Quinn Gallagher has been identified as the individual who was accompanying U.S. Representative Lauren Boebert when they were asked to leave a performance of “Beetlejuice” in Denver, Colorado, due to disruptive behavior.
Who Is Quinn Gallagher?
According to The New York Post, Gallagher was described as Boebert’s “apparent new beau.” The Daily Mail also reported that Boebert and the 46-year-old Gallagher had been in a secretive relationship for several months, a fact substantiated by video footage showing them holding hands. The Denver Post reported that Boebert, a Republican running for re-election, was escorted out of a Sunday night performance of the musical “Beetlejuice” in downtown Denver. Theater officials accused her of disruptive activities, including vaping, singing, recording, and causing disturbances.
The incident occurred at the City of Denver’s Buell Theatre, and surveillance footage, including graphic content, captured the presence of Boebert and Gallagher in the theater. In response to the incident, Boebert posted the following statement on her Facebook account:
“The past few days have been challenging and humbling, and I deeply regret the unwelcome attention that my actions on Sunday evening in Denver have brought to our community. Although my actions and words as a private citizen that night were not intended to be malicious or cause harm, I acknowledge that they did, and I am sorry for that. Navigating a public and difficult divorce, particularly over the past few months, has been a personal challenge for me and my family. I have endeavored to handle it with strength and grace to the best of my ability, but I recognize that on Sunday, I fell short of my own values. This is unacceptable, and I apologize.

Whether it was the excitement of attending a long-awaited production or the natural anxiety of being in a new environment, I genuinely did not recollect vaping that evening when I discussed the events of the night with my campaign team, while expressing my enthusiasm for the musical. Despite my beliefs, it is now evident that my recollection was inaccurate. It was never my intention or my campaign’s intention to deceive, but we are aware of how it may appear. We understand that rebuilding trust will require effort, and it may not happen overnight, but we are committed to doing so. I am profoundly grateful to those in the 3rd District who have supported me and reached out during this challenging week, offering grace and assistance when I needed it most. I have learned valuable lessons in these past few days, and I pledge to move forward in a manner that will make you proud.”
Boebert stated, “Indeed, I had an immensely enjoyable time watching the spectacular performance of Beetlejuice at the Buell Theatre. I readily admit to indulging in hearty laughter and singing with exuberance!” She went on to say, “I encourage everyone to seize the opportunity to watch it this week and kindly share your thoughts on how it concludes!”
