Goodbye from Jen


My last day will be this Thursday, July 9 after four years of incredible, heart-warming, fulfilling work at Out Boulder. The community -- YOU -- is what has made my work what it has been. Out Boulder has been my home and you have been my family. From Speaking Out to Health & Wellness programming, from Pridefest to Trans Awareness Week, I have been honored to be part of such great offerings to our community.

A Major Step in the Right Direction


The picture above was a rally in front of the Courthouse in Friday night! Thank you to so many of you who “came out”.  The United States Supreme Court finally caught up with the reality of our lives and acknowledged that our relationships are steeped in love, centered in commitment and anchored in authentic partnerships.  We've always been in committed loving relationships but never had the rights and responsibilities associated with marriage. It's a brand-new day!

My Open Letter to Twin Peaks Charter School - Jared Polis


Dear Ms. Kathy DeMatteo:

I write to you regarding the recent graduation ceremonies at Twin Peaks Charter Academy. It was reported in the Daily Camera and national news sources that a student at Twin Peaks, where you serve as Board Chair, was not allowed to give his valedictorian speech at graduation and denied public recognition of his academic honors solely on the basis of his sexual orientation, which was contextually indicated in his proposed speech.

Evan's Full Graduation Speech


Evan Young was unable to give his speech at graduation, despite graduating with a 4.48 GPA as his class' Valedictorian. There has been a lot of discussion about this "controversial" speech, however we're all glad that now everyone can hear Evan's truth and know he didn't want anything more than to share a special moment with his graduating class of 30.

My Message to Twin Peaks Charter School


"My name is Evan Young. I was the valedictorian of Twin Peaks High School’s 2015 graduating class, but was not allowed to deliver my prepared speech at the graduation ceremony on May 16th.
