New Weekly in Salt Lake City Bans Gay Personals

"We will be a hard-hitting, good, clean paper that will carry non-offensive ads," says Rich Kuchinsky, ad director for Utah Weekly, a free paper that debuted last week along the Wasatch Front. "(A)dvertisers are wasting their money" in the rival Salt Lake City Weekly, Kuchinsky claims, because "Moms" and "families" are offended by some of the ads in that AAN-member publication. Kuchinsky tells the Deseret News, "We have no problem with 'men seeking women' and 'women seeking men,' and that's where it will stop."
