Not all cities are LGBTQIA+ friendly

Times are evolving towards greater consideration and openness towards the LGBTQIA+ community, and several cities around the world are considered friendly. Of course, there are also several exceptions.

Here are some of the most LGBTQIA+ friendly U.S. cities.

  • San Francisco, California. It’s no surprise, in fact, the city of San Francisco has always been known as an LGBTQIA+ destination. It is also home to one of the largest and most prominent LGBTQIA+ communities in the United States of America.
  • Austin, Texas. In addition to being famous for its vibrant music scene, the Texan city has been considered very friendly with the LGBTQIA+ community.
  • New York City (New York). One of the most famous and celebrated American metropolises in cinema and television could certainly not be missing from this list. Its Pride manages to involve about 2 million people from all over the world.

Then we have Seattle (Washington) and Portland (Oregon). Both very inclusive and welcoming.

And the unfriendly ones?

  • Houston, Texas. Although the Texan city is home to the last lesbian bars, it is not considered very welcoming to the rainbow community.
  • Memphis, Tennessee. Famous because it’s the birthplace of Elvis Presley, B. B. King and Johnny Cash, it’s not as far as the reception of LGBTQAI+ people is concerned.
  • Jacksonville, Florida. This Florida city has the lowest index of people who oppose gay marriage, but at the same time it is on the list of the least friendly cities with the LGBTQAI+ community.

The list also includes the cities of Birmingham (State of Alabama) and Miami (State of Florida). Despite the fact that the latter city is full of nightlife.

Of course, rankings can change over time. Also because times are evolving, even if the fight for equality promoted by the LGBQTAI+ movement is not yet over.
