Parenting by Gays More Common in the South, Census Shows
File this under "Surprising Fact of the Day." The New York Times just ran an article about how child-rearing by same sex couples is more common in the South than in any other region in the country. Jacksonville, FL has one of the largest populations of gay parents in the nation. This is surprising for me - I would have figured that the Midwest or one of the coasts would have taken the top gay parenting prize. The South just got a little cooler in my book.
