DENVER - As Colorado's civil unions law takes effect at midnight on May 1, LGBT advocacy group One Colorado will join couples in the Webb Municipal Office Building atrium and offer civil-union ceremonies performed by local judges, magistrates and qualified religious and lay officiants.

Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock will be among those performing ceremonies beginning at midnight.

The Denver Office of the Clerk and Recorder will begin at midnight to issue licenses to couples who wish to be among the first in the state to enter into a civil union.

Out Boulder, a LGBT advocacy group, is working very closely with the Boulder County Clerks office to also be open at midnight for civil unions licensing and ceremonies.
