Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Denver blogs are all-inclusive.

While comic Jordan Wieleba has been performing standup since 2006, her life and career really took shape after 2011, when the Denver native came out as transgender. Watch Westword videographer Andrew Bateman's report here.

And the right-leaning Colorado Peak Politics blog got into Interior Secretary Sally Jewell's decision to meet with Moffat and Rio Blanco County officials over the Colowyo coal mine.

Westword's Mark Antonation continues his series of chef reports from the new Avanti food hall with John Robbins of Souk Shawarma.

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.
