We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

The Park That Dare Not Speak Its Name



[image-x] Seems that Fairmont Park, that infamous swampy stretch in Sugar House near I-80 where 20-something gays go to hook up, is getting a makeover in these trying economic times.

Planners feel that a dog-walking park will be just the thing to keep those randy young men in check. Apparently, they didn't realize that gays have dogs, so the plan may actually backfire, providing even more amorous opportunities for likeminded dog-lovers.

(Proposals to upgrade the park by installing an outdoor disco, a hedge maze and padded glory holes were, apparently, rejected.)

Surely the dog park will spell the end to gay park cruising everywhere, once and for all--the previous kajillion attempts to do so were just warm-ups. This time it's going to work! Protect the children!
