List of the most gay friendly cities in the US and gayest cities in America. These large cities and smaller towns are known for their large gay and lesbian populations and open communities. Publications like "The Advocate" base their annual rankings on criteria like the number of LGBT elected officials and protective policies and legislation, as well as the community's level of participation in gay friendly sports, competitions, and social groups. Other groups and sites like The Stir and blogs like Divine Caroline have looked to the general progressive and welcoming atmospheres of gay and lesbian friendly cities.

I didn’t know it had been relocated.
I’m just glad they didn’t have one extra city.
I don’t encounter a lot of homos in Dallas, but I guess it doesn’t surprise me. Dallas proper is a minority/leftist run sewer.
If these are supposed to be the “gayest” cities in America, why does the list include Montreal, Canada and Dublin, Ireland?
I would have figured the Twin Cities for a top 5
Proof of Global Warming.
AIDS centers also map exactly onto this, weirdly
Seems like every fun city in America is being taken over by queers.
My wife and I were married in one of the most bountiful cities in the US (SF) over 40 years ago. My wife and I would love visit in remembrance of our nuptials, but, as it stands, we will just settle for our memories of this once wonderful city. We would rather not have our memories spoiled by what SF has become.
Likewise, Houston, with a sodomite mayor, is not Texas. Dallas is run by leftists and is not Texas. Ft. Worth once seemed like Texas but the metrosexual types have moved in and displaced the Western types. San Antonio, El Paso, McAllen, Brownsville and the entire valley is run by socialist Mexicans. When all is said and done none of the cities embody true Texas values. For that informal rule of thumb, Abilene might be an exception since it has a large Christian university but it too is swarming with the enemy, the criminal invaders from Mexico.
True Texas remains in the rural areas and the nice suburbs where Christianity and Conservatism remain triumphant.
Dallas is on the list, as well as Fort Worth and of course Austin, but Houston is not???? What’s with that?
They missed Portland Maine
Hershey, PA? (for the packing thereof)
I KNEW Ann Arbor was on that list.
If these are supposed to be the gayest cities in America, why does the list include Montreal, Canada and Dublin, Ireland?
Because the author is either ignorant or stupid.
“I don’t encounter a lot in Dallas...”
Ever been to the Oak Lawn area?
They put in Montreal, so by America I assume they mean North America.
But then I see Dublin, Ireland.
The left can’t even be debated with due to their utter ignorance, incoherence and irrationality.
I hear a lot of fudge packing goes on in Hershey.
When (former) Detroit city council president Charles Pugh was caught in an inappropriate relationship with a high school boy, he fled town. He turned up in Seattle.
I thought they screwed up and meant Dublin, Ohio...until I saw Canada in there.
What about New Braunfels?
Can’t believe Fayetteville, Arkansas and Eureka Springs, Arkansas aren’t on this list.
So it’s pretty much every major city, eh? The faggots pretty much live in the central cities just like libtards. Not surprised.
Sad to say, that town which I used to enjoy visiting, has been overrun with third-world types. It's German heritage has been usurped by Mexicans, who now constitute well over a third of the town.
Wrong, there are true Texans living right in the heart of Houston, lots of us.
In Dallas too and even in Austin I am willing to bet. Granted we have too many liberals but that doesn’t make many of us any less conservative.
Not very often, but I know about it. I know enough to avoid it! I had an art teacher in college who said he lived there and it was obviously a fitting location for him and his “housemate.”
Seems that if you want to experience the “real” Texas, you’ll have to go to Waxahachie, Fredericksburg, Ennis, Goliad or Dalhart.
Montreal, Canada is in North America. Not sure about Dublin.
Love it. Riverside, California IS NOT ON THE LIST. We moved from Long Beach 27 years ago. Glad to be here.
Gay-friendly = Christianity-hostile
Yes, that's certainly the case. But the good Christian (and Jewish) Conservatives are overwhelmed by the atheistic liberals, Mexicans, mooselimbs and sodomites. What's really sad is that the once great city of Houston is now the most ethnically and racially diverse city in the U.S. Multiculturalism, of course, is a commie scheme designed to weaken America. I hope that one day President Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz can reverse the trend and restore American Exceptionalism. Then places like Houston and Dallas can return to the pro-God, pro-gun, pro-business Conservatism that once distinguished those communities.
Diversity is perversity.
Fiji Hill’s post in this thread mentions Fredericksburg. It’s been ten years since I was last there during a summer festival. It seemed to still be true to Texas values and culture. Unlike New Braunfels, which is right on a highway to Mexico, Fredericksburg benefits by being a bit harder for the criminal invaders to get to.
Asheville seems too far down the list.
Kansas is free.
There’s a song that has this snippet of lyrics
Hitch hiked to Rome
Took a Greyhound to Fredricksburg
Well I’m flat out broke
Been smoking butts for days
Probably took the Common Core geography course!
Well said and so true. A small group of us here on FR have informally agreed to restore the term "gay" to its rightful meaning before the homosexual facists hijacked it. For those too young to remember, I have occasionally raised a few eyebrows when I talk of my 40+ year gay marriage. Before she passed, my wife and sweetheart, whom I met a Christian college, and I had decades of true happiness and Joy in Christ. That's what a "gay marriage" is genuinely all about. I want America back and I want my word back!
They could get a pass on Canada because it’s in America.
The Dublin thing was strange though.
Amazing Honolulu did not make the list, what with the way the liberal media likes to beat the pro-homosexual drum.
I am PROUD to see my Baltimore is not on this very wide-cast list. Haha, both PA cities are, as is very close DC.
I must concur that Houston is no longer part of Texas. I left Houston in 1999, returned in 2011. The city was already going downhill when I left. During the time I was away, 10 of those years were in Minnesota. Now I see Houston as being part of Minnesota, not Texas. Time to move to Deer Park.
The homos pretty much form their own ghettos.
Wasn’t Manhattan, KS recently sodomized with anti-Christian (”anti-discrimination”) ordinances?
Ireland is one of the 57 states...
