Connecting The Local Queer Community

What is Bconnected?

I created this site as a way to connect local LGBTQ people to resources, a community calendar, and a listing of queer owned businesses.

Note that there are no ads on this site, nor are there any sponsors or businesses listed that are not queer owned. This is a space that is 100% LGBTQ.

Bconnected is designed to run itself. I draw from various local calendars to generate the community calendar. The $5 to list your business pays for hosting the site, as well as a bookkeeper and a web developer who both work a handful of hours quarterly to keep Bconnected running.

Please use this site to find local LGBTQ groups to hang out with, to find and support local queer owned business, or to list your own business.

Queer Market Place

Queer Market Place is new. The more of us that list our business or service on the page the more useful it will become. Please be patient and help spread the word! Use the Market Place for anything you’re doing commercially (maybe you work full-time for The Man but want to sell something you make on the side–use the Queer Market Place to link to your website/etsy store/or FB page).

I have no intention of fundraising or getting any kind of sponsorship for this site for two reasons–ONE: Baby, I don’t have time for that non-sense. TWO: We don’t need anyone’s money…we can do this ourselves, grassroots.

I created this site in my spare-time and with my own money…there’s a few kinks to work out, so please bare with me. Once you list your business you can’t edit it–email me if you need to make changes. three@bconnectedcolorado.com

One Big Queer Family

If you identify as something other than bisexual/pansexual–welcome! Hopefully this site will help you get connected to the local queer scene.

What Resources Do We Have?

We’ve compiled books, graphic novels, articles, websites, and links to local groups we think will help you come out and B out. Click here to see

Already Out & Proud?!

Great–come find the rest of us 🙂 It’s important that we have community together so we can normalize our existence, have friends that understand our highs and lows, and do our part to create more safety and acceptance for all of the members of our queer family. AND we need to show the 70% of bisexuals that are closeted how cool we are so they come out too.

Come Find Us!

Click on the calendar to find local groups hosting activities. These are groups welcoming to anyone on the LGBTQAI spectrum.

We run the Denver Metro Bisexuals’ Social Club

Lisa Brodsky “Three”

 

I am originally from Idaho but have been in Colorado since 2003. I live in Longmont with my husband and two kids and work in graphic design. Coming out as bi in my 30’s as a married person was challenging and lonely. After realizing how closeted and under represented bisexuals are, and that dating apps were the only way to meet people, I created a Meetup called The Denver Metro Bisexuals’ Social Club with the hopes of rounding up more bisexuals to build community with. The Meetup now has over to 1000 members and is growing. Building community and creating a space for bisexuals/pansexuals is one of my passions.

I built this site with the hopes of facilitating more involvement from the B’s within the greater LGBTQ community. I also want to create a local Queer micro economy.

Timmy EverLes

 

Timmy was raised in rural Missouri by her two moms and lived with her dad in Kansas City on weekends. Due to the culturally insensitive climate at the K-12 country school that she attended, she was often bullied by her peers for having gay parents. After working through this trauma and embracing her own bisexuality in adulthood, she has made it her mission in life to create as many safe spaces and support for others as possible, especially individuals targeted for being different.

She moved to Denver the summer of 2015 to escape the Midwest mindset and to find a master’s program in counseling. Her days mostly consist of working way too many hours in the human services field and studying to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) at Regis University. In her off-time she can be found co-organizing the Denver Metro Bisexuals’ Social Club on meetup.com, volunteering for local LGBT and human service groups, researching art therapy techniques, dreaming up anti-bullying campaigns, touring art museums and galleries, hiking, climbing rocks, baking gluten-free desserts, crocheting funtabulous hats, and snapchatting photos of her herd of cats.

 

Lyon Pound

 

Born to American parents in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Tadgh (Tad) Pound, aka Lyon (because its easier to pronounce and cooler sounding than ‘Tad’) is a Licensed Practical Nurse, a writer with aspirations of being an Author, part time musician, and Nice guy even if he tries to convince others he’s not. Tadgh came out in stages. First to himself, then his friends, and then to the rest of the world over many years. He didn’t start living genuinely until 2012. “We as bisexuals/Pansexuals need community if for no other reason than we are still viewed by so many as mythical at best, and hypocritical at worst. Like so many minorities, we are simply struggling to be acknowledged for who and what we are. Why should our ability to find pleasure, love, and happiness with either men or women (as well as all the diversity in-between) preclude us from the same rights as our Heterosexual or Homosexual counter parts? We need community because misinformation, hearsay, and word of mouth is still the prime source of education, and information to the rest of the world. We need community because we as human beings first, and bisexual people second, need that feeling of acceptance, support, and contact with others.
