As in the past two years, the University of Utah will hold a Pride Pet Pageant during its Pride Week celebration this October.
The pageant will be held at 12:30 p.m. Oct. 9 on the Student Union Building’s plaza. Faculty, students, staff and members of the wider Utah community are invited to bring pets of all species to compete for such titles as Meanest Pet, Gender Bender, Celebrity Look-Alike, Best Pet Ally, Cutest Name and several others. In the playful spirit of the event, pets and their humans can also declare their love for each other with a commitment ceremony, and ceremonies between pets will also be performed.
In order for organizers to stock the appropriate number of water bowls and treats, participants are asked to RSVP at [email protected] For more information about Pride Week at the U, visit sa.utah.edu/lgbt.
