    everyone

Something for Everyone is a series
of community events designed with
you in mind!
Each year The GLBT Community Center of Colorado will
present several fun, affordable, and accessible events
created to bring together the diverse members of
our community. 2009 is our inaugural year, and we’re
already excited to bring you events including culinary
classes, bowling parties, family perk and play, dog park
meet-ups, vegetarian cuisine at WaterCourse, a pancake
breakfast, martini tasting, Gaybutante, Jokers, Jewels,
and Justice, PrideFest, and much much more!

The events are open to everyone and range from free, to
$5, $15, $35 and up, and all of them benefit the critical
programming at The Center. Programming like Rainbow
Alley, our youth drop-in center, CLIP, our legal initiatives
project, and of course PrideFest, which now sees over
250,000 visitors annually. All of this work is supported by
the events in the Something for Everyone series.

No matter where you live, no matter what you do,
no matter who you know, The Center has a space for
     you to connect and a way to give back to your
        community. Take a look at the catalog and
           we know you’ll find a community event
            that’s calling just to you – after all, there’s
            Something for Everyone!
