The Utah Pride Center’s board, staff, and volunteers are grateful for the community’s long-lasting dedication and support of the Center’s charitable mission. While the ebb and flow of the Center’s past has been challenging, we are proud to say that the Pride Center has finally achieved a sense of positive normalcy and calm in our quest for collective impact. Thank you for believing in us. Thank you for not giving up on us. Thank you for standing with us yesterday and today.
While we will always remember the lessons of our past, we will not let our past define us. We stand before you today as a new and revitalized Center! We’ve spent countless hours conducting research, holding focus groups, and identifying industry-wide best practices to help make the Utah Pride Center the best it could possibly be. The result of this board-driven strategic initiative was the redefining of our “Vision for Success” and further clarifying the “Mission we embrace” to achieve our vision. You will see, throughout the following pages and our conversations that the Center- our community’s Center- is on the right path to making the world a better place. Because in one of the most conservative states in the Union, the LGBTQ+ community of Utah is alive and thriving!
The Utah Pride Center saves lives and has been doing so for the past 23 years. In fact, the Utah Pride center was recently (and beautifully) referred to as a “living, breathing oasis for our community”, and we couldn’t agree more! This oasis wouldn’t be possible without the community’s support. Thank you for keeping the Center alive and thriving.
