In a recent Time magazine article Washington D.C. has been named the gayest city in the United States by LGBT-interest magazine The Advocate, in its annual ranking of Queer friendly cities.  A city gets points for LGBT elected officials, the percentage of the population that are lesbian couple households, and whether it has bars listed in Out magazine’s 200 Best Bars list — as well as tongue-in-cheek points for concerts by Mariah Carey, Pink, Lady Gaga, or the Jonas Brothers. The points are then divided by the population, which gives a per capita LGBT quotient,.

The magazine’s editors chose the nation’s capitol for its 17 gay elected officials, its many LGBT-friendly districts, and the presence of little-heralded gay icons like House Speaker John Boehner. “Bring extra Kleenex if you invite him over for a Nora Ephron flick on movie night,” said the magazine.

These are this year’s top five gayest cities:

1. Washington, D.C.

2. Pasadena, Calif.

3. Seattle, Wash.

4. Cambridge, Mass.

5. Atlanta, Ga.
