US Map

LGBT people are increasingly moving to traditionally red states where they lack protections against discrimination and are under attack from anti-gay lawmakers, according to an analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau and Gallup.

Of the 20 US cities that saw increases in their rankings for percentage of LGBT residents from 1993 to 2014, 11 were in traditionally red states including Virginia, Kentucky, Louisiana and Texas, according to ConsumerAffairs.com.

Salt Lake City saw the biggest increase in the size of its LGBT community, moving from 39th place in 1993 to 7th in 2014 (the most recent available data), ConsumerAffairs reports.
