Many people in the LGBTQ and allied communities were surprised and disturbed by the outcome of the recent presidential election. The election results represent different things to different people, and some in our communities feel shattered and overwhelmed.

Family building

I have been practicing in the area of GLBT family rights and protection since the early 1990’s. My practice has included adoptions and assisted reproductive technology (ART) law, both of which areas have changed radically over the past 26 years.


Currently, the following options are available to gay and lesbian couples who have children together.


Building a family

I have been in the field of human reproduction for almost 30 years. During that time there have been advancements in the field that have led to increased pregnancy and take home baby rates. But that isn't all that has changed. The stigmatism around same sex couples having and raising children has begun to lift. I am excited by this change and proud to be a part of it.



I started interning with Out Boulder two months ago when my dear friend from Naropa University referred me to their organization. I applied online and received a response almost immediately from the Volunteer Coordinator, Nate George, who welcomed me on board within the following week. My first day volunteering was similar to being adopted into a quaint, loving family.


Out Boulder County to Open Longmont Location

It's time to support Out Boulder County in a BIG Way!  We've secured an additional office on Main Street in Longmont. We’ve also changed our name to Out Boulder County to better reflect the work we do in support of the mission of the organization.


Serving Homeless LGBTQ Youth in Longmont

Home O' Hope was founded in 2008 from the combined passions of two therapists in the Boulder community, SE Rafferty, LPC, LAC and Amy Winchester, MA, LPC. Both women have similar experience working within the Department of Human Services and Foster Care systems in Boulder and Denver. Before coming together on Home O' Hope, they had independently worked with LGBTQ kids who were struggling with their identities within the system.


Violence and Visibility: A Transgender Retrospective for 2015

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.
