Fifty Places to Ditch Your Closeted Childhood

50 Gay Places

Most press releases end up in our trash bin, but when we were sent a note about 50 Fabulous Gay-friendly Places to Live, we took notice. Sure, the book came out last year, but it’s now being promoted as “the perfect gift” for gay college grads and dads. And it is, actually, a nice gesture to offer the homo son looking to escape the conservative Midwest and the fag father hoping to ditch his wife and kids to find romance in the Northeast. We’re just upset nobody gave this book to Vito on The Sopranos.

The full release, after the jump.
