Midtown Patch, a hyper-local news outlet funded by AOL, asked an interesting question this morning on its website: Is Midtown losing its gayness?
Amy Wenk, editor of the site, highlights the impending relocation of Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse, as well as the most recent list of the country's “gayest” cities compiled by Advocate.
Atlanta finished this year's list ninth overall, but it's tough to take any list too seriously that doesn't include San Francisco, New York City or Miami. The Advocate makes no claims to any kind of scientific method being applied to the now-annual list. Still, a compliment is a compliment.
Wenk states that Atlanta won the crown last year, but alas, we lost out to Minneapolis in 2011. Atlanta was the country's gay epicenter in 2010, though, according to Advocate. Still, Patch asks a valid question. Is Midtown losing its gayness? And if so, what can be done to save it?
