Somewhere in rumor-mill-land, word got out that angry gay protesters would besiege Mormons trying to enjoy some fine spring prophesy on LDS conference weekend April 14-15. In reality-land, however, the LGBT community is creating service projects this weekend, to which all are invited.

General Service Weekend
Saturday, April 11 & Sunday, April 12 (pushed back one week)

The LGBT community, through its All for One Initiative, has a smorgasbord of service opportunities lined up for anyone ready to shake off their winter apathy and get out and do some volunteering. Projects range from building a handicap-access ramp for the Weber Housing Authority, clean-ups at Salt Lake Valley parks and visiting refugee families to evaluate needs.

Utah Pride Center, 361 S. 300 West, Salt Lake City, Saturday, April 4, 10 a.m. and Sunday, April 5, 10 a.m.; Unitarian Church, 705 23rd St., Ogden, Saturday, April 4, 10 a.m. & Sunday, April 5, 10 a.m.; AllForOneInitiative.org

Blue Gold: World Water Wars
Monday, April 6

The Salt Lake Film Center is screening the documentary Blue Gold, one of those movies that will provoke the hell out of your thoughts about the water that covers two-thirds of our planet. The film examines how corporate water imperialism is setting up the oft-overlooked resource as a prize for which nations in the future may wage the next World War over. The film is free and open to the public—and it does not star Kevin Costner.

Salt Lake City Main Library auditorium, 210 E. 400 South, April 6, 7 p.m. For more info, contact the SLC Film Center at info@slcfilmcenter.org at phone 801-746-7000
