I found this article really interesting.

According to the report, gay men tend to live in more expensive areas. Why? They’re less likely to have kids, so theoretically they need less space and therefore are better able to afford expensive urban neighborhoods, according to this research. Another study showed that home prices rise faster in neighborhoods with higher concentrations of gay couples.

Here’s Trulia’s top 10 lists:

Trulia’s fine print:

*The Census doesn’t ask sexual orientation, of course, so the only way to measure gay neighborhoods is based on where couples live. The Census data requires some corrections and adjustments, described here. Finally, ZIP codes don’t line up perfectly with neighborhoods, but we did our best to use the closest neighborhood names that correspond to the ZIP codes in our analysis.
