Little Rock listed as 11th gayest city

Posted By on Mon, Jan 9, 2012 at 11:39 AM

Advocate.com has come up with a ranking of the nation's gayest cities (focusing on cities beyond the obvious like New York and San Francisco) and Little Rock clocks in at No. 11. Says the article:

The River Market District is the main gay area, and many businesses that don’t advertise as specifically LGBT are friendly and open. The compact city has Backstreet (1021 Jessie Rd.) and U.B.U. (TheAquarium.bizland.com) for the over-18 crowd, and those of legal drinking age can check out SixTen Center Street Bar, TraX, Miss Kitty’s/Saloon (all three at TraxNLR.com). But not all LGBT life happens in a bar: According to GayChurch.org, nine of the city’s churches advertise as LGBT-friendly. Amen!

River Market District? And looking at the criteria — elected LGBT city officials, transgender protections, nude yoga, a WNBA team — you gotta wonder further. Still, we have had a Gossip concert.
