In a plan to reach out to Utahns ages 21-40, the Utah Pride Center is launching a new program with yearlong social events and activities. The new program, UP365, or Utah Pride 365, will host monthly socials to reach the age group that was missing from Utah Pride Center programming, said the Center’s Executive Director Valerie Larabee, in a press release.
UP365 events kick off in May and will include food, drinks, live entertainment and more. Anyone is welcome to attend, as the events are designed to target the community at large.
“For many years UPC has recognized a gap in the availability of healthy community programs for young adults. We are thrilled with the future that can be exacted by engaging these young people through a spirit of service, responsibility and fun,” Larabee said.
This program is the first efforts of the Center’s Jr. Board — a group of 16 men and women who are helping to fill the void in the Center’s programming for young adults. Utah Pride’s Jr. Board is an all-volunteer committee chartered by the Utah Pride Center. It works to develop and empower young queer people and their allies.
