Seattle Bumps San Francisco To Become No. 1 U.S. City For Gay Households
San Francisco has been dethroned and replaced with a new queen.
According to new figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau, Seattle now has the most gay households of America's 50 largest cities. The just-released numbers show that in 2012, gay households numbered at 2.6 percent in Seattle, knocking out San Francisco, which, at 2.5 percent, had boasted the No. 1 spot since 2000.
When it comes to further specifying, however, San Francisco still has more gay male couples living within its boundaries whereas Seattle claims a wide margin of lesbian households at 1.2 percent, the only city to pass the one percent mark.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Colorado Springs, Fort Worth and El Paso round out the bottom of the list with the least amount of gay couples calling the cities home.
