LGBT History of Denver: Another Side of Colorado’s History
Saturday, March 30, 2019 | 1:00PM — 3:00PM
In the 1800s, Denver’s districts of debauchery included access to “nymphs and fairies.” The state’s legal documents talked of “crimes against nature,” and dressing in “non-conforming” clothing could lead to violence. Colorado has come a long way since then in its views on the lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgered community. From police raids and quietly whispered names of bars serving a special clientele to the days of marriage equality and high school support groups, we explore the local story—much of which is only now being documented by the people who saw it and lived it.
History Colorado Tours & Treks offers a grand assortment of travels to enrich your understanding of our state’s history, and beyond. Our 2019 tours reflect the growing interest and excitement in our state’s history and seeing its heritage as a firsthand experience. Walk in the footsteps of those who founded our state, our towns and our counties. Each trip is specially designed to inspire wonder in our past.
