15. Pittsburgh, Penn. (pop. 306,211)
Pittsburgh’s women’s colleges, Chatham University and Carlow University, give the city a two-point boost, but it’s got queer history too: Andy Warhol, Gertrude Stein, and Willa Cather all called this place home. The arts scene is flourishing, with the Warhol Museum (Warhol.org), the Mattress Factory contemporary art museum (Mattress.org), and a vigorous theater scene that includes the Pride Theater Festival in the summer and the Pittsburgh International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (PILGFF.org) in October.
