Top LGBTQ+ cities revealed

New research has revealed the world’s most LGBTQ+ friendly cities.

Reykjavic, the Icelandic capital, came out on top of the poll conducted by financial website

It was closely followed by Amsterdam and Rotterdam in Holland, San Francisco in the USA and Dublin in Ireland.

The research studied three key criteria to determine which were the most accepting cities in the world based on what life is like for the LGBTQ+ people in them:

  • LGBTQ+ acceptance level (an indicator sourced from Social Progress
  • Number of dedicated LGBTQ+ establishments per 100,000 people
  • Average rating of these establishments

Reykjavik scored top and was the only city to score 10/10 for its acceptance of the community.

It was also found to have 2.5 LGBTQ+ establishments per 100,000 people.

Amsterdam and Rotterdam finished in second and third place, respectively – both scoring a rating of 9.8/10.

Cities in the USA made up one quarter of it with San Francisco ranking highest of these at fourth.

Also reaching the top 20 was Boston at 11th, Seattle at 12th, Los Angeles at 16th and Chicago at 17th.

Four UK cities made the list, Edinburgh at 7th, Cardiff at 8th, Glasgow at 9th and London at 18th.
