Rainbow Elders of Boulder County


The Coffee Klatch (held every 2nd and 4th Wednesday morning of the month at the Lafayette Senior Center) is now co-facilitated by Dana Samani and Wendy Miller.

The Rainbow Supper Club (held every 2nd Thursday of the month) is now organized and facilitated by Diana Mapes.

THANK YOU to the three of you for stepping up to lead our growing groups!



Earlier this month, Out Boulder County welcomed the Rainbow
Elders as a community cornerstone of Boulder PrideFest, a
widely attended, energetic, and engaging Pride celebration that burst with
community involvement throughout the entire week of Pride events.

The exciting week of events began with a Rainbow Elders
mixer at Golden West, graciously and beautifully organized by BCAAA volunteer
Mark Holdbrooks, where community members enjoyed social activities such as
“human BING-O” and informational offerings from LGBT-inclusive housing
representatives in Boulder County. Older LGBT adults in Boulder County
continued their involvement by attending other Pride events, including a
screening of the film “Real Boy” and a retro-fantastic “80’s Dance Party.”

Everyone in the county seemed to come out on the day of the
actual PrideFest on Sunday and the Rainbow Elders/ Project Visibility booth was
a hopping and happening place. A steady troupe of volunteers shared facts
about LGBT older adults and the BCAAA in general, while engaging the public in
trivia games and prizes. Meanwhile, LGBT Program Specialist, Beit Gorski, made the
rounds to the booths of more than 20 community partners interested in expanding
inclusive services to the “rainbow elders of Boulder County.”

Visible, out, proud, connected--- by all measures, Boulder
PrideFest was a success for LGBT older adults and advocates!
