If you could host Dan Savage for a few days in lovely SLC, where would you take him?

n

Jeff Reese: I would make sure he came during Gay Pride, so that he could see Utah doesn’t mean “Mormon” and “closed-minded.” I would also give him a tour of some of my favorite dance clubs.

n n

Jackie Briggs: I would take that fool skiing. I mean, who wants to ski in Colorado?

n n

Derek Jones: The Fourteenth Street Gym, it will be quite the shock for him here in Salt Lake City.

n n

Kathy Mueller: I would take him to my dungeon … can you say, “Yes, Mistress Kathy”?

n

Bryan Bale: I see his original call to boycott Utah as reactionary; he was recently a guest on The Colbert Report, and though he denounced the LDS Church for its support of California’s Proposition 8, he didn’t repeat his call for a boycott. I hope he’s aware now of the GLBT community here. If not, spending some time at Paper Moon and Trapp Door might open his eyes.

n n

Ted Scheffler: I’d take Dan down to Sundance, as a reminder that the Sundance Film Festival—which he wants to boycott—has been a perennial home for gay cinema in this country.

n n

Paula Saltas: Bikini Cuts, just to annoy the hell out of him.

n n

Annie Quan: Temple Square, so he could see his real adversaries and that not everyone in Salt Lake City is Mormon.

n n

Chelsie Booker: I’d take him to that pretty granite castle down the street—I hear they’re quite welcoming around those parts, if you’ve got a special member’s-only card, of course … and preferably are a h8ter. Other than that, love and eternal happiness all around!

n n

Cesar Guzman: I would take him for sushi at Takashi, dancing at The Trapp door, and then show him the beautiful fourth-floor view from my bedroom.
n

n

Jamie Gadette: I’d love to take him to Takashi and have a nice civilized conversation. I’d like to think we might find common ground away from the bitter killing fields, er, comment boards.

Bryan Mannos: John Saltas’ house. His pulled-pork and squid stew would make everything clear ...
