All-inclusive Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time of family gathering – but what about those who aren’t welcome in their own family?

For Utahans alienated by their sexuality this Thanksgiving, the Utah Pride Center will host a Thanksgiving dinner for the local LGBTQ community. The Center is a Salt Lake organization that according to their website “provides support, education, outreach and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer individuals and their allies, through programs, services and resources,”

The event, all-inclusive and free to the public, will include a meal, games and movies. The meal will be served from 1-3 p.m.

The Center depends on community support to provide the event every year, and attendees are encouraged to volunteer or bring food.  The Center asks that homemade food items be cooked at home and brought to the event rather that cooked on-site.Drop food off between 12:30 and 1 p.m.

RSVP by e-mailingto let the Center know how much food they need to provide. Contact the same e-mail address to sign up to volunteer, donate, or inform the Center of what kind of food you will bring.
