Summary of research on the most LGBTQ+ friendly places in Wisconsin. We used Saturday Night Science to study the cities in Wisconsin that have the highest percentage of households with same-sex couples in 2024. The information is sourced from the American Community Survey 2013-2018 vintage. This survey provides details about gender and household status. Unfortunately, the Census no longer provides information at the city level. Therefore, this report includes the most up-to-date data available.

  • Park Falls has the highest rate of same-sex households in Wisconsin. 7.18% of households in Park Falls consist of gay individuals.
  • The city in Wisconsin with the highest number of households where same-sex couples live is Milwaukee, with a total of 1,129 gay households.
  • Wisconsin is ranked as the 39th most gay-friendly state in the United States.

About 0.71% of people living in Wisconsin are estimated to identify as gay. That means there are a total of 17,651 households with gay individuals in The Badger State.

Our aim with this post is to use Saturday Night Science and data to find out which cities in Wisconsin have a higher population of LGBTQ+ individuals. Based on our analysis of 218 cities in Wisconsin with over 1,000 households, we have identified the most LGBTQ-friendly cities for 2024.

Method to Determine the Best Cities for Same-sex Households in Wisconsin

We ranked the cities in Wisconsin based on their LGBTQ+ population using data from Saturday Night Science and the 2013-2018 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census. We examined:

  • Percentage of all households that are unmarried, same sex partners

We only analysed non-CDPs that have more than 1,000 households. We assigned a ranking from 1 to 218 to each place based on the percentage of unmarried, same-sex partner households. The city with the highest percentage of these households is considered the most gay.

In the end, it turned out to be the place with the highest percentage of gay households, at 7.18%. If you want to see the list of all the places in the state ranked from the most LGBTQ+ friendly to the least, you can skip to the end.

We have made changes to this report for the year 2024. This report is our tenth edition of ranking the most LGBTQ+ friendly places in Wisconsin.
