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:
Only an hour’s drive from Los Angeles, Anaheim is not such a small world when it comes to LGBT inclusion. The community boasts an LGBT centerÂ and a score of 80 on theÂ Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index. Itâ€™s also home to the Happiest Place on Earth, which hosts the ever-popular Gay Days celebrations. Anaheim recently opened its architecturally significant ARTIC rail staion (seen above), which makes travel to L.A. and other parts of California quite a breeze. Wary of Orange County? For the first time since the Great Depression, the longtime Republican county went blue, voting for Hillary Clinton over you-know-who. More on Anaheim here.
