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.

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!

SLPS celebrated Mabon in Big Cottonwood Canyon Saturday, September 24, 2016, under the shade of an oak and the watchful eyes of the land spirits and ancestors of the mountains. Cernunnos was honored with wine, acorns, lavender sage, and apples. Poetry was read, and the members listened to “Mabon” from the album Cycle of the Seasons by Lisa Thiel. The setting sun created a magical atmosphere in which Cernunnos emerged from the forest to bless those present. Natural oak wands added the right touch to the fall season.

The after Mabon feast was tacos at El Farol restaurant in Midvale. Egyptian tarot readings gave everyone guidance for the dark times ahead.

The 41st Annual Utah Pride Festival took place over the weekend of June 3-5, 2016. The Festival opened with prayer at the Utah Pride Interfaith Coalition Interfaith Service on Thursday, June 2 at First Baptist Church. Pride this year included the usual music, vendors, food, rallies, and parade.

SLPS has been participating with a booth at Pride since 2011. The first tarot readings were in 2012, which were free. In 2014, SLPS started charging $5 and uped it to $10 in 2015. This year’s booth was highly successful, bringing in a good income from the society as the annual fundraiser that sets the budget. Over 100 readings were done, many of which were palm readings.

Many companies and organizations participated, including Discover, Netflix, Vegan Leather Boundary, Utah Gay Rodeo Association, the City Library, and the Animal Shelter. Some great and diverse food vendors came including funnel cakes, pizza, Greek, Jamaican, Skewered Thai, Poutine Fries, and Sweet Roasted Corn.

Sunday was the busy day. SLPS marched in the parade with the interfaith in front of the rainbow flag. President Daniel Cureton was asked to bless the flag this year, uttering the following prayer “Father Sky, Firm Earth, let this rainbow shine and open people’s pockets deep and fill her up! So mote it be!” Money thrown into the flag goes to the Utah Pride Center.

Tens of thousands people lined up on 200 S. to watch the parade. The route was reversed this year, with the floats, all 153 entries lining up along 200 W and the Salt Palace and ending at 400 E. A dozen or so protesters were seen, but they were in the minority.

The trees around the city and county building were certainly happy about the festival. President Cureton was walking by an old sycamore when he felt how happy the tree was for the people. “The tree was smiling and looking around, just so happy to be giving its shade to people in the hot sun. It seemed they are lonely there, as its a government building, and they just want to connect with the people around them and provide for them. I think it’s nice then that the area is used for festivals so that the trees feel like they are being useful, giving of their resources like shade and comfort.”

Sunday was the very busy, with the festival squeezed to the brim! The Pride Center reported over 50,000 people attended the festival and 50,000 attended the parade over the weekend!

SLPS attended the World Horror Convention 2016 at the Provo Marriott Hotel. It was held April 28-May 1, 2016. Daniel Cureton went down to read horror tarot readings in the dealer room and participate on various panels. “It was slow, but a good convention. People from out of state and Canada.” said president Cureton. Many authors like Paul Genesse, David Farland, David J. West, and Kevin J. Anderson and others were there doing panels and selling their books. With the panels, there were gaming times, short films, an art show, and other activities. Some of the vendors included Gypsy Moon Emporium of Salt Lake, the League of Utah Writers, Zombie Nation, Pioneer Books of Provo, and Barnes and Noble.
