Colorado State Capitol

Colorado’s 2023 State Legislative Session begins each January, starting the 120-day count-down for legislators, lobbyists, and advocates to move bills through the process of becoming a state law. Bills are often slow to be introduced at first, but the pace quickly accelerates with hundreds of bills by the end of session.

  • What to expect this session: This year, we’re supporting bills to protect providers of abortion and gender-affirming care from interstate threats, increase access to health care, support LGBTQ+ youth in schools, and more. We’re also stepping up once again to defend our community against political attacks, like the anti-trans sports ban.
  • Stay tuned: From the start of session until May 8th, we’ll be advocating at the Capitol to make LGBTQ+ voices heard. We hope you join us!

2022 LGBTQ+ Equality Colorado Legislative Scorecard

How do your state legislators score when it comes to guaranteeing a fair and just state for LGBTQ+ Coloradans and their families?

One Colorado’s Legislative Scorecard highlights the priorities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+)
Coloradans and their families in the 2022 legislative session. In this scorecard, you will find accurate, nonpartisan information
on bills related to LGBTQ+ equality and how each member of the legislature voted on issues that directly affect Colorado’s
LGBTQ+ community.


Were your legislators champions for LGBTQ+ equality this year? Call or email them to thank them. Alternatively, if you aren’t satisfied
with how your representatives voted on this year’s scorecard, you can call, email, send a letter, or attend their town hall meetings to
let them know how you feel. One Colorado will be making sure voters across the state know how their legislators voted on LGBTQ+
equality. If you want to help us hold our elected officials accountable, sign up to participate with us at our Volunteer Page.
