In a grand finale to Pride Week at the U, Sky Cubacub hosts a performance of her clothing creations, Rebirth Garments Fashion Performance and Talk-Back. She is the founder and designer of a line of gender-nonconforming wearables for people on the full spectrum of gender, size and ability. Cubacub's designs are guided by the assertion that trans communities and people with disabilities have very particular clothing needs.

There's been a lot of activity around homelessness lately—"Operation Diversion" to arrest and sometimes treat drug offenders at local shelters, for instance. So, it's pretty timely that the Department of Workforce Services is sponsoring a Homeless Summit to explore housing, supportive services and workable solutions. You'll hear about the "state of homelessness" from Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox, and learn about efforts to move the homeless into housing. Local leaders can coordinate resources and strengthen partnerships, as well as get up to date on ever-changing funding requirements.

We don't usually think of Utah as a seafood destination, but here's a chance for Salt Lake City to become the first sustainable seafood city in the United States. The Global High Seas Marine Preserve is holding a panel discussion, "Saving the Oceans One City at a Time," about banning industrial fishing in international waters and educating consumers about purchasing seafood products from sustainable sources. GHSMP was founded by local attorney and author Danny Quintana, whose book, titled Space & Ocean Exploration: The Alternative to the Military-Industrial Complex, inspired this movement.
