The Gender Identity Center of Colorado, Inc. is a non-profit corporation organized in 1978 and incorporated in June 1980. The organization was formed to provide support to anyone gender variant in their gender identity and expression. The Gender Identity Center of Colorado is also an informational and educational resource to the community at large. The Gender Identity Center of Colorado is available to anyone, male / female / other, who can benefit from its services or resources, including spouses, significant others, parents, and siblings.

The Gender Identity Center of Colorado is a tax exempt, 501(3)c nonprofit corporation which provides these public services to the community, but receives none of its support from tax dollars. It is funded by collection of tuition for seminars and workshops, counseling services, and donations. Receipts can be given for any donation of money or materials.

The mission of the GIC is to provide support for all gender identities and expressions through direct services and social change utilizing empowerment, identity affirmation, outreach, education, advocacy, creating safe spaces, and a sense of community.


Come see our Drag Show fundraiser!

The GIC is hosting its first ever charity drag show, Shiny & New. Come see our Executive Director, Dr. Karen Scarpella, members of our staff, and local talent perform in drag. It will be a memorable event and a GREAT fundraiser for the GIC. Our shiny and new space needs shiny and new programs to benefit our community.
