A friend who works for the City of The People’s Republic of Fort Kollins forwarded this email to me.
Brace yourself for white woman virtue signalling.
It is difficult to know what to say after yet another senseless act of violence in a nearby community. Know that the Equity & Inclusion Office and the City organization stand in solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community in our organization, the community and the City’s PRIDE Employee Resource Group.
We mourn the lives lost in this hurtful, terrifying and irrational act of violence against the LGBTQ+ community in Colorado Springs.
Situations like the Club Q shooting are a stark reminder that many marginalized communities continue to be targeted based on intolerance, prejudice and hate. It is a time to be acutely aware of how we make the community safe for all and a reminder to pay attention to mental health issues, anti-LGBTQIA+ rhetoric, and the reality that events like these continue to occur in our country.
We have work to do to build an inclusive community where safety and belonging is for everyone and for every identity.
Here at the City of Fort Collins, we are wholeheartedly working to make meaningful connections to build an authentic sense of belonging for all community members of all identities. On Tuesday November 15th we celebrated Trans Acceptance Day with a community gathering and proclamation reading. This event is just one example that demonstrates our commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community and that we are partnering with other local organizations to create inclusion and acceptance of all. Our work will continue. We will not be deterred. We will continue to connect with individuals, families, and groups in Fort Collins to show our support and love for the LGBTQIA+ community.
The PRIDE Employee Resource Group is a safe place for employees. It is a space where employees accept and support each other. PRIDE exists so employees can have a space to share experiences and lean on each other.
To our PRIDE members and LGBTQIA + employees – we have scheduled an online session tomorrow to provide an opportunity to connect and process in a safe space. This space is hosted by Human Resources and MINES & Associates Jenny Robbins. Please join if you are able.

You might be wondering “what does Kelly DiMartino, the Fort Collins city manager, look like.” Well . . . Here it is.
Fort Collins City Council voted 7-0 to approve DiMartino’s contract on Tuesday night. Her base annual salary is $295,000. She’ll also receive health insurance, paid time off, a $1,000 monthly car allowance and a $100 monthly phone allowance, among other benefits. The approved base pay is higher than Atteberry’s previous salary of $278,475, which was above the 75th percentile of city manager pay for a group of 20 comparable cities as of 2019.
She’s making $300K a year to manage Fort Kollins and she can’t manage to stop stuffing donuts in her mouth.
Right then, let’s dig into this shooting like Kelly digs into the Golden Corral buffet.
In the hours before the shooting, Aldrich – whose attorneys say identifies as nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns – was planning to see a movie at 10 p.m. with their mother, Laura Voepel, according to the affidavit, which cites a detective’s conversation with Voepel after the shooting.
In the podcast I wondered “where were the parents.” After recording and doing the show notes I found out.
Ready for this?
Laura Voepel is the mother of accused Colorado Springs mass shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich.
She is also the daughter of Randy Voepel, an outgoing Republican state Assembly man in California. She was briefly married to Aldrich’s father, Aaron Brink, an adult film performer named “Dick Delaware” who has a criminal history and crystal meth addiction.
But wait, there’s more.
The mother of Anderson Lee Aldrich, the suspect in the Club Q shooting, has three outstanding warrants for her arrest out of California and an arson charge out of Bexar County, Texas (San Antonio).
That arson charge was reduced to a lesser charge.
Laura Lea Voepel, 45, was sentenced to five years of probation in Aug. 2013 and did not complete the probation terms, which were set to expire Aug. 2018, according to court records obtained by The Gazette.
“At the end of the day, the District Attorney made an offer of criminal mischief and probation,” said her court-appointed attorney, James Oltersdorf.
Oltersdorf said he never heard again from Voepel after he represented her.
I guess this proves that single mothers really can do it all.
Aldrich – whose attorneys say identifies as nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns – faces up to life in prison without parole if convicted on the first-degree murder charges, Allen said in a news conference after Tuesday’s hearing.
. . . . .
Ahead of an earlier hearing, Aldrich’s attorneys said the suspect identified as nonbinary and would be addressed as Mx. Aldrich – a distinction that Allen said would have “no impact” on his office’s prosecution of the case.
A neighbor of the accused shooter who said he sometimes played video games with Aldrich told CNN the suspect never mentioned they were nonbinary.
. . . . .
“The tragedy at Club Q shows that words matter and that words have real-world consequences,” Haynes said. “We continue to call out those who spread disgusting rhetoric and encourage violence against the LGBTQ community, to end this behavior immediately before more people get hurt. And we urge everyone to do what they can to speak up for LGBTQ people and everyone’s right to be safe.”
Is Aldrich really non-binary? Is Aldrich pretending to be non-binary to get sympathy? Is Aldrich engaging in an epic troll?
The Great One doesn’t care. The Great One fully supports mentally ill people killing each other.
In a letter sent to the judge dated Nov. 29, 2021, Aldrich’s great uncle and great aunt, Robert Pullen and Jeanie Streltzoff, wrote that Aldrich had been troubled throughout their life despite Aldrich’s grandparents’ best efforts to raise and protect their grandchild.
The letter from Aldrich’s relatives had more than a dozen bullet points describing Aldrich’s behavior, including Strelzhoff telling her husband she’d given Aldrich $30,000, “much of which went to his purchase of two 3D printers – on which he was making guns. One of which arrived at the house and was returned,” the uncle and aunt wrote. (Aldrich identifies as non-binary, according to court documents, but family members used he/him pronouns to describe them.)
The couple said in the 2021 letter that if Aldrich was released from custody at the time, Aldrich “would hurt or murder my brother and his wife.”
El Paso County District Attorney Michael Allen said his office prosecuted the case to the best of their ability but was ultimately forced to drop the charges after repeated attempts to subpoena members of Aldrich’s family.
The case was originally set to go to trial in May 2022 and rescheduled two months later, but Allen’s office was unable to serve subpoenas to the suspect’s family. Allen stated his office asked for the case to be continued but the defense objected.
Allen said the defense told the court at the time, his office had made some “valiant efforts” to serve the family subpoenas for their testimony but there was “no likelihood these people were going to show up” because they have “basically been avoiding everyone.”
The case was dismissed and later sealed on Aug. 11.
The government could find Bin Laden. The government will find you if you don’t pay taxes. The government will find you if you don’t pay a camera issued ticket for running a red light. The government could round up thousands of young men and ship them to Vietnam to kill people.
The government couldn’t find his family.
All five victims — whose ages ranged from 22 to 40 — of a Saturday night shooting rampage at Club Q, an LGBTQ+ nightclub in Colorado Springs, were identified at a Monday afternoon news conference.
Colorado Springs Police Chief Adrian Vasquez also named two patrons, Thomas James and Richard Fierro, who were in the bar when the shooting happened shortly before midnight and overcame the gunman before officers arrived at the scene.
Authorities called them heroes.
Heroes do not hang out in gay clubs. Hoes hang out in gay clubs.
As for the victims, Ashley Paugh, a 35-year-old wife and mother of an 11-year-old daughter, had driven from La Junta to Colorado Springs with a friend Saturday. They went to Club Q to see a comedian perform, her sister Stephanie Clark told The Gazette.
She was not a member of the LGBTQ+ community but had friends who were, Clark said.
Her husband, Kurt Paugh, said in a statement that she worked at Kids Crossing and had a “huge heart,” helping foster kids, including LGBTQ youths, find welcoming homes.
Raymond Green Vance, a 2018 graduate of Sand Creek High School, was at the club for the first time. He was with his girlfriend and others to celebrate a friend’s birthday, according to social media posts.
A family statement said he was “a kind, selfless young adult,” willing to go out of his way to help anyone. Vance had just gotten a job at Colorado Springs FedEx and “couldn’t wait to save enough money to get into his own apartment,” the statement said.
. . . . .
Kelly Loving, a 40-year-old trans woman from Denver, was visiting Colorado Springs for the weekend, her friend Natalee Skye Bingham told The New York Times, calling Loving a close friend who had at times been like a “trans mother” to her.
. . . . .
Co-workers spoke of two bartenders, Daniel Davis Aston and Derrick Rump, who were killed.
Aston, a transgender man who completed his transition in June, was remembered as being energetic, lively and helpful, Leia-Jhene Seals, a Club Q performer, said.
Rump was described by other employees as bubbly, full of smiles and someone who liked to crack jokes.
. . . . .
From his hospital bed, patron Barrett Hudson said during a Facebook Live post late Sunday that was shot seven times in the back at Club Q Saturday night.
Hudson said after he was hit by gunfire, he ran out the back doors and climbed up on a table to scale the back fence.
He made it to a nearby 7-Eleven, where people helped him.
“When they told me I had seven bullet holes in my back I thought I was dead,” Hudson said.
The bullets missed his organs, and he said he plans to leave Colorado to recover closer to family and friends in Charlotte, N.C.
“I really feel for the people that didn’t make it,” he said.
He also called for better security to protect members of the LGBTQ+ community.
“The hate comes after us more than other people,” he said.
The baby killers justify abortion by saying death is better than the life the child would live.
Death really was the best option for all five of these people.
