Review for Utah Pride Center, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Utah Pride Center has been the major driving force in recent years for LGBT equality in Utah. Their programs serve a wide range of people, from youth to adults, long-term political activists to newly "out" people seeking social connection. They host numerous community events, but especially the annual Utah Pride Celebration in early June. Center staff are compassionate and helpful, responsive on a wide variety of topics, articulate community representatives, and utterly professional. Simply put, the Utah Pride Center is the touching point from which all other LGBT issues in Utah radiate.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The surprising spirit of optimism and "can do" attitude found in such an oppressive and hostile state. Utah may be "reddest of the red states" but you would never know that from visiting the Center.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2007

Role:  Board Member & I oversaw the 2005 and 2006 Utah Pride Festivals.
