Detroit gets top honors for LGBTQ friendliness

New, 4 comments

The Municipal Equality Index ranked the Motor City with the “All Star” title

For the fifth year in a row, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation released their annual Municipal Equality Index (MEI) for over 500 cities in the nation, ranking them on how inclusive they are for the LGBTQ community. So, how did Detroit do?

Not surprisingly, Detroit earned a solid 100 along with the "All Star" title for the second year in a row. Ann Arbor meanwhile scored a perfect 100, up from last year’s 77. East Lansing also scored 100. Ferndale on the other hand only scored a 94 due to having no Human Rights Commission or Transgender-inclusive Healthcare Benefits.

Overall, Michigan scored 69, above the national average of 55.

What do you think of these results? Surprised? Or do they seem accurate?
