This map is not a map of where gay people live. Rather, it's a map of where same-sex couples are, specifically same-sex couples who identified themselves to the Census Bureau. Since the average is 4.7 same-sex couples per 1000 couples, I'm guessing that only about 10% of us are so coupled.


After the jump is our Google Analytics map from this past month, showing where readers who ended up on this site came from.

Okay, Alex, a better (and more popular) map would be one that told where to find single LGBT people looking to be coupled.

Can you work on that please?

Ditto what Michael says!

Also, "Oh my God! What have they done to Canada!?!

I still think it's funny that we launched TBP as an alternative to the whole "Everything is NY or California" and it's still where a shit-ton of readers come from...

Bil, it's called "mission drift" ...
