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. DONATE

Countdown to Pride | Stock Up on Mylar!



Ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod, it's here already!?! You better believe it, sweetcakes: Pride is upon us. 

It's next weekend, June 5-7, as a matter of fact. The Running of the Gays is on Sunday, June 7. Since the festival is organized by farmers or roosters or milkmen or something, the parade is always eaaarrrllly in the morning for some reason, so don't stay out too late Saturday night or you'll miss it!

And, for those who haven't decorated their floats yet (you know who you are!), better stock up on tissue paper and mylar now before the queens clean out the city! Don't forget, Zim's is no longer an option for last-minute craft supplies, so you'll either have to go to Zurcher's or spend about $10,000 per yard at Modern Display. Better yet, there must be some industrial-type bulk mylar supplier on 300 West or thereabouts, out there with the ceramic tile, neon and plastic fabrication shops. Let me know if you have a bulk mylar connection!!! I'll post it here.

Don't forget to bring a present for Moses Bejesus or Muffuletta Bethlehem or whatever the fuck the leader of those street preachers is pretending to call himself these days!
