The vision of the LGBTQIA+ initiative at the JCC mirrors the mission of the JCC Denver to welcome everyone into our community. Through this initiative, the JCC will create and provide year-round programming to engage this integral segment of our community. Through this programming, we aim to engage different types of people (ex: couples with children, single people, couples without children) that identify in the LGBTQI community, as well as Allies.

The committee planning these programs are comprised of JCC staff as well as volunteers that are committed to engaging and welcoming everyone to the J. Similarly, we are welcoming committee members from organizations such as Jewish Colorado, Judaism Your Way, The Center, One Colorado, OutFront Magazine, Transgender Center of the Rockies, and many other local synagogues.

We have had some seriously fun programming so far in 2020! From Drag Royalty Bingo to a Virtual Family Planning Panel, to name a few! Join our Facebook Group for up to date information and the chance to register for these fabulous events.

“The family planning panel was wonderful. These are important topics, and it’s amazing for the JCC to be providing the necessary resources.”


“At Drag Bingo we were met with smiles and hello’s by everyone…the feeling of inclusiveness was actually the first comment me and my partner made to each other once we had got in the car at the end of the night.”
