8. Knoxville, Tenn.
The state's legislature has been an unmitigated disaster for our rights, making a law to prevent cities from adopting LGBT-inclusive antidiscrimination ordinances (although, happily, the ridiculous "don't say 'gay'" bill is dead for now). Nevertheless, Knoxville has defiantly produced a robust gay scene, including the University of Tennessee's Commission for LGBT People; a welcoming spot for queer, trans, and other marginalized teens at Spectrum Café (SpectrumCafe.org); gay-affirming churches; and thriving nightlife.
