Queer Capitol Hill

For decades, Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood has been a center of queer life, love, and liberation. It’s been home to bars and bookstores, coffee shops and community centers, and many other places and spaces where LGBTQIA+ Coloradans gathered and organized.

This exhibit highlights seven places in Capitol Hill where Denver’s queer history happened from the 1950s through the 1970s – all places you can visit today. Told through comic-style illustrations by B. Erin Cole, this exhibit is a historian’s sketchbook of the queer past that still lingers in Capitol Hill today.
