The New Utah Podcast is coming at you drenched in glitter and wrapped in a burrito this week!!
Utah has TOO many awesome events going on this weekend. Ok, never mind, there is no such thing as TOO many…
The 8th annual Craft Lake City is at the Gallivan Center this weekend. It starts on Friday the 12th at 5pm and runs until Sunday 14th. This is a great opportunity to see over 200 stellar local artists, musicians, and foodies that live and create in Utah.
Another great event featuring the talent of Utah and will get you out of town. Head up to main street in Park City and partake in the Kimball Arts festival. Held as a fundraiser for the Kimball Arts center, this event also features local artists, musicians, and chefs AND… and a beer garden. Need we say more? Yes, we must say more. We say do one day in Salt Lake and then head up to Park City for the other! Whatever you chose, just get your Utah’s Own on this weekend!
Or if you want something more low-key on Sunday from 9-3pm (so Craft Lake City on Friday, Kimball Arts Festival Saturday, and the Urban Flea Market) you can hit up the once-a-month Urban Flea Market at 6th South and Main Street in Salt Lake City that features over 80 vintage vendors. This month features Utah’s Own, Harry-It Winston, and her retro tupperware party!
This week TNUP had the honor of interviewing Utah’s premier gender illusionist, Indi Skies. A native to Utah, Indi has made her name in the drag and LGBT community over the last 6+ years. Indi has recently taken over the promotions hat at Club Jam in downtown Salt Lake and is starting “Frigay.” Come on, you know you want to say it… Friiiigay…
Indi’s involvement in the Utah LBGT community started with but has not been limited to, reigning as Princess in the Royal Court of the Golden Spike Empire, representing Utah in a national pageant, a founder of the Ladies of Marmalade, and you can catch her once a month at Salt Lake City’s award winning Drag Brunch! You can have one of those omelettes that Chris is always talking about AND watch Indi perform!
Indi is so eloquently spoken. Touching on having vision in life and with her character, the importance of genuine relationships, and what it takes to get ready for a show! And listen to where Indi would tell someone that is visiting Utah that they must go to before leaving Utah!
Moody or not, we love the passion and pain that is put into this entertainment!
“When a straight man puts on a dress and gets his sexual kicks, he is a transvestite. When a man is a woman trapped in a man’s body and has a little operation he is a Transsexual. When a gay man has way too much fashion sense for one gender he is a drag queen.” –Noxema Jackson, To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.
