MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Turns out the Twin Cities aren’t quite as gay as they used to be, according to Advocate.
Minneapolis was named the gayest city in America just two short years ago, but according to the 2013 rankings, the combined Twin Cities has fallen to 10th gayest.
Some of the reasons remain the same — the magazine cites our sexy rugby team Mayhem as part of its reasons — but this year Tacoma and Springfield, Mass. took top honors, being named first and second, respectively.
The online ranking lists pro-LGBT Sen. Al Franken, “early antidiscrimination ordinances, a no-nonsense attitude,” and of course, the Mall of America as other factors for our top 10 ranking and even gives a shout-out to the Town House bar.
It also refers to the Twin Cities as “Midwestern gay mecca.”
The full ranking is below:
15. St. Louis
13. Colorado Springs
10. Minneapolis-St. Paul
6. Salt Lake City
4. Washington, D.C.
2. Springfield, Mass.
