Tony’s Gay Agenda

Newly added events …


Over 200 artists and 30 musical acts, including The Naked Waiters … hmmm, will attend the fabulous Park City Arts Festival this year. If so inclined come say hey as I will be at The No Name Saloon all weekend long.

Pride(ful) festivities are still in full swing in Ogden, Farmington, Torrey and Brian Head … just checking if you’re paying attention. Too soon though?

“Those Bitches” at Try-Angles, and there are shit-ton of them by the way, will put on two drag shows at the Harvey Milk Summer Fest. Also, the members of the Salt Lake Men’s choir will be dunked, raising funds for singing lessons. Never too soon.

The Rose is going full frontal yet again on “fake” anatomy … still paying attention? Resident companies explore fake news, mass hysteria and apocalyptic events, much like Trump’s inauguration. Also, Betty White and Bea Arthur will reprise their roles of Chicken Little and Turkey Lurkey. Too soon?
