Every year the Allies Dinner for Equality Utah just gets larger and larger. More and more people come out in support of equality for the LGBT community. This year the keynote speaker was former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman. He was there to show support for equality, including marriage equality which is huge news for a former Republican presidential candidate. It was a truly moving keynote address that was held in the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.
Here are a few of my favorite photographs—they are not in chronological order. You can see, and purchase, photos from the entire event on my SmugMug gallery.
Brandie Balken has been the director for Equality Utah for the past few years and she has done an amazing job. She has helped a number of cities enact nondiscrimination ordinances in the state of Utah.
I love photographed details at events. Name badges, signs, decorations, food, music, anything that shows the atmosphere of the event.
