UK Lesbians: A Map


In honor of their 150th anniversary, British lady mag Diva published this handy map of lesbian hot spots across the United Kingdom, which are shown in red. And that data rocked the region’s Sapphic foundations:

The near-even spread of lesbians across the UK was not what Diva predicted.

Lesbians appear to be almost everywhere and a lot more thinly spread than we might think: most UK postcodes house between 0.2% and 1% of the lesbians in this survey, and it’s only in cities that upwards of 2% of the survey’s lesbians are found.

“The academic literature suggests that the lesbian population is not as concentrated [in major centres] as the gay male population,” said Darren Smith, an expert in the geography of population, at Brighton University.

It’s all part of the plan, see? The gays hit hard in urban areas, while the lesbians fan out and begin nesting for the final phase of the revolution. Alright, team, back to the drawing board!

(Note that the lesbians have taken over all of Ireland. Well done, lasses!)
