And The Gayest City In The U.S. Is…

Washington D.C., According to The Advocate.

From the article:

Surprised that San Francisco didn’t top the list? The Advocate has a unique way of ranking what cities are the “gayest” with a list of criteria intended to “uncover the hidden factors that give a city its queer cred.”

A city gets points for LGBT elected officials, the percentage of the population that are lesbian couple households, and whether it has bars listed in Out magazine’s 200 Best Bars list — as well as tongue-in-cheek points for concerts by Mariah Carey, Pink, Lady Gaga, or the Jonas Brothers. The points are then divided by the population, which gives a per capita LGBT quotient, according to The Advocate.

The magazine’s editors chose the nation’s capitol for its 17 gay elected officials, its many LGBT-friendly districts, and the presence of little-heralded gay icons like House Speaker John Boehner. “Bring extra Kleenex if you invite him over for a Nora Ephron flick on movie night,” said the magazine.

These are this year’s top five gayest cities:

1. Washington, D.C.

2. Pasadena, Calif.

3. Seattle, Wash.

4. Cambridge, Mass.

5. Atlanta, Ga.

I thought for sure it'd be San Francisco.

Surprised it's not even in the top 5.

Damn it. I live 45 min from D.C. and before coming in this thread, I thought "It would be funny if it was D.C." Well, good for them.

I can see this story being run in The Onion. "In response to the ranking, the San Fran gay community will make sure that 2014 is the gayest year yet for the city."

The more anti-gay you get, the gayer you probably are. So the South is essentially the buttfuck capital of the world. If they won the Civil War, it'd probably be our national sport.

I wonder what the most straight cities are then.

Watching Deliverance might get a bit weirder now.

I live in ATL and thought it would be top 3 easy. A lot of gay pride events in the area, and I see gay people all the time. Well, hard to tell with the females, but I've seen a lot of dudes in tight shorts and flamboyantly colored shirts... even now, and the high today was like 25....

Oh, you should. It's a really good film (will probably be nominated for an academy award), and is a fascinating look at the whole aids thing as well as the community as a whole.

But only one of those top five cities is in the South.

congratulations on your speeling!

TOPIC: I remember a daily show segment that showed St. Louis as the gayest city, just a couple years ago. I guess they migrate?
