Will Terry from Equality Utah and Brent White from Milk+ talked about pride and the new bar and club that’s focused on the LGBTQ+ community.
Milk+ is a bar and club that welcomes all types of milk, whether you’re hot milk, spilled milk, le leche or coconut milk, everyone is accepted, and the space is provided for everyone’s self-expression, White said. Milk+ opened six months ago and is excited to celebrate its first pride. White said that Milk+ will be holding a pride kick-off event with a disco euphoria theme this Thursday that will last from June 2 through June 5.
Terry said that Thursday night’s event is being partnered with Equality Utah, the leading LGBTQ+ political advocacy group in Utah. The kick-off event will be hosted as a fundraiser for getting more pro-equality elected officials into office. Those going to the kick-off event can expect a performance from Lisa Barlow and Aquaria.

The concept of Milk+ was a long time coming – over 3 years ago the dream began with the acquisition of the building off 49 East and 900 South. After a brief pause due to the pandemic, things ramped up over the last 10 months and culminated in the Grand Opening in February 2022. Brent and co-owner Jeff Silchita wanted to create a safe top-of-the-line space for “every flavor of Milk.” A space that welcomed the LGBTQ community, where people could feel safe to be who they are and mingle with others in a brand new environment.
When asked about the inspiration Brent says “The name “Milk” was always the name I had in mind, the idea that we are all various types of milk.” The “+” sign was added to the name when the stars aligned and the building was secured off Harvey Milk Blvd.
