We Love Our Nation’s Gay Friendly Cities – Here Are a Few That Might Surprise You!

Life and Pride in the U.S. has changed dramatically over the last few years for the gay community. The nationwide legalization of gay marriage, formation of anti-discrimination laws, and steady crumbling of homophobia have all contributed to making the U.S. more inclusive and a better place to live for everyone.

While we still might be struggling with pizza shops in Indiana refusing service to the LGBT community, bigoted politicians in Texas or citizens like Kim Davis undermining the law and refusing marriage licenses to men and women in love, the nation – in general – has undergone massive adjustments when it comes to its perspective and understanding of equal rights. Some cities in our country have been more proactive than others in embracing the gay community, and these gay havens have reaped the benefits of diversity, the pink dollar and (let’s be honest) some good taste.

It’s easy to recognize San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles as being some of the most friendly gay cities in the country, but there are a multitude of other cities making progress and exhibiting surprisingly gay-friendly tendencies!

Don’t forget to SHARE your pride for these cities!
