COVID-19 POLICY ENFORCED | security statement

mask encouraged not required for events
In light of the recent events, Black Pride Colorado is taking additional safety precautions to protect our attendees and spaces without involving law enforcement. The Denver Dyke March will be providing security at the Strange Fruit of Black Excellence Gala at the Botanic Gardens and our other events will have security provided by the venue. We believe that safety and comfort are paramount, especially when it comes to Black and Brown, queer, transgender and non-binary people of color. If at any time you feel unsafe while attending a Black Pride Colorado event, please notify a committee member and/or event security immediately. Bigotry in any form will not be tolerated.
