Accessibility

Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Statement

The Center aspires to be inclusive of all people regardless of ability. Accessibility considerations informed the design of our physical space and website, and assistance for the hearing or visually impaired can be provided on an as-needed basis for The Center's meetings, events and programs.

Please notify The Center via email at info@glbtcolorado.org at least two weeks prior to attending a meeting, event, or program to discuss any necessary accommodations. If you have additional accessibility needs that you would like addressed by The Center, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Parking

Parking in The Center’s lot is limited. ADA-accessible parking spaces are available at the front of the building. On-street parking is also available. We advise that you do not park in the lots of our neighboring merchants, as towing is enforced by these merchants 24/7.

Cyber Center

LGBTQ individuals have a safe and free location in Denver to obtain internet access, create resumes and presentations, conduct research, attend computer training classes, and participate in other activities in a supportive environment.

The Cyber Center is made possible with a generous grant from the David Bohnett Foundation and is open to the public.

Terry Mangan Memorial Library

The Terry Mangan Memorial Library is home to more than 3,000 volumes of LGBTQ texts, making it the largest lending library of its kind in the state.

Built entirely on donations, the original seed collection was gifted to The Center in 1976 in memory of Terry Mangan, one of Colorado’s first gay activists and archivists. Terry Mangan founded the Gay Liberation Front and was the first coordinator of the Gay Coalition, a group established in Denver in 1973 to combat police harassment of gay men and lesbians. He also authored the book Colorado on Glass: Colorado’s First Half Century As Seen by the Camera; which was published in 1975.

From leisure-reading fiction to LGBTQ history and everything in between, The Terry Mangan Memorial Library houses a diverse collection of books, magazines, journals, and other materials.

The library can be found on the first floor of The Center and is open to the public. All materials are available for circulation.
