The LGBT Community in DC

The New York Times has an interesting video and related article on the presence and acceptance of the LGBT community in Washington, DC. According to polls, the capital has the highest percentage of LGBT adults (10%) compared to the rest of the nation (average 3.5%) and that LGBT life, particularly in terms of bars, is quite integrated which is interesting considering the history of the lavender scare and government suppression. It's suggested in the video that DC attracts the LGBT community because they have the opportunity to influence national issues in terms of LGBT rights.
