Cute Nail Studio, an Austin, Texas-based art nail and esthetics studio just announced that they have partnered with Out Youth, a local nonprofit providing health and wellness services to LGBTQIA+ persons aged 18-23, to provide weekly free salon services to Out Youth clients enrolled in the Trans Wellness Program.
“One of our main goals in opening Cute was to create a safe space for genderqueer people to come and feel beautiful,” said Jason Darling, co-owner of the salon. “I personally know how scary it can be to ask for beauty services that don’t conform to social norms- I’ve been doing it my entire adult life! Because of my experiences, I wanted to make a place that helped people fearlessly pursue their personal definition of beauty.”
