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

Noir: A Black and White Ball

Saturday, Dec. 12



Founded in 1976, the Salt Lake City chapter of the Royal Court of the Golden Spike Empire is the longest-standing gay and lesbian nonprofit fundraising organization in Utah. This unique community group raises funds for cancer and AIDS awareness, and its annual Black and White Ball specifically celebrates its PWA Christmas Fund.

The fund’s aim is to gift $100 or more to as many people as possible to make a brighter season for those living with HIV/AIDS. Although the first image that may pop into your mind when you initially hear about the R.C.G.S.E. is one of a group of drag queens throwing a perennial party—and believe it, they do know how to party—remember that it is also an organization with a remarkable record of taking care of Utahns in need.

Noir: A Black and White Ball @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, 138 W. 300 South, Saturday, Dec. 12, 6-10 p.m., 801- 355-ARTS,
