"You must come out! ...once and for all, break down the myths, destroy the lies and distortions. For your sake. For their sake. For the sake of the youngsters who are becoming scared...you must come out!" - Harvey Milk
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.” – Maya Angelou
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.
Join Out Boulder for our annual Valentine's Day Red Party!
This year, Happy/The Bitter Bar will be hosting us for a memorable social night of dancing, libations and a whole lot of Out Boulder fun!
The fabulous Nick James from Salt Lake will be making his Boulder debut!
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
does, her five year old mind turned that into, “My uncle writes stories.”
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 :) ).
Out Boulder ‘s BOLD OffBeat Arts program will be opening the Pride House for a youth (13-21) study and creative space/writing group for the Spring 2011 semester every Tuesday afternoon from 4-7, beginning January 11.
From 4-6 we will have quiet study/creative space and from 6-7 we will hold a creative writing group. We will have some small snacks, study areas, and access to Out Boulder’s six Mac computers.
"It is not enough to say we must not wage war. It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it." On January 17, people across the country gather together to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community organizing, at its heart, is community connection. This celebration connects us to one another through our passion for equality; our hope for a better future; and diverse expressions of creativity and inspiration. Please join with us and the community of Boulder to be part of the Rally to Restore His Legacy!
