I was a few blocks from Union Station when a congressman walked by and gave the reporters I was standing with a big, floppy wave hello. But the message was as clear as it was unsettling for a year-old struggling with his own sexual identity: There were plenty of gay people in Washington, even at the highest levels of government. But instead of being widely accepted, they were usually whispered about derisively, suspect characters to be mocked and maligned. Today, having moved here 10 months ago after six and a half years of living in Manhattan, I hardly recognize that closeted, often intolerant Washington I first glimpsed as a year-old. I now live in the gayest place in America.

LGBTQ+ Retirement Communities and Cities in the US
CBS News A new study that finds children of a gay or lesbian parent may be more likely to have social and emotional problems has sparked controversy on both sides of the same-sex marriage debate. The study, from Mark Regnerus, an associate professor of sociology at The University of Texas at Austin, surveyed more than 15, Americans between the ages of 18 and 39, asking them questions about their upbringings. Its findings are published in the July issue of Social Science Research. One survey question asked whether a parent had been in a same-sex relationship during a child's upbringing; Regnerus wanted to see whether there were differences between kids raised in a household by a parent in a same-sex relationship compared with those who were raised by biological parents who were married and heterosexual.
Although the LGBTQ scene in Little Rock, Arkansas, is much more subdued than in big southern cities like Austin or Memphis, there are a few places for the gay community to mingle with kindred spirits. Known as "the biggest little city in the South," Little Rock is home to more than 1 million people, tons of fun bars, and a diverse culinary scene. LGBTQ folk are in good company, seeing as Little Rock has in the past been ranked the 11th " gayest city " in the country a feat for such a small place. There's no shortage of gay-friendly bars and clubs to find yourself in after dark. If you're a lover of the nightlife, then concentrate your time in Little Rock around the downtown area—River Market Street, especially—where many of the watering holes are.
