Summer is rapidly approaching and you might be considering what you want to put on your Colorado summer bucket list.
As many know, June is national Pride Month. What some might not know is that metro Denver has the seventh largest LGBTQ+ community in the United States. As the first openly gay Governor, Governor Polis has made inclusivity and “Colorado for All” a cornerstone of his administration.
The LGBTQ+ community represents huge buying potential. Gay men and lesbians own more homes and cars, travel more, spend more on electronics and have the largest disposal income of any niche market. The community represents approximately 10 percent of the US consumer market.
Economic Development Week is an international campaign to increase awareness of local programs that create jobs, advance career development opportunities and improve the quality of life in communities all over the world.
