DENVER, CO – April 13, 2010: Team Colorado and The GLBT Community Center for Colorado are encouraging all to participate in the First Annual “Colorado LGBT Sportsfest”, which takes place at Denver’s Cook Park June 5th and 6th, 2010, 8am—8pm each day. The kick-off party takes place Friday, June 4, 2010, 7—10pm, at JRs Bar and Grill, Official Headquarters, in Denver.

“All are invited to attend this day in the park, whether or not you want to participate or try a new sport!  All social organizations, families, friends and individuals are encouraged to bring picnic spreads and activities to share: badminton, croquet, ladder ball, horseshoes, twister… everything goes!”, states festival producer R. Tony Smith. “We are also encouraging other sports and social organizations not yet signed up to contact us and get involved, whether or not you already have activities that weekend. Our hope is to let all of Colorado know about the abundant, vibrant and diverse sporting and social opportunities in the LGBT community.”

The spirit of the event is modeled after the successful hundred-plus year old Olympic spirit: “Celebrating friendship, solidarity and fair play.” Participating groups currently include Babes Around Denver (social group), Black Ice Rugby, Boulder Babes Rugby, Colorado Gay Volleyball Association, Colorado Volleyball Connection, Denver Area Tennis Enthusiasts, Denver Dykes on Bikes (for motorcycle display), Denver Frontrunners, Denver Gay & Lesbian Flag Football, Denver Wildfire Rugby, OUT Spokin’, and Sunday Afternoon Car Klub (for automobile show).

The GLBT Community Center for Colorado and Team Colorado, both 501c3 non-profit organizations, present the First Annual Colorado LGBT Sportsfest. The Official Sportsfest Headquarters is JR’s Bar and Grill. For more information, please visit
