Even though each one of us at Gender Identify Center may walk through these doors with unique stories, experiences, and values, I believe each one of us wants to be accepted and connect with others.  

Today:  I challenge myself and anyone out there that is reading this to slow down, listen, and put aside our belief that things and people are supposed to be a certain way and enjoy the beauty of diversity and uniqueness.

Happy Sunday!!!

What's New at the GIC

So, what's new and happening at the Gender Identity Center of Colorado? Lot's of things! Fall means a lot of new interns are coming in and shaking things up. We all have different experiences and come from a variety of schools, including University of Colorado, Regis, and University of Denver. We all have a passion for working with clients on a multitude of issues, including trans* identity, gender identity, and everything else that may come up for our various clients.

Client needs vary and some cases are more challenging than others, but one thing that remains constant, the clinicians are qualified and talented individuals who want what's best for their clients. Many of you may not know the GIC also functions as a community center for trans* and gender non-conforming individuals, but also that all are welcome. We have support groups in the evenings, but there is always a volunteer waiting to help out, or a clinician available if you need to talk. So, drop by and say hello any time!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to start the year at GIC! Through my volunteerism over the summer I have already met so many wonderful people and cannot wait to continue the journey.  I am also very excited to start the beauty workshops starting the first weekend in October! I love being able to share one of my passions with those who are equally as interested and passionate.

I hope everyone has a great week and see you soon!

Hello! This is my first post on the blog, and I am looking forward to reading what everyone has to share! As the summer is starting to wind down, and fall is nearing, so many new interns are starting. While I have gotten the opportunity to start at the GIC in May, I have only recently gotten the opportunity to meet many of the interns. Everyone I have met has been really great and  I am looking forward to continuing to get to know everyone!

Fresh New Faces

It looks like I am among the first of the new crop of interns to log in and say hello to everyone.  I can only speak for myself, but I would assume the rest of us feel this way, and that is I am so excited!

So that being said, I invite everyone to drop into the GIC in the next few weeks.  We have so many new faces, all of whom I have now had the opportunity to meet and they are great.  Now I want to meet everyone else!  So come in and say hi, to myself and all the other new interns.  I am excited to meet you.

Come say hello!

Hi everyone... so this will be my last week before some time off from the GIC, since my internship ends next week (8/14). You will most likely be seeing me around in the Fall, and I will make sure to let you guys know what days I will be around! As for now though, please come say hello either today, Monday, or next Thursday... Would love to see some familiar faces, or meet a few new ones before my break. Happy Thursday everyone- make it a good one!

Quote of the day

“Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn't what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You...Be Free...Share.”
