We are always looking for volunteers to fill different needs for our community center. Volunteers can help us in many different ways. Some volunteers run community gatherings or support groups; others help by working at the front desk once a week. We also have an all-volunteer speaker's bureau called "Speaking Out," which goes into schools and other organizations to share LGBTQ stories and answer questions from the group. To volunteer please fill out this form!

Out Boulder County and our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community partners offer many activities and events each month. Some events are educational and feature guest speakers, workshops, films and lectures. Other events are more social and feature concerts, art openings, movies, dances, happy hours and potlucks.

Show: Observing and Understanding China

Bio:Timothy EverLes (pronouns: she/her/hers) moved to Denver 2.5 years ago from Kansas City. Timmy received her bachelor’s degree in psychology and studio art from the University of Missouri – Kansas City and is currently working towards her master’s degree in counseling at Regis. Photography, building community, and hiking are a few of her passions. Timmy volunteers much of her time building inclusive spaces for queer, trans, and bisexual individuals. Her most recent project is the Denver Queer Artist Collective on Facebook. 

Observing and Understanding China is a series of digital photographs documenting a study abroad trip in 2006. The month long trip took the students on a journey from Hong Kong to Beijing, from small poverty stricken farming villages to executive business offices and much more. While observing and appreciating many cultural differences, Timmy also noticed many economical shifts occurring in the country. Her photographs reflect these observations and understandings made about the country during a time of immense development.
