For the past year, Out Boulder has been collaborating with VOICE (Voices of Immigrant Children for Education and Equality). VOICE and Out Boulder believe our movements not only intersect (as in there are undocumented LGBTQ people) but that our movements have a lot in common.
A few months ago, our five year old niece was trying to make sense of the
jobs the adults in her life do for a living.
For example, her uncle edits a trade journal. As my partner explained what he

Our niece’s father helps companies maximize their online marketing
opportunities. She translated his work as, “My daddy makes money” (I think she
pictured him literally printing out the dollar bills right at work :) ).

The new name and tag line is: "Out Boulder: Connecting Boulder County's LGBT Community since 1994." Why the change?
