Who says NH is not diverse?
UCLA crunched Census data and determined that New Hampshire has a higher percentage of gay, lesbian or bisexual adults than any other state. A commenter at Blue Hampshire quips: "Maybe we should let the DNC know that we have the highest sexual diversity in the country."
The study, which is here, estimates that 6.6 percent of the New Hampshire population is gay, lesbian or bisexual. Nevada comes in at 3.9 percent, South Carolina at 3.8 percent and Iowa at 2.8 percent. What about our neighbors? Massachusetts is at 5.7 percent, Vermont 5.1 and Maine 5.2. Has a New England tipping point been reached? The implications for the civil-union/gay-marriage debate bear watching.
