I'd add Portland, Maine to the list. Though tiny, it's very popular among the gay population. Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitors sites is not allowed has a very high GLBTG index for Portland. Also, Provincetown MA (not a city at all) is probably the highest concentration (percentage of population) in the Northeast and only behind a few on a national level.

There must not be any churches in the NE

Someone posted this on another thread quite awhile back. While I find it to be pretty funny, I also find it to be true of Tucson.

Bloomington Indiana is not good either.

Madison is probably okay, but it is still in Wisconsin.

Providence is in a state where she likely will never be able to be married because it is 68% Roman Catholic.
What Chicago do you live in? lol

That is why we are leaving Florida also....plus it is a desert with horrid heat and humidity. They do not think gays are human...I advise gay people to NOT even vacation here...some of the people here are the rudest/most uneducated people I have ever met!

for any one to hold too much weight. They tend to be ignored by the legislature.

Example. There was one state senator (Republican BTW), roman catholic, who sponsored the bill permitting over the counter despensing of the Morning After Pill. This caused a big uproar with the church. He issued a statement that he was elected to office by the people of the state of all religions and no religion. He said he was not elected bishop of the catholic church.

This was in upstate NY, not NYC.

I agree. I swear, half the girls at USM were lesbians and were very open about PDA.
