About the Event
Join the creative team of On My Way Home for a celebration of a new alternate reality game about Utah’s queer literary figures. On My Way Home follows Xristy, a recently unsheltered trans Latina on her journey to reconcile herself with her home and identity.
Along the way, she makes friends with the ghosts of some of Utah's greatest LGBTQ+ literary figures and learns the hidden history of queer survival and thriving in Utah.
Featuring Poetry by Willy Palomo, Nan Seymour, and Enan Whitby Puzzles by RJ Walker Art by Cass Webb Presentation by Connell O'Donovan

Follow Xristy on her quests and help her complete her tasks. As you solve puzzles and answer crucial questions, the story will begin to reveal itself to you.
