Big photos, graphics below.
The Human Rights Campaign has just released an ambitious study entitled the Municipal Equality Index. The goal: to grade cities across the country when it comes to LGBT inclusivity in municipal law.

Of the 291 cities analyzed, four were from Colorado: Denver, Boulder, Aurora and Colorado Springs. Of the quartet, two wound up with mediocre tallies, while the other two were much better, with the last just shy of a perfect score. Look below to see photos and data for each, followed by the complete report.

Dumb.... casting judgement and not expecting it in return.

Colorado Springs treatment of gays is SHOCKING and they consider it "corrective therapy".

When I read this I thought to myself "Well, we know for sure it's not C Springs!" I've never seen a bigger bunch of intolerant jerks in my life. My partner has wanted to move there for years to be closer to work. Not only no - HELL no. The last time we ate dinner out that way they were playing Christian hymns over the intercom and the waitress "blessed" us twice. God help us.

Forgive my ignorance. I'm extremely grateful for this HRC study. I live in Jacksonville FL and it is EXACTLY what I've been telling the world DESPITE The Advocate magazine trying, taking money from the Chamber of Commerce to say different! It's one of the most HATER cities in America! Back to topic, this confirms for me, moving to Denver this coming May is a better idea than Orlando, by a long shot. What I'm curious about and mean no disrespect is, I always thought of Denver-Boulder as one area. Couldn't it be construde as well that the survey did the same thing? I mean, I have believed that Colorado Springs is a MAJOR Hater area, and extremely conservative. May I please get some feedback on Boulder and Colorado Springs? It's very important to me as I continue to collect demographics and make a life changing decision. The South is killing me and now, I feel vendicated seeing this study. Thank you!!

I still can't believe we all don't have the same rights! We are all human! Colorado Springs needs to come to grip with this.

The Springs being on the bottom is no surprise, and Denver being above Boulder isn't either considering the size and duration of their Pridefest! :D

This kinda seems like a no-brainer to me for some reason.

Their own math is a bit off. 16/26 in "Municipality as Employer" and still a score of 99?

Denver seems friendly to me. Have been happy here for almost ten years (yikes. ..long time).

Couldn't you have broken this up into 10 (TEN) separate pages for the readers' inconvenience ?
