The Advocate’s 8th Gayest City for 2014: Oakland, California

Salt Lake City, UtahWhile some jaws dropped when this city was named No. 1 a couple of years ago, SLC’s queer citizens knew we were on to something.

There are plenty of sporty gay and lesbian ski bunnies, more than half a dozen bars and clubs — including Club Try-Angles ( and the enduring ladies’ spot Paper Moon ( — and a popular annual Gay Pride celebration that last year drew some family members of Mormon LGBTs marching in support of their kids, siblings, and parents.

Utah’s capital does not have a Mormon majority, unlike the rest of the state, and increased scrutiny of the church following its support of the antigay Prop 8 is forcing some overtures toward queer acceptance.
