Advocate names Atlanta 9th ‘gayest’ city in America

Atlanta Pride festival

The Advocate today released its annual list of the “Gayest Cities in America.” Atlanta, the birthplace of civil rights, was ranked 9th, the same position it held a year ago in Advocate's 2012 rankings.

Other cities featured in this year's list include three cities from Washington state. Tacoma, Wa. was named this year's “gayest city.” (Complete list at the bottom of this article)

The ranking criteria isn't exclusive to gay bars and nightlife, nor is it an exact scientific determination, as the Advocate points out.
