Salt Lake City’s hidden LGBT history documented in new bookBreaking News

The picture on the flier shows three smiling performers in bathing-suit-like strapless costumes adorned with a puff of tulle netting and elbow-length gloves. Long feathers protrude from the piles of their teased hair, and the text proclaims the act "Salt Lake City's most unusual show."
It might have been. The year was 1966, and the group known as The Missfits were men in drag performing at an old downtown establishment called the Tin Angel.
It's a rare slice of gay history and just one of the gems found in the new book "LGBT Salt Lake" by J. Seth Anderson.
