DENVER, CO – Denver Pride weekend is fast approaching and event organizers have worked tirelessly to plan for changes to public health guidelines and COVID-19 rates. But the organizers are successful and offer both virtual and personal celebrations.
Rex Fuller, CEO of The Center on Colfax, has been organizing the Denver PrideFest since the early 1990s. Fuller wrote a letter to the Colorado LGBTQ community in April describing the struggles many faced during the pandemic.
“The past year has also taught us so much about the power and strength that we find in the community,” the letter says in part. “I’m so proud of our staff, program participants, and the LGBTQ community in Colorado who virtually came together for many Center on Colfax programs over the past year, including the first-ever Virtual Denver PrideFest.”
The new Pride Hubs are an option for those who want to meet in person to celebrate Denver pride. There will be various hubs across the city – including The Center on Colfax Beer Garden, the Denver Film / Sie FilmCenter Bar and Stage, Hamburger Marys Drag Shows, and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science Family Area. Check out the details of each Pride Hub here.
