Gayest Cities in America

It’s no secret that megalopolises New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles have robust LGBT life–and we’ve even heard tell of little queer hoods like the Castro and P-Town. But you won’t find any of those homo hot spots on The Advocate’s third annual list.

Gay rights
New destinations for the LBGT community.

(LOS ANGELES) - The Advocate, the world’s leading gay news source, has once again gathered its list of the “Gayest Cities in America.”

There’s now an official census with information on same-sex couples as a percentage of the population, and then there’s The Advocate’s accounting of the gayest places in the USA.

The country knows that gays gather in West Hollywood and Hell’s Kitchen and lesbians are fond of Northampton, Mass.; however, in our third annual accounting of the gayest places in America, The Advocate looks at the per capita queerness of some less expected locales.

Using totally accurate (if decidedly subjective) criteria, The Advocate has created a diverse and somewhat surprising list of the metropolitan areas that are home to a bevy of LGBTs. The Advocate<’s research team examined numerous factors—including out elected officials, WNBA teams, and nude yoga classes—in determining the gay-friendliness of each city.

Those factors were then each assigned a point, the points were tallied, and the raw scores were divided by the population to calculate each city’s per capita homosexuality.
