About the Gay and Lesbian Atlas

Drawing from the U.S. Census data, the Gay and Lesbian Atlas provides an unquestionably large degree of information on LGBT demographics. It discloses an accurate portrait of where the communities are and how many LGBT individuals populate what areas. Saying that we are everywhere is a very real comment when considering the uncovered information found within the Gay and Lesbian Atlas. The LGBT community is covered in each of the 50 U.S. states and the gay and Lesbian Atlas expands its information to include several metropolitan areas.

I have yet to find another document that has as much information on the things that are to important to me as a lesbian woman. I want to know where like-minded people reside, and that my family is accepted in the community I choose to live within. It is a remarkable thing to actually feel safe at home, and among those who understand me and my family as a natural family unit.

    There is also a Damron Men's guide. Not sure if they still make the gay yellow pages or pink pages any more. But the Damron guides have been around for many years. If it's gay you'll find it. Another place that's a real quick fix, on a city by city level, is

    Just thought I would add to you collection.
