The Center on Colfax is leaving Twitter.

We have made the decision to no longer be active with our Twitter account effective today, May 12, 2023. The direction Twitter has taken does not align with The Center’s mission or values.

The Twitter landscape has become an unsafe platform for LGBTQ+ and BIPOC people. Anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ+ tweets have greatly increased, as well as anti-Black and antisemitic hate speech published under the guise of “free speech".

Rolling back LGBTQ+ safety measures pulls Twitter out of synch with TikTok, Pinterest, and Meta (Facebook/Instagram), which all maintain policies to protect users at a time when anti-transgender and anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric is at an all-time high. 2023 is on pace to be a record-setting year for state legislation targeting LGBTQ+ adults and youth. Now is a time to lift up the voices of those who are most vulnerable and most marginalized, and to take a stand against those whose actions are quite the opposite.

While we will no longer be active on our Twitter profile, you can still find us on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn, where we will continue to share information and give a voice to Colorado’s LGBTQ+ community. We remain committed to ensuring that every member of the LGBTQ+ community has access to the programs and resources they need to live happy, healthy, and productive lives.
