Oak Lawn is 8th-gayest neighborhood in the U.S.

In honor of LGBT Pride Month, the real estate website Trulia Trends has compiled rankings of the 10 gayest and 10 most lesbian neighborhoods in the U.S., based on zip codes with the highest concentrations of male and female same-sex households, respectively, according to the 2010 U.S. Census.

Oak Lawn, or zip code 75219 in Dallas, has the eighth-highest concentration of gay male couples in the U.S., Trulia found. The rankings also list the median price per square foot in the 10 neighborhoods. Although not the lowest at $160 per square foot, Oak Lawn is on the low end, especially compared to San Francisco’s Castro at $671 per square foot and Cape Cod’s Provincetown at $532.

On the ladies’ side, no neighborhood in Texas made the top 10 for highest concentration of same-sex female households, and four of the top 10 are in Massachusetts.

As we noted last summer when Census data was released, based on concentrations of same-sex households, Dallas is the 13th-gayest city in the U.S. overall — and the gayest in Texas.

But we should again note that because the Census doesn’t ask about sexual orientation, the data includes only self-identified same-sex households and not single gays and lesbians.

MAP: The fastest-growing gay counties in Texas

The Austin-American Statesman put together the below map for a story that ran this weekend about recently released 2010 Census data on same-sex couples. The story notes that Travis County’s percentage of same-sex couple households is the highest in the state and 13th highest in the country. Which, coincidentally, is precisely where Dallas stands among cities. Of course, these figures include only same-sex couples, and as Tisha so eloquently reminded us in the comments, “just imagine if they could count all the gay sluts in Dallas.”

With 2010 Census figures from the final five states released today, UCLA’s Williams Institute has now posted a nationwide snapshot of same-sex couples in the U.S.

And Dallas, with 15.01 same-sex couples per 1,000 households, ranks 13th on the list of cities with populations above 250,000. San Francisco is No. 1 at 33.41 same-sex couples per 1,000 households, and Austin is 15th with 14.42 same-sex couples per 1,000 households.

No other Texas city — large, mid-size or small — cracked the top 25. But Texas as a whole is the 21st-gayest state, with 7.56 same-sex couples per 1,000 households. The District of Columbia is No. 1, with 19.29 same-sex couples per 1,000 households, followed by Vermont, Massachusetts, California and Oregon.
