Gay Ski Week is well underway in Aspen. The annual event features skiing, parties, comedy and film but it’s not just about fun. There’s an underlying emphasis on advocating for LGBTQ causes.

The non-profit that runs Gay Ski Week, Aspen Out, raises money for groups like the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen spoke with Robin Wood-Mason, Deputy Director of the Foundation and Kevin McManamon, President of Aspen Out.
