As the title states.

Some people only look at demographics for diversity-- to me a diverse environment has to have it all. Religious diversity, LGBT stuff, age, gender, ethnicities, races, so on. Also diversity is sort of useless if a place doesn't have a sense of integration, so lets get on with that too.

This ones particularly curious, one slants Euro the other slants Asia-- one's weak in Africa the other in Oceania and their Latin population is divergently opposite.

Not totally sure which is more. To your point they both have their strengths and weaknesses in this regard.

Both to me are diverse but niether would be tops among uS cities in this regard.

At this point it may be a push honestly but if I had to chose one I would probably say Philly

All Seattle is really known for is their asians while Philly is known for their blacks, Dominicans, Asians and puerto ricans but then again this is my opinion.

Philadelphia and Seattle are BOTH known for being extremely excepting gay cities. Both were giving a score of 100 recently.

Philadelphia has more diversity racily though. So Philadelphia therefore, is more diverse.
