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.

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.


Thank you for your Support!

Since last Saturday night, I’ve been trying to find the words to express my joy and gratitude about the Shiny and New Drag Show. There are a lot of people to thank, especially Tracks for the space, and Brandi for mentoring me in my first ever Drag Show and putting on one heck of a show for everyone! Thank you to Martini for doing MC and our flyers and graphics, ICRME for supporting us with your performances, all the performers, Markie for being DJ of the year, Kate Christman for stage managing, Melody Flores for choreographing my numbers and the group numbers, and for all of you who made the evening so fun! We raised $5,278!!!!!
