Are you shocked that Los Angeles and New York didn’t make the list in our fourth annual accounting of city life in America? Then listen up, honey. As much as we love fabulous soirees and mimosa brunches, there’s much more to LGBT life than that. We live in little burgs and big cities and tons of places in between — so we’re looking at the in-between.
This year our totally accurate (and totally subjective and constantly changing) criteria for a great gay city had to include two of the biggest legislative and political developments for LGBTs: marriage equality votes in four states and the election that swept a ton of queers into high office, including seven members of Congress.
This star of the South and former gayest city has clothes, clubs, cuties, concerts Ã¢â‚¬â€ and yes, some housewives too. Atlanta also has hot gayborhoods (Ansley Park, East Atlanta, Grant Park, Kirkwood, Midtown, and nearby Decatur for the ladies).
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no wonder that half of the residents have moved to Hotlanta from somewhere else. Sure, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s plenty of culture and high art, but donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t miss legendary clubs like My SisterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Room (MySistersRoom.com) and Swinging Richards (SwingingRichards.com).
