According to a new study from Consumer Affairs, LGBT people are moving to traditionally “red” states and adding a few more colors to the rainbow. used available information from the Census Bureau and Gallup to get the info and compiled it into the nifty map you see above, and the results are definitely intriguing:


  • Salt Lake City saw the biggest increase in the size of its LGBT community as a portion of the total population, moving from 39th place in 1993 to 7th as of 2014 (the most recent available data).
  • Of the 20 cities that saw a positive change in their ranking, 11 were in traditionally red states including Virginia, Kentucky, Louisiana and Texas.
  • Traditionally LGBT-friendly cities like Minneapolis, San Diego and New York saw a drop in their national rankings.

You can navigate around the map here and take a look at the LGBT demographic trends for multiple cities between 1990 and 2014.

It’s very cool, and the news really isn’t so shocking.

As LGBT rights rise, the traditionally gay-friendly meccas like NYC and the West Coast are no longer the oasis in the desert for gays looking for acceptance.

Also, Salt Lake City is surprisingly beautiful and packed with more gays than you think. The beautiful mountain views during the descent into Salt Lake City International Airport alone are worth the trip, and we hear they have a pretty great pride, too.

Deodorant Ad Perfectly Nails What’s Wrong With The Trans Bathroom Debate

by Dan Tracer October 26, 2016

Leave it to a deodorant company to get what so many elected officials in this country can’t quite wrap their heads around — that there is no “one way” to express gender. And while right wing politicians and talking heads spend no shortage of time obsessing over how they, and most importantly their pure and [...]
