About Co.

Luis J. Morteo

Founder of Co Dubuque and originally from Dubuque, seeks like minded individuals who share in the vision of connecting the LGBTQ+ communities and making them stronger. Luis’ experiences and passion around this work have been influenced by his time in Chicago, working in Fashion and visits to many LGBTQ+ communities through-out 46 U.S. States. He is back in Dubuque and is striving to re-establish a solid LGBTQ+ community in Dubuque, IA, where anyone can be safe, informed, and respected.
