SLPS enjoyed a pleasant, hot day at Liberty Park at the 16th Annual Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day on Saturday, August 12, 2017. The day was clear, with a bright shining sun. President Cureton opened the festivities with a morning druid ritual to the Celtic sun god Lugh at 10am. Twenty five people gathered, hands were raised, and the drinking horn passed around in offering to open the wallets of customers, promote inclusivity, and all around good Pagan community.

A steady flow of patrons came through the park. SLPS read tarot and palms. It was very hot at points in the afternoon, and the food vendor failed to show, but frozen ice cones cooled those in the park. About twenty five vendors showed from across Utah and Montana. Raven Digitalis was present signing his newly released booked Esoteric Empathy: A Magickal and Metaphysical Guide to Sensitivity. He led the closing right, an alchemical ceremony to Baphomet at 5pm.

SLPS attended the annual Utah Pride Festival put on by the Utah Pride Center. The annual fundraiser run this year from Wednesday, May 31-Sunday, June 4 with the opening of the festival Friday June 2. SLPS has been reading tarot at the festival since 2012 but has been vending at the festival since 2011. This year was as busy as others, with over 150 people getting tarot and palm readings. This year’s festival theme was “Pride Elevated.” Many different vendors attended, as well as food vendors. There was the Gala on May 31, the interfaith service on June 1, with the opening on Friday there was more opportunity for varied entertainment, drag queen story time, panels, and even protesters out at the festival gates. Known as the “official street preachers”, these people see themselves as old bible prophets preaching to a sinful world.

SLPS even sold some of its literary journal! Pride always treats us well, and we are glad to give back to the community.

SLPS enjoyed a fun weekend at the 14th Annual Salt Lake City International Tattoo Convention. Vending on Saturday, March 11 and Sunday, March 12, many people came to get tattoo tarot readings a buy a few copies of Vol 1 of Enheduanna. President Daniel Cureton and Vice President Ashton Longhurst enjoyed meeting new clients, with some of previous years returning. The hum of tattoo machines buzzed through the day, with the various competitions being announced and photos for the 2017 year book being snapped. Vendors from across the country as well as outside the USA were present (Seoul Ink from Seoul, South Korea). A very interesting tap tattoo vendor came to the convention which attracted much attention from crowds.

The 6th annual Moab Pride festival took place on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at the Multicultural Center in Moab, UT. SLPS attended the 2015 festival and enjoyed Moab, so we decided to go back to support the community. Breakfast was at the Moab Dinner. This year’s festival was smaller, later in the day, with fewer visitors and participants. The festival still enjoyed large crowds, entertainment, and good food. SLPS did about 20 tarot and palm readings, receiving the blessings of Perun who stood quietly by on his altar. A cemetery set up for day of the dead had names of the Orlando victims, murdered LGBT citizens, and others who have passed on, evoking education about the gay bashings, youth suicide, trans murders, and the shootings in Florida.

Sunday afternoon allowed the SLPS to return to Love Muffin Cafe for breakfast before site seeing. After breakfast, SLPS visited some of the beautiful areas surrounding Moab- The Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park! Canyonlands is full of canyons carved by water and the weather over many eons. Pinyon Pine trees sit in view, shedding their nuts every fall among red rock and millions of years of geology. What magnificent landscapes Utah has in its deserts!
