Gay Salt Lake City: Community and the spirit of rebellion


Salt Lake City is probably most known for its neighboring ski slopes and as the home of the Church of Latter Day Saint's largest temple, but Salt Lake City itself (unlike small town Utah) does not have a Mormon majority and seeks to broaden its appeal. There's a vibrant local gay community here with over 15,000 people attending pride last year, brought together in part by spirit of rebellion against the church's oppressively anti-gay dictates.
