HipChicksOut was founded by Silke Reuthlinger in 2005 as a monthly happy hour meetup for single women. It also began as a mission of visibility that offered lesbians a chance to experience “straight” spaces that they felt they weren’t safely allowed access to. Safety in numbers was the mode of operation and the group traveled from space to space monthly, every Second Friday, to gather as community for Happy Hour, to mingle, and to be seen and felt in Denver. The group recently changed ownership from Silke to local musicians and friends, Jen Korte and Sarah Slaton. We hope to create new social experiences, in addition to our Second Friday. Thank you for your patience while we’ve made this transition.
