The Advocate just released its annual list of the “Gayest Cities in America,” and if you’re thinking, “Duh, New York, San Francisco, and LA,” here’s a bombshell for you: those gay metropolises didn’t even make the cut (well, San Fran does get a shoutout in the honorable mentions). Editors narrowed the list down to 15 cities using entertaining-if-not-exactly-scientific criteria like number of LGBT elected officials, gay rugby and roller derby teams, presence of Pottery Barn stores, frequency of Scissor Sisters concerts, and of course, whether or not gay marriage has been legalized, and many of the results might surprise you. Which city earned the #1 spot? Well, that’s the biggest surprise of all. Find out after the jump!

It’s Tacoma, Washington! Yep, the Pacific Northwest city won out for meeting pretty much every “Gay City” requirement, plus balancing a certain small town charm with a gorgeous natural setting and an unexpectedly awesome nightlife.

What do you think of these rankings? What cities would you add to the list?
