Art270 Gallery's "Transmission" Series Supports DTH

Damn These Heels supporter Terrance K Stephens opened up his beautiful Art270 Gallery on Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City this past Saturday evening for "Transmission." The show focuses on members of the trans community, their backstories, and celebrates how they are seen in the society after transitioning. Saturday evening's attendees were treated to a special screening of the short film Pink Boy, which premiered at the 2016 Festival, along with a special drag performance by Indi Skies and London of the Beauties on Broadway.

Funds from Saturday's event support the screening of five youth-approved films at the 2017 Damn These Heels LGBTQ Film Festival presented in partnership with the Utah Pride's Youth Activity Center. This youth component is new to this year's Festival and includes a $10 Youth-Only Festival Pass available to youth ages 14-18. If you missed out on the fun and want to be included next time, make sure to buy your DTH Festival Pass today. We like to throw parties almost as much as we like to show films!
