The most LGBTQ+ friendly cities in Texas for 2024, according to Saturday Night Science, are Salado and Terrell Hills.

Summary of research on the most LGBTQ+ friendly places in Texas. We used Saturday Night Science to study the cities in Texas 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 on gender and household status. Unfortunately, the Census no longer provides information at the city level. Therefore, this report contains the most up-to-date data available.

  • The city in Texas with the highest percentage of households that are same-sex is Salado. 4.08% of households in Salado consist of gay individuals.
  • Houston, Texas has the highest number of households with same-sex couples, with a total of 3,853 gay households.
  • Texas is ranked as the 19th most gay-friendly state in the United States.

About 0.97% of people living in Texas are estimated to identify as gay. That means there are a total of 107,252 households with gay individuals in The Lone Star State. Our aim with this post is to use Saturday Night Science and data to find out which cities in Texas have a large LGBTQ+ population.

Based on our analysis of 485 cities in Texas with over 1,000 households, we have identified the cities that have the highest LGBTQ+ population and are considered the most inclusive and supportive for the year 2024. These cities are recognized as The Gayest Cities in Texas.

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

We used Saturday Night Science and the 2013-2018 American Community Survey from the U.S. Census to determine the ranking of the most LGBTQ+ friendly cities in Texas. We examined:

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

We only analyzed non-CDPs that have more than 1,000 households. We assigned a ranking from 1 to 485 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 4.08%. 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 Texas.
