Huntsman Cancer Institute with the Beacon of Hope lit in rainbow coors

In celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride month in June, Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) will illuminate the Beacon of Hope in rainbow colors this weekend, highlight LGBTQ+ staff and caregivers on social media, and participate in the Utah Pride Parade on Sunday, June 2.   

The Beacon of Hope is visible each night across the Salt Lake valley to honor the contributions, humanity, and vision of Jon M. Huntsman and symbolize HCI’s goal to eradicate cancer from the face of the earth.

This weekend, the Beacon will be illuminated in rainbow colors as a symbol of HCI’s commitment to advance hope and healing for all affected by cancer, including our LGBTQ+ patients, friends, families, and community. Every day, our staff strives to create an environment where everyone who enters HCI feels safe, comfortable, and respected. We are proud to celebrate these values.
