Houston Not a Gay City, Gay Magazine Declares

It doesn't fly in Houston, apparently
The Advocate, the leading national GLBT magazine, has issued a proclamation outlining the 15 gayest cities in America.

Houston isn't one of them. Yeah, yeah: lesbian mayor, Montrose, huge Pride Parade -- counts for nothing, apparently.

Cities that are gayer than Houston? Pittsburgh. St. Louis. Oakland.

Who knew?

The magazine actually put together a precociously scientific and complicated formula, involving math, that included such factors as the number of Gay.com profiles, lesbian bars and "listed officials for gay weddings within a 50-mile radius." Any city in Texas wouldn't fare too well on that one.

The gayest city in America? Not Las Vegas: That's number two. Number one is Minneapolis.

But Houston shouldn't feel too bad. New York didn't make the list either.

Something tells me the gay.com factor played heavily...Those of us in Montrose, West Hollywood, and Chelsea need only to drive/walk/train to "our" neighborhoods and hang out at our multiple bars to bag a trick as opposed to having to skulk around on gay.com in between suicide attempts because we live in sh*t towns like St, Louis or Minneapolis...

That's what my gf said when I mentioned the article: "Oh, we're supposed to register as gay to be counted?"

If I was gay in St. Louis, I'd probably spend a lot of time online, too...

Well, that's that then. Looking at the equation "The Advocate" used - which included Gay.com profiles and Tegan & Sara performances over the past 5 years, I can only conclude that St. Louis is pretty damn gay.

Probably not a definitive list, but fun to read about anyway.

LOL @ St. Louis. Now way, now how. And even if they are "Gay" they have zero concept of good food or fun.

The fact that San Fransico didn't come in first OR second invalidates both the results and the credibility of this supposed "study".
