Minneapolis is the gayest city in America according to The Advocate
We clicked through The Advocate's new slide show, one loser city at a time, until Minneapolis popped up as the Gayest City in America.
Gayer than Cleveland and St. Louis? Sure. But gayer than San Francisco? And New York? Heck, New York didn't even make the list.
Advocate writer Mike Albo admits this is all in good fun, and not the kind of work that stands up to scientific inquiry. But, hey, we all love lists, so why not?
This list demonstrates that the homosexual agenda is spreading across the 50 states -- from Washington, D.C., to Vancouver, Wash. -- and especially, it seems, in the heartland. Like it or not, America, LGBT is more a part of the USA than ever before.
Here's the Top 15:
Over the past decade, Minneapolis has become the gay magnet city of the Midwest. It makes sense: People here are no-nonsense, practical, and don't deal well with hypocrites. This is where the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America took a historic leap forward and voted to accept gay and lesbian pastors, including the Reverend Mary Albing, the denomination's first openly lesbian pastor. And Minnesota senator Al Franken introduced the Student Non-Discrimination Act to protect LGBT youth from school bullies. But that's not all. Minneapolis also has the very hot Mayhem rugby team (MayhemRFC.com) and a thriving bear community with events like Bob's Bear Bash, every Wednesday night at the Saloon (SaloonMN.com).
