America's Most Gay-Coupled Cities, Not Gayest Cities

A note on math: running the numbers on the prevalence of same-sex households in cities is not the same as doing the math on the “gayest cities.” You’re actually discovering the cities that have the most… same-sex households, resting as this premise does on the assumption that “it’s probably a good bet that metro areas with relatively high proportions of same-sex couples will also have relatively high proportions of visible LGBT people, single and coupled.” It might not be, you know! Cities with bigger populations of gays (particularly gay men, hmm?) might actually find fewer same-sex abodes. [N.B. Data preliminary: we have yet to see the full influence of JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality!) on gays, of course.]
