The Salt Lake Tribune’s 2012 “Utahns of the Year”
From the Tribune article by Peggy Fletcher Stack:

Still, their simple yet potent gesture echoed around the globe, setting an example for fellow believers who then took up the style, if not the name, in 15 other Pride parades. They also attracted national and international media attention, well-known enough even for spoofing in the satirical magazine The Onion.
