Last year’s inaugural Equality Utah celebration Celebration sold out to 270 guests weeks prior to the event, so local community members are advised to purchase tickets early. “This year, we are growing the event to make room for everyone who wants to come and celebrate,” Stay said. “Our purpose is to create a better, safer and kinder community for our LGBT friends, neighbors, parents and children.”
Equality Utah is the state’s largest advocacy and policy organization and works to secure equal rights and protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Utahns and their families.
