I wonder what a list of gayest cities would look like based on reliable polling.
 
2013-01-10 09:08:00 AM
Hello, Provincetown?? The place that has gone entire years with no births? Granted it's not a big city, but come on.
 
2013-01-10 09:48:08 AM
No San Francisco?
 
2013-01-10 10:03:03 AM

wxboy: No San Francisco?


They got an honorable mention. I'll bet that chaps their collective asses.

Cythraul: I wonder what a list of gayest cities would look like based on reliable polling.


Oh, you know, on factors that actually matter.

Roller derby?   Please, honey.

I f*cking miss Seattle some days. Then, I remember it rains at least 3/4 of the year there.
 
2013-01-10 10:24:34 AM
Hah! Tacoma, WA is number 1? I know a rather famous (or infamous) gay former TFer from there...
 
2013-01-10 10:25:43 AM
no Houston? Sure, we are in Texas, and that whole gay marriage thing will never pass with the crap leadership we have and KEEP ELECTING EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW THEY ARE CRAP
But, our mayor was the first gay/lesbian mayor elected in a major metropolitan area.. and she was re-elected...
The hate crimes we have here rarely have to do with homophobes (other hate yes, but not so much on the gay hate)
huge gay neighborhood (Montrose) with the Heights moving up too
Huge roller derby following
FABULOUS shopping... all the big names are here...

/not a fan of Mayor Parker, she has a beef with the fire dept, but she isn't a terrible mayor

namegoeshere: Hello, Provincetown?? The place that has gone entire years with no births? Granted it's not a big city, but come on.


Provincetown doesn't meet their >150K population.  But the whole thing is arbitrary.  I wouldn't doubt they tweak the criteria every year for maximum trolling/clicks.

OK, two cities from Oregon and one of them is Salem??? And the other is not Portland???

And how can Salem be popular with gay people? Nobody wants to live in Salem.

Wow. Peoria, IL got 21 on the honorable mention. I didn't expect this city to rank anywhere close. I wonder what positive factors Peoria has.

SL,UT!

The center of LGBT life in Tacoma is the St. Helens District

That volcano always did give off gay vibes...

/no Chicago? Our state's on the cusp of marriage equality...
//of course, that might just move Peoria higher on the list

You know, the fact that:


Concerts by Scissor Sisters, Uh Huh Her, Girl in a Coma, and cast of Glee

and


Transgender protections


are given the same level of points tells me everything I need to know about this poll.
 
2013-01-10 01:40:53 PM
Yay Eugene, OR!  Good for you.

Not sure how it made the list considering there isn't a whole foods for about 100 miles, but...
 
2013-01-10 01:55:48 PM
No New Orleans??  We host Southern Decadence - the Gay Mardi Gras.
 
2013-01-10 03:20:58 PM
Fabulous shopping - 1 point each if a city has Whole Foods, West Elm, or Pottery Barn stores

OK, I laughed.
 
2013-01-10 05:44:02 PM
Surprised Dallas not on list.

/serious
 
2013-01-10 06:27:02 PM

downstairs: No New Orleans??  We host Southern Decadence - the Gay Mardi Gras.


Agreed. Also Los Angeles and either Cleveland or Columbus.

/Ohio, I am dissapoint

Guuberre: wxboy: No San Francisco?

Along with Peoria IL.

I always confuse the two.

wxboy: No San Francisco?


In the Advocate? You're kidding, right?
 
2013-01-10 11:42:56 PM
No Louisville? really?
 
2013-01-11 01:12:44 AM
Gay people already know what the gayest cities are in the US.

So, every year the Advocate makes up some arbitrary criteria so they can have a list their readers will actually glance over.
 
2013-01-11 05:27:16 AM
I subscribed to The Advocate. Yeah. They sell your shiat to every AIDS charity in the US. And they send their begging in large, bright red envelopes that say "GAY GAY GAY GAY" despite the magazine itself coming wrapped up like a porno magazine.

Both things are hugely inappropriate, and actually cause more problems than simply mailing shiat normally.

It's also a terrible magazine.

fark the advocate.

Talking about Oak Lawn?
 
2013-01-11 08:42:17 AM
I'm supportive, so I am always happy to see Atlanta on gay-friendly lists like this, regardless of the ridiculous requirements. You may scoff at roller-derby, but there are at least 8 teams in Atlanta with regular bouts, and all of them are supportive.

Pinner: SL,UT!
SL,UT!
SL,UT!


Come to Seattle and you can ride the SLUT (South Lake Union Trolley). Yes really - come get your "Ride the SLUT" t-shirt.

/knows what you did up there
//approves
 
2013-01-11 09:16:28 AM
Making Tacoma, WA the first in anything makes this entire list suspect.
 
2013-01-11 12:37:04 PM

cgraves67: Wow. Peoria, IL got 21 on the honorable mention. I didn't expect this city to rank anywhere close. I wonder what positive factors Peoria has.


Lots of unsupervised rest areas?
 
2013-01-11 01:40:16 PM
My only take away from this list is the Pacific Northwest has a lot of lumberjacks.

/and they're okay
 
2013-01-12 02:29:26 AM
Tacoma...? I don't care how gay it is, I'd still never live there.
 
2013-01-12 02:31:30 AM
Kansas City has gotten pretty gay over the past 10 years or so. I moved to the burbs 5 years ago, but every time I'm forced to go back, it's gayer than the last time.
