Featuring God-Des & She, The Tah Tahs, Vendors, AFTER PARTY and much more!
Out Boulder is honored to still be hosting its 10th Anniversary of Boulder Pridefest after being postponed due to the extraordinary flood that affected much of Boulder County and other areas across the state. Pridefest will now take place at The Boulder Theater, Saturday, November 23rd, 2013. There will be vendors, entertainment and more from 3:00-8:00pm, with a special After Party to follow featuring DJ Tatiana.
This year’s passing of Civil Unions in Colorado has given us many reasons to celebrate the progress for the LGBTQ community in Colorado as a culmination of its 19-year history of fighting for equality in the Boulder community. We anticipate a record level of participation in this year’s Pridefest for our 10-year anniversary, for our Civil Union victory this year, and for our new and exciting venue for our community to convene after the devastating flood.
Pridefest Coordinator and Events Manager, Aubree Peckham says: “This is going to be a brand new Pridefest for the Boulder County LGBTQ and allied community. Our pride in the park may have been rained out, but our rainbow will shine on and bring our community together for day of healing, camaraderie and celebration.”
The legendary Boulder Theater will host our revamped 10th Annual Boulder Pridefest. This historic venue opened in 1906 as an opera house, and over the years the theater has undergone major state of the art renovations leaving our community with the Boulder Theater we know and love. Our entertainers will share the same stage that has hosted thousands of respected national, international and local artists performing today.
Out Boulder is especially proud to announce God-Des & She as the headliner of our entertainment stage. God-Des & She were first seen on the Showtime television series “The L Word” and had a number one video on MTV LOGO for 15 weeks with their song “Love You Better”. Since then they have toured worldwide, sharing the stage with artists including; Lady Gaga, Salt n’ Pepa, and SIA, and have released three albums to critical acclaim. They just released their 4th album, “United States of God Des and She” in February 2013. More information about the band is available at: http://www.god-desandshe.com/
Also performing is The Tah Tahs. The Tah Tahs are a fun high energy all female band who has played with Dizzy Reed of Guns N’ Roses, Taylor Dayne, Hell’s Belles and many other talented musicians. They play covers as well as original rock songs and have toured the U.S. Their first EP is in the works. More information about the Tah Tahs is available at: http://www.thetahtahs.com/
