RadioACTive's Connor Estes passes the mic to speakers at a recent rally against transphobia at the Utah State Capitol.

UAF Legacy Health opens its doors, offering "equity through wellness." 

  • UAF Legacy Health first began as Utah AIDS Foundation (UAF) in 1985 when the Utah Department of Health reported a total of 17 persons living with AIDS in Utah. At that time, the state and most citizens were unprepared to address HIV and AIDS. The need for public information and assistance for persons living with HIV/AIDS forced a community-based response, which ultimately became the Utah AIDS Foundation. UAF Legacy Health Clinic continues that tradition as Utah’s first community health center to provide expert clinical care to the LGBTQ+ and HIV community. 

Utah Film Center's Julie Gale shares details about this year's Tumbleweeds Film Festival for Kids, now free thanks to community sponsors.
