Is Vancouver, WA, Gayer than Portland?

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Tue, Jan 18, 2011 at 12:29 PM

LGBT mag The Advocate ranked the nation's gayest cities—it's not pretending to be science ("number of Tegan and Sara concerts" is one data point), but the rankings have a big surprise: Portland doesn't make the list, but Vancouver, WA ranks higher than San Francisco.


They do have two gay lesbian bars, according to the survey, while Portland is down to zero lesbian bars, I think, since the Egyptian Room is now The Weird Bar (worst. name. ever.). So anyway, Vancouver is now the gayest city in the Portland metro area?

h/t to Mercury alum Stefan Kamph for the link!
