ABOUT US: We are queer (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex) and straight hikers, skiers, backpackers and more. We embrace diversity and celebrate our differences. All orientations, straight and gay, are welcome as well as all gender identities and expressions. ABOUT THIS EVENT: Join Hiking With Pride for a fun evening of party games and laughs. RSVP POLICY: 1. Update your RSVP status by 6pm on Thursday 10/18. This allows those on the waitlist to plan accordingly. If you cancel after 6pm on Thursday, you will be marked as a no-show. (Please don't 'announce' your change to "no" in the comments.) 2. The new MeetUp interface makes managing "+1" difficult. Message me directly if you need to delete a "+1." (Sorry, I cannot add a "+1" once the event is full. The +1 will need to have an account & sign up on the waitlist.) NOTE: I am traveling through Wed 10/17, and will have intermittent internet access. Responses to messages will be slow. TRAILHEAD LOCATION & MEETING TIME: 700pm - Lobby of 100 Park Ave West Condos. The lobby entrance is on 20th Ave where Pearl St dead ends.

What we're about

We are queer (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex) and straight hikers, skiers, backpackers and more. We embrace diversity and celebrate our differences. All orientations, straight and gay, are welcome as well as all genderidentities and expressions.

Being queer puts a different slant on life and laughing helps us through the rough times. Our unique brand of humor distinguishes gay hiking from its all straight counterpart. And yes that means we have more fun, but you already knew that!

Our group centers around day hiking, camping, overnight backpacking, snowshoeing, skiing/snowboarding, fishing, peak bagging and dog friendly trips.

Our day hiking adventures include beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

Our backpacking adventures, typically 1-3 nights,include spring, summer and winter trips in the Rocky Mountains. All skill levels are welcome.

Our meetups are focused on building quality friendships in a no-pressure environment. We enjoy each other's company on the trail and recoup with comforting foods after a great trip.

If you are new to playing in the Rocky Mountains, you are in good company. Many of our members recently moved to Colorado and need to ease into their outdoor experiences. If you have any questions about the group or preparing for activities, let me know.

Best,
