|Fierce — Atlanta again ranks as one of the gayest cities in America|

The Advocate released its not scientifically sound study of the gayest cities in America today for 2012 and Atlanta is ranked in the Top 10 — number 9, to be exact.
The magazine writes up this year's description of Atlanta:
We won’t fault you for trying to forget Real Housewife Kim Zolciak’s dip into the lesbian pool — but don’t blame Atlanta if everyone there wants to sample the fun LGBTs have all over town. Lesbian businesses thrive in East Atlanta, and gay clubs go off in Mechanicsville. People coming to Atlanta like to party, and the GayTL delivers with Black Gay Pride in September and Atlanta Pride in October, and the black gay clubs’ second-busiest weekend of the year surrounds the observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday in January. Holla!
Um, yes, we are trying to forget Kim Zolicak's dip into the lesbian pool with DJ Tracy Young. Thanks for the reminder. Not.
We always love (coff, coff) the scoring system devised by the Advocate to determine who makes it as a top gay city. This year's rankings were decided by, among other things, the number of nude yoga classes available and if a city has a WNBA team. Points were also given for number of LGBT city elected officials and number of LGBT bookstores.
The No. 1 city this year? Salt Lake City. It beat out San Francisco (really?) and Portland. Check out the list of the other gayest cities here.
