On My Way Home ARG


Sep 5–Oct 31, 2022, 5:00 pm

It’s estimated that about 7% of youth in the United States are LGBTQ, while 40% of youth experiencing homelessness are LGBTQ, according to True Colors United.

Meet Xristy, one of the dozens of unaccompanied young adults experiencing homelessness in Utah. On My Way Home is the fictional story of one trans Latina's journey to coming to terms with her identity and home state. Along the way, she makes friends with the ghosts of some of Utah's greatest LGBTQ+ literary figures and learns the hidden history of queer survival and thriving in Utah.
