The Utah Pride Center understands health disparities are unjust and preventable. Our vision is to build individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support, and advocacy. At the Utah Pride Center, we have designed our community health efforts to be inclusive to all.

The Utah Pride Center utilized Community Health Workers, our frontline public health ambassadors, and health educators, to support and empower members of the LGBTQIA+ community with the following:

  • Navigation of mental and medical health services and resources
  • Assistance with finding and applying for culturally appropriate social services
  • Access to medical vaccinations (HIV, COVID, etc.)
  • Weekly insurance benefits and coverage assistance (Take Care Utah)
  • Setting and achieving health goals
  • Monthly legal aid and support (Rainbow Law Clinic)
  • Gender affirming peer connection and support
  • Serve as a liaison to help improve cultural competence of services and provide feedback
  • UPCOMING! Food and Clothing Support

Our community health workers serve as a bridge between our community, healthcare systems, and state/local health departments and want to work with you! If you need support or guidance around community health resources, please reach out to the Utah Pride Center's Community Health Workers.

A Community Health Worker is not a Case Manager. Our CHW’s comes from, live in, and have shared background, barriers, and experiences with the individuals and communities we serve. Our CHW's are trusted voices within the LGBTQIA+ Utah Community and want to empower and support you!

The Pastor is In...
April 16, 2024 06:00 pm - 08:00 pm

Chat with SLC's favorite LGBTQ+ affirming pastor, Pastor Curtis on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Utah Pride Center (1380 S. Main Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84115).

"I’ve come out. The church I grew up in rejects me on the basis of my gender or sexual identity. So what do I do with my faith?" This question often gets lost in the struggle to come to terms with one’s sexual and gender identity. For many it is given to them as a choice between two options, either I am a person of faith or I am true to who I know myself to be. But it seems more complex than that. Sometimes people are angry at God. Sometimes people want nothing to do with a church but still have a faith in God that is important to them. Sometimes, people don’t know what to do with the sincere faith of their childhood that now seems to not have any room for them.

I am here to talk with you about that. To listen mostly, but to affirm who you are; to tell you that God loves you just the way you are; to apologize for the hurt that has been perpetrated in the name of God; to repent; to pray; and to be someone who encourages you to not let them take the faith that is rightfully yours and to help you hold on to the good stuff and let go of that which is harmful. So lets talk. I am here on the first and third Tuesdays from around 6 pm to about 8 pm or call/text me and we can set up an appointment to talk.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Curtis
