Most of you know my story of how I became an ally … I was only 31 at the time, and it took me another 30 years before I even knew that I could call myself an LGBTQ 'ally'. Then it took many years more to learn how to be a 'good ally'! I try hard to keep my mind and my heart open to learning something new every day.
I love Out Boulder County because every individual who works there is so unapologetically and stridently working to make everyone as welcome and encouraged as they possibly can. That is an organization and group of people that I am willing to put my full efforts behind.
She is extremely grateful for the generous support and acceptance from the Pridehouse staff and the whole Colorado LGBTQ community. Maya wants to help support and inspire others in the LGBTQ community to live authentically and chase their dreams.
She firmly believes that queer and trans youth are the future. Deeply grateful for the support she has received from members of the community, she seeks to help others feel welcomed and supported as well.
I just recently started my volunteer experience with OBC in December of 2017, but excited to see where I can be of more service with OBC in the future. This is a great organization and I am grateful to be a part of it.
In January 2017, she attended an Out Boulder County volunteer training and it changed her life. It was through volunteering for OBC that Cardi found her passion; working with LGBTQ+ youth and supporting her community.
Her dream is to move out to LA to pursue filming large-budget movies and playing music with as many awesome musicians as possible …. Ella enjoys being able to help out where she can by taking photos and doing graphic design work for OBC.
