTQ+ teens a safe place. Being able to help other people going through something similar to what I went through is why I use social media. We all feel so alone but we are all SO much more alike than we even realize.
I wanted to create this blog as a place where I can not only share my relationship and coming out advice but also my vegan food favorites, my beauty tricks, my (baller on a budget) fashion advice and so much more. I love traveling, cooking, make up, decorating my apartment and sharing it all with the world.
My dream is for this to be a place where anyone can come and feel at home. Grab a cup of tea or a glass of wine and come in, look around and let your walls down. I hope I am able to inspire you to live your life as authentically as you possibly can and do anything that makes YOU happy.
Be kind to one another <3
I love this!! ♥️ Thank you 🙂
Thank you so much for reading! <3

that makes my heart so happy!!
Love this! You have no idea who I am but you’ve been an inspiration to me for years. Keep doing you!! Can’t wait for more posts.
Hi!! Thank you so much for stopping by and reading. It is an absolute honor to inspire you.
Thank you so so much for sharing your story. Since I read it, I can’t stop crying. I’m just going through this emotional chaos that you’ve been through. Unfortunately I have not your courage to come out, yet. Still my biggest secret. But your story gives me hope to manage it one day and to be finally happy.
Thank you Kate!
Angi, all things take time. I remember feeling so lost and confused, like my entire world was flipped and nothing made sense. Give it time and it starts to figure itself out. Always put your happiness first, everything else comes after. <3
As a closeted gay, I read this with a smile on my face.
My whole family, are strong Christians making coming out so much harder. But to read your story and think, even though they might not support your sexuality fully, they will always be there for you because they will always love you. For me at 24 yrs old from NJ, my whole family always talking about “my future wife” and ” when I’m married my wife blah blah blah…” holds a HUGE weight over my head, making me feel as if, I should just stay closeted forever and moving away would just be easier. I smiled so hard reading your post, it made me so happy how you met Sarah (she literally perfect in every way), how you found yourself and expressed it, lastly how you have a loving warming heart always helping others reach their maximum potential. You’re an inspiration to us all and most importantly… ME!!!
I follow you on snapchat, instagram, and tumblr, you & Sarah honestly, have the cutest relationship I’ve ever seen… Seriously… your photos on Instagram are so billboard/magazine worthy. Thanks Katee! Love, Kylee
