Which major Colorado cities are most (and least) LGBT-friendly?

The Human Rights Campaign has just released an ambitious study entitled the Municipal Equality Index. The goal: to grade cities across the country when it comes to LGBT inclusivity in municipal law.

Of the 291 cities analyzed, four were from Colorado: Denver, Boulder, Aurora and Colorado Springs. Of the quartet, two wound up with mediocre tallies, while the other two were much better, with the last just shy of a perfect score. Look below to see photos and data for each, followed by the complete report.
