You might have read about it on Friday -- you know, Running of the Gays -- here on Show and Tell, when Jef Otte previewed the event with the news that he would be running with the gays -- yesterday, he won that race. Congratulations, sir. We sent photographer Aaron Thackeray into the field on Sunday and he brings back these photos from the Denver's first-ever Running of the Gays. Here's to hoping this new event has a long lifespan in Denver. See the full Running of the Gays slideshow. A few highlights are below.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
