Local News: Colorado Springs, Denver

LGBT Rights in Colorado: A constitutional ban on same-sex marriage was approved by 56% of Colorado voters in 2006. Civil Unions between same-sex couples are legal under a law that went into effect May 1, 2013. In Colorado, it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression in employment, housing, public accommodations, education and credit. The state's hate crimes law has provided protection based on both sexual orientation and gender identity or expression since 2001.

Current challenges to Colorado’s same-sex marriage ban: Brinkman v. Long, McDaniel-Miccio v. Hickenlooper.
