Today, Insidermonkey experts decided to present you with the best cities for LGBT families. America has become a far friendlier place for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Since 2003, when Massachusetts became the first state to legalize same-sex marriage, another 35 states and the District of Columbia have done the same. This shift in attitudes toward LGBT rights is also reflected in a national poll conducted in May by Gallup, which found a record-high 60% of Americans support same-sex marriage, up 5% from last year.
This is the third year Nerd Wallet has conducted a study on LGBT residents in cities across the U.S. This year, with data from Gallup and other recent studies, our new methodology presents a more detailed picture of LGBT demographics across the nation. See the section at the end of this study for the full methodology. You can also check our list of these 10 Countries with the Biggest Gay Populations in the World.
