Portland’s the 12th Gayest City?!?!

January 24th, 2012

The Advocate recently published a list of America’s Gayest Cities and Portland came in at number 12. Right in front of Austin, TX (#13) and Little Rock, Arkansas (#11)?!  We got points for our openly gay mayor; Portlandia co-creator, and Sleater-Kinney alum, Carrie Brownstein; the food and art scene in our Pearl and Alberta districts; and our hipster, hyper-locavore, hyper-literate scene….

Well… even if we don’t necessarily agree with the rankings (really?!? Salt Lake City at #1?!), it’s nice to get the mention. Especially considering that Portland did not even make the list in 2011.
