This winter, the Utah Pride Center will launch its empathy hot line, which will provide lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning individuals with resources, support and a listening ear. Currently, the Center is looking for volunteers age 18 and over for a number of tasks, including staffing the line and marketing. For more information contact Tiffanie Cole at 801-696-0074.
The Utah Pride Center is looking for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning Utahns who do not use tobacco products to participate in a photo shoot. The photos will be used in the Center’s new anti-tobacco campaign. This campaign will seek to educate members of the community about the health risks tobacco use poses to Americans of minority sexualities and gender identities. For more information about the shoot, contact Makeda Meeks at 801-539-8800 ex. 18 or [email protected].
Life is Grand in Genderland
Genderland, the Utah Pride Center’s group for transgender, genderqueer and gender variant youth and their allies, meets every Tuesday at the Utah Pride Center’s TINT youth center from 3–7 p.m. There, youth ages 14–20 can socialize, play games and listen to the occasional guest speaker among like-minded youth who, as the Center explains, “find typical gender boxes too restrictive.” The TINT is located on the Utah Pride Center’s campus at 361 N. 300 West.
