Hi MSFOOM,

It is in Daybreak (South Jordan) but you don't have to live here, you just need an invite. If you are on Facebook search for "Daybreak Wine Club" and ask to be in the group, if you have trouble hit me up here via email.

It isn't tasting but more of a party, we had a music jam last month. It is a great way to meet people here.

Except the OP would be traveling the opposite direction of most cars during the commute, if he's going to live in Salt Lake and commute down to Lehi. However, it's still quite a lengthy 40-minute commute, at least for Salt Lake standards.

SLC just passed a city ordinance that made it illegal to discriminate towards gays in housing and employment. I know that seems pretty basic elsewhere in the U.S. (especially in Seattle) but that's pretty big for Utah.

You'll be fine.

...and it had the blessing of the LDS church which means that most people who would've struggled to accept gays now have to either accept or seem like they are rebelling against church leaders.

I heard about a story not too long ago where 2 gay men were thrown out of Temple Square for being publically affectionate.

That was a few months back, public protests were held, and it was before the Church's statement of support. Temple Square is private property, you know, property of the LDS Church. It's open to the public but under their rules as any property-owner has the right to do. Why it is private property is another discussion, not for this thread.

Google maps states the time to commute to Lehi from SLC takes about 40 min, is that accurate?
If not too late to advise - I would suggest southbound like Saratoga Springs area (near Utah Lake) that would get you much closer to Lehi

Downtown Salt Lake City, Sugahouse, Avenues, Sugarhouse University of Uah areas are full of gay-friendly people and places. If you stay away from conservative family areas such as Draper, East Sandy, Holladay, Riverton, S. Jordan areas, you should be fine. SLC has thousands and thousands of gay and lesbian people. You won't feel out of place. Park City requires money.

If you're still looking for info: I've lived in Salt Lake City for 12 years and it took some getting used to. My partner and I are very active in the community and know quite a bit about the city. It's completely different than anywhere else you might live. Life is easy and people are liberal IF you are in the right areas. SLC is an extremely conservative state because of the huge LDS population. West Jordan and Sandy are the worst... If you want to know more specifics I'd be glad to chat with you.
