Municipal Equality Index

The Municipal Equality Index (MEI) examines the laws, policies, and services of municipalities and rates them on the basis of their inclusivity of LGBT people who live and work there.

The 2013 MEI rates a total of 291 cities from every state in the nation, more than double the number of cities rated in 2012.
