New index rates cities by LGBT inclusion

The Human Rights Campaign has produced a new Municipal Equality Index, designed to rate cities’ LGBT policies in a parallel way to its well-known Corporate Equality Index. For its first publication, the index features 137 cities, including the country’s 50 largest cities, the 50 state capitals, and 75 municipalities with a high proportion of same-sex couples.

The index measured cities according to non-discrimination policies and partnership recognition, as well as LGBT inclusion in civil services and law enforcement. Eleven of the cities scored a 100 percent rating, while 25 percent had at least 80 points. Here are the cities with the perfect scores:

  • Long Beach, California
  • Los Angeles, California
  • San Diego, California
  • San Francisco, California
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Cambridge, Massachusetts
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • New York, New York
  • Portland, Oregon
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Seattle, Washington
