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 PressBackers.com, 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.

Miss City Weekly 2012: Willard

Following the nádleehí people in the Navajo tradition, identifying as a “third man”( an integrated gender person/ a male with female essence). Born biologically expressive as a male, the feminine balance has always been a component of my personal identity. Believing in the non-binary constellation of gender identity/expression/diversity, I use aesthetic display as a means of creative communication, performance as an education tool. Operating on a low-income and an affinity towards the pervy, eye-catching and thought provoking, my aesthetic reflects the kitschy, crafty and all things tacky or strange. Maintaining my young, self-absorbed awareness of the fashion world and music television, translating to a stage identity emulating America’s sweethearts, and the culturally refused (a versus: Mandy Moore meets Marilyn Manson meets pre-Bobby Whitney Houston meets the-stuffed-animal-under-your-bed). Wanting to communicate and express the endless opportunities a change in belief about personal identity can bring. Resting on the strong feminine shoulders of those before and my two legs (that are about a week long), I hope to show Salt Lake City an entertaining performance and a sincere request to take a personal inventory of how you identify yourself.
