Kissing Qualms 

Some called it porn. What did you think of last week’s City Weekly cover depicting two men kissing?

Some called it porn. What did you think of last week’s City Weekly cover depicting two men kissing?

Alissa Dimick: If you thought our cover last week was porn, then you obviously haven’t seen porn. That cover made my heart soar!

Scott Renshaw: I showed it to my 14-year-old son, and he responded, “Awwww!” So congratulations to all those who had a less mature response than a teenage boy.

Paula Saltas: I’m straight. I liked it. I want my husband to kiss me that way, so I’m jealous.

Paydn Augustine: I felt it was one of the most impacting and progressive steps in years for the media here in the Salt Lake Valley. It was really incredible to see how crazy and riled it got people over something as simple as a kissing couple. I’ve seen far worse “pornography” on Faux News.

Derek Carlisle: I think he’s way too old for that guy and if he keeps wearing those oversize sweatshirts, their marriage doesn’t stand a chance.

Stephen Dark: How an unabashed liplock between adults can make the world disappear and give breath and life to the glories of love.

Colin Wolf: By far the gayest thing City Weekly has ever done. It was pretty gay.

Susan Kruithof: I call the cover moving. Having taken for granted the fact that I can get married, no questions asked, I’ve never really thought about how hurtful and damaging it must be to be denied such a basic right. It’s a social freedom that should  be granted to any person, plain and simple.
