Make it Better so it Gets Better!


 The recent attention to suicide committed by gay youth across the nation has many of us thinking about the real effect of living in a society that still does not respect the its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community members. This is unfortunately not a new problem but rather an ongoing challenge for LGBT youth in our country. 

'Boulder Pride' is now 'Out Boulder' !


Boulder Pride - Boulder County's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Community Center - has a new name and look: Out Boulder. The new name was selected through community input provided in surveys and focus groups led by Vermilion, a graphic design and communications firm in Boulder. The new name and tag line is: "Out Boulder: Connecting Boulder County's LGBT Community since 1994." Why the change?
