Arlington scored 93/100 in the rankings. Alexandria lagged at 86, but is well ahead of most other communities.

I am disappointed that the index only covers major cities, because it would have been hilarious to see how the charmingly named "Lynchburg" in VA would have fared, to take just one example.

Their motto seems to be "The only major city in Virginia that was not recaptured by the U.S. before the end of the American Civil War." Hoorah.

(I see the place apparently has a PFLAG chapter and an lgbt community center of some sort and some lgbt welcoming houses of worship. I guess times do change, however slowly.)
