$10 for 10 in ’10
Statewide gay and transgender rights group Equality Utah wants to see gay and transgender-inclusive housing and employment ordinances pass in at least 10 Utah municipalities this year. To reach this goal, the staff is asking for donations of $10 from gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Utahns and their allies, which can be made at equalityutah.org.
