Listen to this article

Utah’s LGBTQ+ and drag communities mourn the loss of our sister, Salt Lake’s biggest problem child, Sarah Prollem, who departed this world suddenly Friday, October 21, 2022.

Sarah was the drag persona of Carter James Bryant, brought to life in the Spring of 2019 with the purpose to entertain people of all ages, inspire others to live unapologetically, and to be Carter’s creative outlet for his passion for art, beauty, and performance. Sarah’s brief life accentuated Carter’s best qualities: charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent.

Throughout Sarah’s life, she produced, choreographed, hosted, and performed in countless shows and benefit fundraisers all over the state of Utah and Colorado. In addition to her own weekly show at Milk+ every Friday night, she also hosted and performed for countless JRC Events alongside many talented local performers and contestants from the Emmy Award-winning show, RuPaul’s Drag Race. She founded her own dance troupe, Sarah Prollem and the Solutions, and held guest spots with many other local shows like Marrlo Suzzanne and the Galaxxy Band, Quorum of the Queens, and Wigs ‘N Brunch at WB’s Eatery. 

Sarah found passion through her annual fundraiser show, ‘Drag Me To Life,’ which raised thousands of dollars each year for DonorConnect, a non-profit organ donation service that played an integral part of Carter’s life after his mother became an angel to 5 individuals by donating her organs after passing at Carter’s birth. Sarah continued her mother’s legacy, becoming other people’s angel through organ donation.

Sarah is survived by her dad, sisters, extended family, her Salt Lake City drag family, and the many future pioneers of LGBTQ+ service, rights, and entertainment. Rest in Power and Peace, Sarah Prollem, and may the solutions you shared live in our hearts forever.
