The Vocativ Queer Index was put out into the world yesterday, and now tons of queer-related info about the country's top 35 LGBT-friendliest cities is neatly available through one interactive map.
In addition to naming the top cities, Vocativ provides easy-to-read facts and figures about each locale, like percentage of queer adults, statuses of marriage equality, adoption laws, LGBT politicians, hate crimes, nightlife, sports, media, and more.

Even Yahoo and The Huffington Post have taken note. We started off with a simple premise: What's life really like for the queer community. From there we homed in on the community's passions, concerns and daily realities—and then we started collecting the data.
Diving into the s, we learned new things about known LGBT meccas. For example, New York City has the most hate groups in the country.
We also found countless surprises. Who knew that Memphis has the most single lesbians per capita in the country? Check out the Vocativ Queer Index here.
