CU last weekend marked its eighth consecutive year as a proud sponsor of Denver Pride, the annual festival, parade and 5K race celebrating the LGBTQ+ community.

Members of the CU community – including students, staff and faculty from the four campuses and system administration – took part in the June 24-25 events at Denver’s Civic Center Park.

Denver Pride is produced by The Center on Colfax, a registered 501-c-3 nonprofit organization that provides year-round programs and services for the LGBTQ+ community. The city’s first Pride Month celebration took place in 1975 and was one of many commemorations established across the country following the 1969 Stonewall uprising in New York and years of community organizing and activism in response to discriminatory laws and practices against LGBTQ+ individuals.
