Every city this time of year needs a good social ball to get the season going. Salt Lake City, staying true to the “ab-norm,” is no exception.
The Gaybutante Ball, thrown by The University of Utah’s Queer Student Union, comes at the end of “Allies Week,” five days of fetes, discussions, films and events designed to help gay, transgender and straight students with a more accommodating and safe learning environment. This year’s theme “Magnificent Creatures” promises to be the best party in its seven years of existence.
Usually held on campus, it’s moving this year to the Gallivan Center so the broader community can come together regardless of sexual orientation or relationship to the ever-evolvingand openly welcoming world of the LGBT community. Performances will feature the Salt City Kings, Avenue and the Slippery Kittens. Due to the content of some performances, the party is for people age 18 and over. RSVP is required at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gaybutante Ball @ Gallivan Center, 239 S. Main, Friday, April 24, 8-11 p.m. $5 donation suggested.
