Welcome to the Roaring Fork Gay & Lesbian Community Fund or AspenOUT our easier to remember moniker for us locals.

Our organization hosts a variety of programs and events including educational forums, dinners, workshops, meetings, outings and parties. Our signature fundraising opportunity of the year is the fabulous Aspen Gay Ski Week each January, which brings over 5,000 LGBTQ visitors during the week. We also host smaller fundraising opportunities throughout the year. Whether you are a long-time local or just visiting for a few days we invite you to join any and all of our events. You can find out about what events are coming up by visiting our event calendar, or joining us our our Facebook page!
As much as AspenOut is about fun, the Roaring Fork Gay and Lesbian Community Fund is about giving back to our community and improving life for all people here in the Roaring Fork valley. From Aspen all the way down to Rifle and over to Vail, we strive to provide resources to help the diverse LGBTQ community flourish and come together under one central organization. We take our mission seriously and invite you to become apart of this growing mission.
AspenOUT continues to focus on the mission statement of the RFGLCF – Promoting tolerance, understanding and diversity through education, community action and service. AspenOUT engages in local community service projects such as; group work days at Habitat for Humanity, hosting a monthly event at the Glenwood Springs hot pools, community dinners and functions such as Guerilla Gay Bars at locations throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.
