MA: Provincetown, The Gayest City in the US

Provincetown Real EstateAs the release of U.S. Census data for 2010 nears an end, so far the city with the highest proportion of same-sex couples is — surprise, surprise — Provincetown, Mass.

Provincetown (pictured) has 163 same-sex couples per 1,000 households, topping Wilton Manors, Fla., a Fort Lauderdale suburb that has 140 per 1,000, according to an analysis of census information by the Williams Institute, a think tank on LGBT issues based at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Law.

Massachusetts and Florida were two of the four states, plus the District of Columbia, on which the Census Bureau and Williams Institute released data last week. The others were Michigan and South Carolina. To date information has been released on 45 states and D.C. Data is scheduled to be published Thursday on North Dakota, New Mexico, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Rhode Island.
