The Advocate, an LGBT magazine, has released a list of what it says are the "gayest" cities in the U.S.

The equation breakdown used is a bit different from what you may have expected. The magazine takes into account such parameters as LGBT bookstores and "International Mr. Leather competition semifinalists" among the nine criteria used to compile the list.

The top five cities are:

5. Seattle

4. Fort Lauderdale

3. Cambridge, Mass.

2. Orlando

1. Salt Lake City

While those unfamiliar with the Beehive State are likely to conjure images of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, far-less-oppressive-than-it-used-to-be Salt Lake City has earned its queer cred. There are more than a half-dozen hot spots for men and women, including the eco-friendly nightclub Jam (JamSLC.com), though the sustainable bamboo flooring is perhaps less of a draw than the packed dance floor. The Coffee Garden (878 South 900 East) is a gathering spot for those looking for a caffeine fix, the Sundance Film Festival brings LGBT film buffs to screenings downtown, and lesbian-owned Meditrina (MeditrinaSLC.com) is a true wine bar — yes, you can get a drink in this town.

He talks about gay people more than the average Republican congressman. :lol:

This Advocate list is hilariously bad; using metrics like number of WNBA players only furthers stereotypes. I wouldn't be caught dead holding hands with another man anywhere in Salt Lake City. :tape:

The Advocate was clearly just desperate to generate some publicity by selecting a controversial number one.
