Created in 2003 to reflect and celebrate our community’s diverse reality, Damn These Heels has challenged and entertained more than 18,000 people of all backgrounds through the expression and investigation of LGBT history, culture, ideas, struggles, and triumphs.

The only LGBT Film Festival in Utah, Damn These Heels is a safe, supportive environment that empowers historically marginalized LGBT voices and facilitates discussions crucial to inspiring positive social change. Building on the annual Festival’s momentum and impact, Utah Film Center holds free community Damn These Heels screenings year-round.
