DENVER - Jan. 11, 2017 - PRLog -- AARP Colorado has announced the launch of a new audio tour on the Geotourist smartphone app for older lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans. The audio tour, produced in collaboration with Denver Walking Tours and the GLBT Community Center of Colorado, willguide locals and visitors through Denver's LGBT landmarks right on their smartphones.

The tour celebrates the diversity and history of the LGBT community in the Capitol Hill neighborhood and visits points of interest along Colfax Avenue. The 10-point tour includes Cheesman Park, the site of Denver's first Pride celebration; Charlie's, that hosted the Colorado Gay Rodeo Association; and Smiley's Laundromat, a community landmark which generated intense debate about historic preservation and community identity.

To access AARP Colorado's LGBT history tour users can download the Geotourist app for free on iTunes and Google Play app stores. The GPS-led app will guide users from site-to-site, while playing the audio of each site's history. Pictures will help users identify the sites. Users will be able to take the tour at their own pace and time.

Tour info is available at:  http://geotourist.com/news/2016/12/29/aarp-co-lgbt-tour/
