Hartford #1, New Haven #5, Waterbury #13  All rated queerest cities in the country

1. HARTFORD, CT  [pop. 124,705]
Hartford made history in 2010 when Pedro Segarra became the city’s first openly gay mayor; he celebrated gay marriage with his husband at the city’s old State House. Segarra became the country’s first legally married gay mayor in 2012. Progressive Connecticut was not only one of the first states to have same-sex marriage; it also protects residents with nondiscrimination for sexual orientation and gender identity in adoption. Points go to Hartford for its Connecticut Gay and Lesbian Chamber (CTGLC.org), its well-attended Out Film CT (OutFilmCT.org) that’s the longest-running film festival in the state, and its revolving door of stadium shows like this year’s Janet Jackson show at the XL Center.  Read More…
