Queering Salt Lake Photo Adventure

Salt Lake City: It’s time to explore, pose, and smile! (and win!)

Gather your friends and join Utah Film Center for a self-guided photo adventure around Salt Lake City. Visit beautiful murals and gay-friendly spots around town that embody inclusion, creativity or just fill the community with pride. Snap photos and turn them in for a chance to win some fabulous prizes!

  2. Review the locations and landmarks around Salt Lake City 
  3. Pick up a Damn These Heels banner at one of the first two locations listed! Display the banner in your photos somehow.
