Out of the Smoke, the Utah Pride Center’s anti-tobacco group, is inviting young people, according to the center, "to dust off their spandex, find their capes and get ready to take a stand against Big Tobacco in honor of Kick Butts Day."
Out of the Smoke invites those between the ages 14 to 20 to a free super hero-themed costume party with food, dancing, a photo booth and prizes.
"The Tobacco Industry has bullied the LGBTQ community for decades. Whether they are leading a marketing effort called Project SCUM, directed at addicting young gay and lesbian people to tobacco, to fighting against equal rights at the legislative level, they are targeting us," says Gabe Glissmeyer, Out of the Smoke spokesman, in a press release. "This party is your chance to have fun while letting Big Tobacco know that our community is made up of super heroes who aren’t buying the death wish that they are selling."
The party will take place on Friday, March 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Utah Pride Center (361 N 300 W in Salt Lake City).
Super hero costumes are encouraged.
