In Cities, Suburbs and the Sticks

Gary Gates Uncovers the U.S. Communities that Same-Sex Couples Call Home
September 4, 2004

Abstract

[Financial Times] Not too long ago, only a few large U.S. cities, such as San Francisco and New York, were thought of as gay meccas. Today, hundreds of American towns bear gay markings, not only in the form of a few fluttering rainbow flags but in thriving urban businesses, suburban cultural offerings and revitalized holiday venues. This article uses findings from The Gay and Lesbian Atlas (Urban Institute Press, 2004) to show there is more than anecdotal evidence to support the growing belief that gay and lesbians are vital to many American communities.
