Explore Queer Capitol Hill, this tour will take guests through Bachelor's Row and look at how single apartments offered privacy for a closeted community. We'll explore how public spaces were a refuge and places to connect for LGBTQ people. And we will look at how laws such as anti-crossdressing and R-0 zoning kept queer Denver heavily policed and segregated. Finally, we will look at places of liberation like the first headquarters of the Gay Coalition of Denver, apartments for Denver Area Mattachine Society, and the first headquarters for the Gay Community Center of Colorado. From within the spaces of Capitol Hill came the hearts and activism of generations of queer people. A legacy born of streets, parks, and private spaces.
