The Utah Pride Center is now accepting nominations for the 2022 Dr. Kristen Ries Community Service Award.
Established in 1987, this award was first presented to Dr. Kristen Ries for her humanitarian efforts in dealing with the AIDS crisis and forever named in her honor. This award recognizes outstanding service to the greater lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in Utah, and is given to individuals who are dedicated to continuing that legacy of service. Those who receive this award are role models for Utah’s LGBTQ+ community and, like Dr. Kristen Ries, “exemplify everything that the award has stood for: compassion, leadership, and courage.”
The deadline for nominations is March 31, 2022.
