Don’t Tell Maggie Gallagher, But We Know Where Gays in America Live

SameSex_main

THE SHOT — While New Jersey’s gay marriage law would blanket a larger population than any state with same-sex marriage on the books, Washington D.C.’s just-passed law actually affects more gays per capita. That’s because, according to the Williams Institute’s census analysis, D.C. has some 14 gay couples per 1,000 people — the most in any American jurisdiction. But it’s not all happy news: Maine, which just defeated gay marriage, has the second highest number of gays per capita. And, as The Economist notes, “Those states where gay marriage is legal or where same-sex partnerships are recognised have a higher proportion of same-sex couples than the national average of 4.7.”

      It’s not passed yet. They still need to take another vote and have it signed into law.

      But does this really mean more gays, or just more same-sex couples? I’ve lived in Minnesota, Illinois and Arizona, and of the three, Arizona seemed the least gay. Could it be that gays in Arizona just shack up more?
