Denver LGBTQ center changes name to reflect community

Posted

The GLBT Community Center of Colorado changed its name in late March to The Center on Colfax to better reflect the community it serves, according to a news release.

The Center has been serving the LGBTQ community in Colorado since it opened in 1976 as the Gay Community Center of Colorado. It now serves 52,000 people annually, the release said.

“As we have evolved over the years, we’ve made changes to include everyone we serve and those who contribute to our vibrant community, including women, bisexual people and transgender individuals,” said The Center’s CEO Debra Pollock in the release. “Our new name is intended to welcome all members of the community as our offerings continue to grow.”

The center offers programming for people of all ages. Rainbow Alley serves LGBTQ youth in Denver, while SAGE of the Rockies is meant for older adults. The Center also offers a program for transgender people, as well as legal referrals, human resource consulting and training. The Center runs Denver PrideFest every year, and the proceeds from the event go toward programming at the organization.
