Best First Friday Outgrowth Denver 2008 - Babes Around Denver

Before BAD was officially BAD, Dede Frain founded the social network that would grow into Babes Around Denver on the strength of a little First Friday gathering in 2002 that quickly outgrew one venue after another. She began to organize other lesbian networking and singles events, started a website and newsletter, and last year finally left the mainstream workforce and went full-time in her role as big BAD girl. Since then, Frain has added a women's business series with guest speakers and has a million other ideas up her sleeve. For gals who love gals (as well as their gay and non-gay pals), BAD is good.

You deserve this recognition, Dede! The Denver metro area is very lucky to have your time and effort dedicated to putting together multiple events each month!! When you're ready to take your BAD show on the road, Salt Lake City could use your talents:)
