After San Francisco and Seattle, and it's practically tied with Seattle. I always knew Atlanta had a lot, but I didn't realize it was so far ahead nationwide.

^^^Yea I had never heard of Seattle being so gay, but putting things in perspective, there are probably as many gays in Chelsea as there are in Atlanta, but since NYC is so much bigger, the percentage overall is lower.

Check out the stats on same-sex households; it indicates that a lot of the gay population in Atlanta resides in neighborhoods outside the city limits. In particular, there is DeKalb County; neighborhoods that have a significant gay population include Decatur, Druid Hills, North Druid Hills, Brookhaven, Oak Grove, Northlake and Tucker.

Yep...I think the gay-list only includes the City of Atlanta.

But, like you said, Atlanta is still so gay...in or out!

Where's NYC on that list? NYC has to be ahead of Atlanta...gimmee a break! Nothing against Atlanta, but that count either leaves NYC out, or it's flawed.

After re-reading though, I now see why I jumped to conclusions...the chart is %-based, so the less population a city has, the larger the "gay population" appears.
NYC has 8.3 million, and even if they have the largest gay pop, it would be too small to be reflected above. *duh*

Right...we're not talking raw #s here.
Very frustrating when you try to rent Steel Magnolias, Auntie Mame, Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte or Mommie Dearest at a Blockbuster in NW DeKalb County. And the local Target can never seem to keep that purple Teletubby in stock.
