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

Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, It seems people have been raising a lot of questions about the Mormon faith lately and I'd like to address this matter. Look, it's important to ask the tough questions. Heck, ask away guys! Lol! However, instead of blogging, organizing rallies or marching in parades, just jot down your question on a piece of paper, wad it into a ball and stuff it in your mouth.
