Located on the south eastern shore of the Great Salt Lake, Salt Lake City or SLC as it is also known is probably best known as the seat of the Mormon church. The city was actually first established by the Mormon leader Brigham Young & is today also known as a very popular ski resort since hosting the Winter Olympics back in 2002.

“Mormons invented themselves just as other religious & ethnic groups invented themselves. But Mormons did so in such a singularly impressive way that we will probably always remain baffled as to how exactly it happened.”

― Laurence Moore

“Growing up in a Jewish matriarchal world inside the patriarchal paradise of Salt Lake City, Utah, gave me increased perspective on gender issues, as it also did my gay brother & my lesbian sister. Our younger sister is the perfect Jewish-American wife & mother & is fiercely proud of that fact.”

– Roseanne Barr
