"Many individuals struggle to fit the prescribed way of life that often permeates our Utah County culture. For those that walk to the beat of a different drum, an ultra-conservative environment is frequently prone to judgment, shame, misunderstanding, and, as result, isolation of so many fantastic individuals with much to offer our community.
This event will allow people to express their voices through any artistic medium with the expectation that others can feel what life looks like from their perspective, fostering an environment of tolerance, love, and empathy.
Tell your story (or have someone read it anonymously in your behalf).
Read a poem.
Paint a picture.
Snap a photograph.
Sing an original song.
Whatever medium you choose—express yourself and help us UNDERSTAND."
