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.

Message from Shawn Turk – President, Board of Directors
Over the past several years the demand for services and increased programming has far outpaced our own expectations, and we quickly outgrew our quaint location on Huron Street. Over a year ago, the Board and Staff embarked on a search for a space that will not only meet our current needs, but allow for room to continue growing. We are pleased to let the community know that, after many starts and stops, the GIC has found a new home, and just 3 miles from our existing location!
We have much to do over the next three months to prepare for a seamless transition to our new space, and we will continue to update the community on our progress as we embark on this new and exciting journey. We’ve already been blessed with a large corporate donation of gently used office furniture to help fill the space, but we could use additional help/donations for furnishings, décor, improvements and moving! Please contact Karen or I if you have questions or would like to help… and you can always donate on our webpage!
There should be no disruption to services throughout the process, and we will let everyone know when services officially transition to the new space.
Thank you to all of the staff, clinicians, interns, volunteers, board members, donors, sponsors, and community members that have helped make this a reality! We can’t wait to welcome you all to the new space, and be sure to join us in May 2017 for our annual Matt Kailey Spring Luau and Grand Opening to tour the new facility!
