GLS (Gay & Lesbian Sierrans) are working on changing their name to have a more inclusive name.

Wilderness Therapy has slowly been growing in the US over the last 20 years, and the beautiful mountains and plains of Colorado have been a backdrop for countless wilderness programs.

The LGBT Parent Group for Boulder and Beyond is starting as a Facebook group for LGBT parents to connect with ongoing intentions to meet for social events and support once there is a solid following. Their goal is to provide an opportunity to build a community of LGBT parents and their children in Boulder and beyond.
