Today is the beginning of LGBT History Month! Every year in October, LGBT History Month highlights 31 different LGBT icons, one for every day of the month. Every icon has a video and bio detailing their importance to the fight for LGBT rights, along with downloadable flyers, images, and other resources. A project of Equality Forum, LGBT History Month provides role models, builds community, and makes sure the LGBT community’s national and international contributions are heard.
So we’re playing with a new local contributor paradigm here at QN and we’ve rolled out the first five community correspondents. Some are experienced Q officers, one is returning to the team, and one is a relative newcomer.
It’s nearly time again for Boulder Pridefest 2014! Save the date for September 8-14, and enjoy all of the entertainment, vendors, beer & wine Pride Week has to offer! All week long there will be tons of activities, like a movie night, Trans Ally bike ride, spoken word, Yoga in the Park and so much more!
As a Colorado native I could not be happier to report on such an occasion! This year has been amazing in terms of LGBT rights and it seems like soon enough (or hopefully) all the states will allow same sex marriage.
