Is Atlanta's rainbow fading?

The Advocate magazine's annual ranking of gayest cities in America is out and Atlanta has been knocked down to No. 9 from last year's lofty No. 1 ranking.

America's new gay mecca? Salt Lake City, Utah.

A new, less scientific methodology is likely to blame for the jumbled rankings. For its third annual list, the magazine uses what it calls "decidedly subjective criteria" instead of census information that tracks same-sex couples as a percentage of the population. Instead, The Advocate opts for "per capita *****ness," which gives smaller cities a chance to compete.

It seems a little odd that Cambridge Ma is number 3, yet two miles over the bridge, Boston is number 24. Obviously, it's a flawed study trying to promote a new city.

I don't have a problem with people who are gay because it does not directly or indirectly affect me. Truth be told I say let em get married...let em serve in the military. It's a personal choice. Furthermore, there will never be a day where "everyone" in the world woke up and decided to be gay. That's an extreme.

BEFORE THIS THREAD GETS CLOSED, let's get back on topic, hmm?

The author even recognizes the subjectivity of the methdology...it's not meant to be a serious scientific study. It's kind of fun seeing a survey that doesn't list the same ol' usual suspects in the Top 5. The measures by which cities were ranked is hilarious!
