Salt Lake City #7 for LGBT Percentage in US

According to Gallup Daily tracking interviews, SLC has ranked #7 for most dense LGBT population in the US, ranking at 4.7%. These findings came from the interview question: "Do you, personally, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender?"

In 2012, Salt Lake was deemed the "Gayest City" in the US.  Partly a joke to raise the cackles of the state and it's mormons, and partly a result of the publisher's positive experience with LGBT culture in SLC.

Utah has recently passed state-wide bans to discrimination based on sexual preference and identity. The same laws already existed in SLC municipal policies. This is also on the heels of legalizing same-sex marriage due to the federal rulings that banning such unions is unconstitutional.

Maybe Salt Lake actually is one of the gayest cities in the US...
