Utah Pride Center cuts hours, reopens CyberCenter

In a post on its Facebook page, the Utah Pride Center has announced that it cut its hours by over 57 percent, effective yesterday.

The Center will now be open Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

At one point, the Center was open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays.

Since its move to the Fourth South building, the organization has suffered financial issues. Center leaders will be releasing a “state of the Center” later this week.

A grand re-opening of the CyberCenter is scheduled for tonight from 5 to 7 p.m. with light appetizers. The CyberCenter was funded by the David Bohnett Foundation and includes free access to four computer workstations and a printer, along with an internet connection.

Bohnett was the founder of GeoCities, which he sold to Yahoo! in 1999. His foundation focuses on LGBT issues, animal language research, gun violence prevention and voter education. The foundation has disbursed over $3 million to create 61 CyberCenters nationwide.
