When Denver celebrated its first Pride 50 years ago, about 50 people took part. Now that number is 500,000. On a special Colorado Matters, we share "A Half Century of Pride Stories," reflecting on the past while looking forward to the future. Our guests are LGBTQ+ historian Phil Nash, Denver comedian Kate McLachlan, and PhD student and advocate Lex Dunbar. We met in front of an audience at the Center on Colfax in Denver.
