The Center on Colfax celebrated it's 45th anniversary at The Asterisk Denver on Saturday, September 18th. This year’s event theme was “The Art of Community” and featured the works of local artists who pay homage to LGBTQ+ icons.

Thanks to our supporters, we raised over $90,000 to benefit The Center’s core programs, which serve a wide variety of LGBTQ+ people from our community. Programs include Rainbow Alley, Denver’s only drop-in center for LGBTQ+ youth and young adults aged 11–21; SAGE of the Rockies, which offers social, recreational, and educational activities for older LGBTQ+ adults and allies; and the Transgender Services Program, which provides weekly social and support programs for transgender and nonbinary individuals.

Thank you to our sponsors and attendees for a fabulous evening!
