If you read Advocate.com you’ve probably seen the article about some of the gayest cities in the United States. This is a pretty broad statement if you ask me, but the people over at Advocate have a legit scoring system.
United States cities are ranked on the following:
- Same-sex couple households per capita
- Statewide marriage equality
- Gay elected officials
- Gay dating and hookup profiles per single male population
- Gay bars per capita
- Cruising spots per capita
- Gay films in Netflix favorites
Good ole gay Fort Lauderdale came in at number four (the list included the top 15). Advocate said this about Fort Lauderdale:
In the late ’80s, Fort Lauderdale exorcised the college partiers and MTV’s Spring Break and transformed itself into a place for gays to vacation, indulge (there are more than 25 bars and clubs in the area), settle down, or escape South Beach. The suburb of Wilton Manors has 1,270% more gay men per capita than the national average, and Fort Lauderdale’s newly elected mayor, Jack Seiler, is vocally supportive of gay and lesbian equality.
