    I don't like it there that much, but as far as acceptance goes they're really not that bad. GF and I go there once in a while to visit family and friends and it's been cool.

    We went to Utah last month and I was perusing the Salt Lake City guide that was in the hotel- wow, was that a defensive piece of writing! :-)

    But I've always felt bad for SLC. It's quite a cool city but gets a bad rap on account of it being in Utah. I'd still prefer to get a stronger beer when I visit, but it's a lovely city with great people.

    I lived in Southern Utah ages ago and thought it was beautiful. We're planning a trip to St George later this year to visit again. I know next to nothing about the culture there, but I'm looking forward to the trip.

    P.S. I am not a crackpot.

      OT, but look me up when you're in SLC and I will buy you and your girlfriend a drink.

      Coffee works too...Beans & Brews makes an awesome espresso float.

      I'd expect it to be full of retirees, though they say it's an exurb of Las Vegas by now.

      Funny story about SLC ... on a flight there a couple of years ago a clean cut-ish straight couple sat in the window and middle seats. They lived there, and I had assumed they were LDS, so was rather startled when they ordered not just a glass of wine each, but refills! The liquor store downtown was one jumping joint!

      I've mentioned elsewhere about another seatmate to SLC who was interested in genealogy (he was reading a book about his family's history), who in the course of our conversation mentioned his gay son as proof of the "diversity" in their modern day descendants.
