This past year has been an unprecedented year of visibility for the transgender community. Janet Mock started her show on MSNBC, the first in history hosted by a transgender person. We also saw trans people honored by awards, shown in film, portrayed on TV, and we even saw our stories told to the next generation through children's books.
Grateful for this lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community,
Grateful for our volunteers,
Grateful for our community partners,
Grateful for our allies,
Grateful for our board,
And grateful for you!
On October 15, 2015, millions of people across the country will wear purple to take a stand against bullying -- and in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender young people. We are encouraging all Coloradans to wear purple and participate in Spirit Day with One Colorado and GLAAD. Take the Spirit Day Pledge today.
Dave Ensign will be the recipient of this year’s Boulder County AIDS Project Local Legends award for his decades of service to the LGBTQ community in Boulder.

Dave has also been the President of the BCAP Board for 2 years, and still hosts Out Boulder’s yearly Garden Party fundraiser, which has continued to be one of our most important events of the year.
This group is intended for anyone ages 13-18 who is struggling with their gender identity, exploing new ways of expressin their gender, or who identify as transgender, gender queer, gender fluid, agender, and any other non-cisgender identity.

In a concerted effort to add additional trans* voices to the public conversation about transgender identities and realities, Out Boulder is launching a Trans* Visibility Bus Board Campaign the week of September 7, 2015. This campaign is modeled after a similar effort conducted in Washington DC in 2012.
“SEA LEVEL IS FOR SISSIES” stared me in the face as I sat behind a blue Subaru waiting for a red light to change on the border of Boulder and Louisville. I could feel my blood pressure rising as my hands gripped tightly to my steering wheel. I started to notice the string of thoughts running through my head.
