Where the Gays Are

M.J’s Team Pick:

I love pop culture sociology like this, especially when it involves lavender-shaded color coding. WNYC made a map using the US census findings to determine how many self-identified gay couples are residing in the city, and in which neighborhoods. This basically confirms the gayborhood stereotypes of the city. Lots of ’em in Chelsea!
