Center Launches Pride in Pink Parties for Professionals

With last month’s first ‘Pride in Pink’ party at Gastronomy’s Market Street Oyster Bar, the Utah Pride Center launched a new seasonal event for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender working professionals and their straight allies to meet, mingle and network.

“We’ve been looking for adult programming opportunities for people in the working world, and the Pride in Pink party is what we’ve created,” said Marina Gomberg, the Center’s Membership & Public Relations Director.
The first Pink party was held Nov. 14 at the Market Street Oyster Bar, which co-sponsored the event. The restaurant provided complimentary food and $3 drinks. The evening also included a business card raffle for a gift basket, donated by Mountain Side Mortgage. The suggested donation at the door is $5.
Gomberg said that approximately 100 attended the inaugural party, and she hopes more will attend the second, which she hopes to schedule “between January and March.”
“Working with Gastronomy was so great,” she said. “I hope we can work with them again.”
