Every year, The Advocate ranks the cities in the US for queer friendliness based on a number of criteria. This year, the criteria includes lesbian bars, trans events, gay rugby teams, theaters screening “Moonlight”, Misterb&b hosts, LGBT centers, and more. Here’s today’s pick:
Many people discount St. Louis, well, since it’s kinda in the middle of nowhere. But it’s got a lot going for it â€” a gay rugby team, progressive movie theaters that show LGBT fare, a diverse population welcoming to queer musicians, and a perfect score (!) on HRC’s Municipal Equality Index. There’s a plethora of queer nightlife (check out the Grove district), a brand-new LGBT center (Pride St. Louis), and the St. Louis Blues hockey team just had its first Pride night. Nice job, St. Louis. More on the city here.
