The Human Rights Campaign, which describes itself as "the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender civil rights organization," has just released its third-annual Municipal Equality Index, in which it measured the state of LGBT equality in 353 communities across the country, including six in Colorado.
The Colorado entrants all fell short of the ideal (38 communities scored a perfect 100), but all are above the national average of 59 -- although several finished only a little over that mark. Continue to count down Colorado's photo-illustrated top six, complete with HRC graphics -- and click to see the complete report, featuring a wealth of additional information.
