Winter PRIDE 


Winter PRIDE for the Alliance has been a small, weekend festival to celebrate and remind our community that we can have pride all year around!  This festival usually features a Winter Wonderland dance, happy hours, and live entertainment.  Last but not least, you know we have to get out and play in the snow in the mountains.  Queer snowpeople, they exist.


Visit our PRIDE 2023 page for information on our notorious Fall Pride Festival.





World AIDS Day 


The Alliance partnered with the YAY! Foundation to bring a comedy/drag extravaganza, along with an amazing comedy workshop.

COMET Training


Changing our Mental and Emotional Trajectory, or COMET, is training for responding to those in vulnerable situations.  This training focuses on rural and agricultural communities, and provides in-depth insight to reacting without fixing, but rather support and understanding. 


*Please contact Liza@thealliance.gay for more info on becoming registered for COMET training.  Currently available to our board members.
