The Advocate Calls Nashville, Tennessee 8th Gayest City in the USA

Published Date Author: , January 13th, 2012

Knoxville, TennesseeSo: It’s officially official. Knoxville is more gay-friendly than Atlanta. And Denver, Long Beach, Austin, Portland, Little Rock, and Grand Rapids, Mich.

Leading LGBT magazine The Advocate released its Gayest Cities in America list on Monday, and Knoxville landed a surprising #8, with Salt Lake City coming in at #1. But before bragging to friends in bigger cities or threatening to boycott Gay Street, there are a few caveats to keep in mind: While the list purposely focuses on “the per capita queerness of some less expected locales” rather than the usual suspects, the survey’s criteria is often decidedly tongue in cheek. Balancing straightforward ratings like “LGBT elected city officials” and “Transgender protection” are things like “Nude yoga” and “International Mr. Leather competition semifinalists.”

Lists like these can’t possibly be 100 percent “accurate,” so having fun with it seems like a reasonable route to take.
