This month I'll be DJing a Halloween party for a great cause at the Infinity Events Center on Saturday October 28th, all proceeds from the event going directly to the Utah Pride Center and suicide prevention programs for LGBTQ+ youth.
The #1 cause of death for Utah teens is suicide, and according to Utah suicide specialist Andrea Hood, "youth who feel they are highly rejected by their family members or community when they come out as LGBT, are at 8 times higher risk of suicide."
Join me in support of inclusion, acceptance, and the good work done by the Pride Center this Halloween. Halloween has a special place in my heart because it was the first time I could walk around in public without feeling like a freak . . . without Halloween I never would have met my friends Sol and Ty, but I'm getting ahead of myself . . .
Here's more info about the event:
