The Advocate (a gay magazine) last year placed the District in fourth place last year as the gayest city in the United States, but this year it’s #1! Beating out San Francisco (11),Oakland (9), and Atlanta (5). I was not shocked to see my hometown ranked so high but to beat out San Francisco was a bit of a surprise , so that’s what made me even more curious to see how they picked D.C..
The Advocate looked at things such as the number of gay, bisexual, and transgender elected officials,
number of bars, lesbian-coupled headed household, to name a few. I can’t leave out that Arlington came in as number 10. D.C. is one of , no is my favorite cities of all, born there is a feeling of pride I always will hold!
Atlanta is not a surprise coming in at #5 , with it’s upbeat outlook on trends, and being one of the areas that a lot of people relocate to for the some of the same reasons as most move to D.C., progress forward thinking people.
They both offer the hottest night-life, the best gay clubs, but D.C. has the most openly gay officials, making them rank high not only for the gay population , but those up and coming open minded trendy people!
Fredericksburg is a city that has changed a lot since I moved here early 1990’s, I had to venture back to D.C. for Gay Pride weekend, but now my hometown offered it’s first Gay Pride event early 2000, well that’s at least the time I heard about them. I see those trendy open-gay people relocating here, for many reasons, one major reasons is the cost of living here is much more affordable, it’s close to D.C., public transportation is understanding the need to be open longer & added more stops , the building of condos, townhomes, & apartments for those who are not ready for that single family home.
You can’t help but notice that Fredericksburg & surrounding area are understanding the needs of people not wanting that single family home at this moment in their life, but love everything else, now can plant roots here!
