SF Weekly readers might remember just how upset the gay community was when San Francisco was booted down the list of gayest cities in America last year. To add insult to injury, the Advocate has not only decided San Francisco is still not the gayest city, but that Salt Lake City -- home of the God-worshiping Republicans, is.
How is that possible, you ask? Well, in our unscientific opinion, it's not. Yet the Advocate insists that Salt Lake City is the No. 1 spot this year for homos. Using, its subjective criteria (nude yoga) and obviously fuzzy math, the 'zine bumped some of the most unsuspecting cities to the top of the queer list.
We're guessing Utah isn't happy about this, either.
It's a head-scratcher, no doubt, but rather than try to recalculate the data to work in our favor, we went ahead and came up with some possible explanations as to why Utah outranked San Francisco, home of the cock-shaped cookie.
5. "Gays in Utah" is a counterintuitive story that makes for a scintillating and scandalous-sounding headline. And we really can't fault the Advocate for wanting to capitalize on what gays there are in Utah.
