The Utah Trans Pride Festival goes virtual

Good Things Utah

The Utah Trans Pride Festival is happening virtually this year, and President of Genderbands, Ian Giles, joined us to share how that will work and what you can expect at this year’s festival. They tell us that Genderbands is an international non-profit that helps trans people pay for their transitions through their wonderful surgery grants, binder program, support gatherings, and so much more.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Utah Trans Pride Festival was moved to an online event this year. There is a variety of both in and out of state talent, musicians, educational presentation, speakers, resource information, and a drag show to kick things off the night before!

Genderbands puts the spotlight on trans people, celebrating them, and making sure the T is remembered, and valued in the LGBTQ community.

Join the celebration on August 15th! For more, visit or email Genderbands directly.
