Sunset Gathering (Denver)

Join us this summer for casual hang outs with friends, food, music and yard games in Boulder at Scott Carpenter Park and Denver and Cheesman Park!

Sunset is the perfect time to witness the beauty and wonder of transition. Magnificent colors are revealed in the in-between and at Sunset Gathering we come together to celebrate the vibrant, ever-changing landscape in ourselves and each other.

This is a space to meet and cultivate heart-centered queer and trans community, friendship and connection, so come out and play!

All ages are welcome and encouraged to come to gathering.

This is an alcohol-free space 🙂

Queer Asterisk will provide drinks and light snacks, please bring some food to share and yard games if you’d like!

Obey all traffic laws. Practice good bike etiquette. Use hand signals. – Never ride with earphones or ear bud(s).Pull off and stop when using a cell phone. – Participants should carry a pump, spare tube, patch kit, and money and know how to fix their own flats. Make sure to carry water and a snack as well. – Plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes before the start time with your bicycle ready to ride. This allows time to sign the waiver, listen to route instructions, meet the leader, and look at the map if available. – We also recommend that you print out the map for the ride you choose to do, if available from our website. For the group’s enjoyment as well as your own, choose a ride at the pace and distance that matches your current ability.All participants are expected to be personally responsible for their own conduct and decisions while on an OUTspokin’s ride.

Queer Writing Group
Jul 28 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Queer Writing Group

Queer Writing Group is a space for queer & trans folks to share dedicated time for writing together. Whether you are a published writer, or brand new to writing, you are welcome in this group.

This is not a space for critique, or a place to workshop pieces you’ve already written. It’s an opportunity to create new work, be impacted by one another’s words, and hone the uniqueness of each of our writing voices.

“Writing as an art form belongs to all people, regardless of economic class or education level. A writer is someone who writes.”
— Pat Schneider

For more information on the method, visit AmherstWriters.org
