Thousands of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people and their supporters will gather Saturday morning and afternoon for Denver's 32nd annual Pride Fest.

Previous events have drawn up to 200-thousand people to the Civic Center.

It commemorates the launch of the modern gay-rights movement during New York's Stonewall Riots in 1969.

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and his predecessor, Wellington Webb, have been supporters of gay rights and sponsors say it is one of the ten largest in the nation.
