LGBTQ Events

Here in Salt Lake, LGBTQ events are a critical part of our city's unique and vibrant culture. Our diverse queer community recognizes that LGBTQ people are not a monolithic group, and whether you're trans, gay, lesbian, fluid, or somewhere in between, there is certainly something for you. Salt Lake City Pride - normally held in June - acts as the pillar for gay events in our city, and attracts visitors from all over. But that's certainly not the only noteworthy experience. Throughout the year, we have queer film festivals, drag shows, events for queer youth and so much more. Scroll down for a list of events currently scheduled. If you have an event in Salt Lake that we don't know about, we want to get to know you.
