Being Gay in Denver

Some places are just more gay-friendly than others.

Denver is an LGBTQ-friendly city; as a more open-minded place, Denver has a lot to offer the LGBTQ crowd.

A progressive, or liberal, attitude pervades Denver politics, and the more liberal folks among us tend to reside in and around Denver. You can see this is true by their progressive marijuana laws. Denver was one of the first places to make cannabis use legal, and that includes recreational cannabis as well as medical marijuana. YOu can also see evidence of the liberal vibe when it comes to the LGBTQ scene in Denver. The Mile High City has a casual, welcoming feel to it, and if you want to come out, why not do so in Denver. Denver PrideFest is a huge gay pride event, culminating with a grand parade. If you want to hit up the shops or get in a little nightlife, some Denver neighborhoods cater to the gay and lesbian crowd a bit more than others. The RiNo neighborhood, the Cherry Creek area, and the Capitol Hill District all boast welcoming arms to LGBTQ+. There is a chamber of commerce especially focused on LGBTQ businesses, so if you want to support those who support you, you can check them out for advice on where to go and what to do. Red Rocks Park is open every day and is home to all kinds of live music events. Keep an eye out for those specifically geared to gay and lesbian performances.
