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.

Well with everything settled down again, it’s time for reports! We had a successful venture at the LGBTQ Pride Festival a few weekends ago  Saturday and Sunday, June 4-5, 2011. Many folks stopped by our table and signed up for the newsletter and updates. A few people paid dues and became members, took information and all together enjoyed our presence. All of the newsletters we took (About 50) we’re gone on Saturday. A few folks even felt generous enough to put a few dollars in our donations can. All in all, it was a success! So now it’s back to the old routine of full moons and holidays, but not to worry, many events and activities are coming up this summer!

This December 1st 2010 brought UUPS the opportunity to work closely with the University of Utah LGBTQ Resource center to give time to the World Aids Day.  UUPS spent two hours tabling in the student union passing out information. We are proud to be allies with our LGBTQ friends and family members!  Although not enough hours, its a start to a working relationship for future volunteering opportunities with the LGBTQ Resource Center and other groups and organizations under the LGBTQ/AIDS Banner.

UUPS went to the Salt Lake PRIDE Festival and gave 6 hours of service to this years festival. Mainly on the clean up crew and beer stands, but that didn’t stop everyone from having a wonderful time, and getting a free t-shirt!
