About Erica

Erica Nix has been a bright and raucous force in the Austin community for well over a decade. Her performance art, beloved photography, and work as a queer and trans-inclusive, body positive activist and personal trainer is well-documented: from the multitude of activist rallies and demonstrations she’s supported, to being a regularly featured artist at OUTsider Fest, to winning an Austin Critics Table Award in 2016 for best independent project, and Austin Chronicle’s Best Personal Trainer Award in 2017 and 2018.

As an artist living in Austin since 1999, she has watched her unique small-town city grow into a BIG Business City.  At first Erica felt optimistic the city’s growth would bring more business and prosperity to Austin residents.  Instead Austin is pushing artists and marginalized communities out, but Erica Nix won’t let that happen without a fight.  Help Erica Nix fight to Keep Austin Weird and Pick Nix for Mayor of Austin in 2022.
