People on the gay sex app Grindr really know their stuff (even if they never quite learned the proper spelling of Grinder).

So the app polled them about the gayest places in the world, and they voted with one hand while doing God knows what with the other.

Here are the illustrious winners:


Gayest U.S. City: New York City

Gayest International City: London

Best Gay Beach U.S.: Miami

Best Gay Beach International: Rio de Janeiro

Best Gay Resort U.S.: Palm Springs, California

U.S. City With Best Gay Festivals: San Francisco

Hottest Grindr Guys U.S.: Los Angeles

Hottest Grindr Guys International: Tel Aviv

Best Destination to Get Married U.S.: Provincetown, Massachusetts

Best Destination to Get Married International: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Fab! Headed to Tel Aviv as we speak!

That's because they left out the phrase, "according to Gay White Men".

The respondents were likely all white gay men, but that's okay.

I've never grasped why The Advocate named Salt Lake City as No. 1 gay city of 2012 and Orlando as No. 2.

Update! Update! Angelina reportedly is wearing an engagement ring. From Brad! Congrats to them. But I thought they were going to wait until gay marriage was approved. I thought that meant, like, all over the country.

What, no category for City with Most Headless (Faceless) Pictures?

If steroid Barbies are their standard, woe be unto us. 'Grindr Awards' *can't stop smirking*

When you look at pictures of Colt models unaware of the camera you realize how much the photographer, the stylist and the lighting help. I'm not saying anyone's unattractive, it's just there's nothing very erotic about this pic at all.

Well, consider yourself lucky that the Grindr trolls didn't think of New Orleans when they voted. Maybe you're safe there!

Excusez-moi, but where's New Orleans, with its Southern Decadence Festival (a lonnnnng Labor Day weekend), MARDI GRAS (weeks of parades, balls and things you can barely imagine!), French Quarter Festival (going on NOW), Halloween (which was a gay celebration here DECADES before it was taken up elsewhere) , The Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival (John Waters, Mart Crowley, Rex Reed and Armistead Maupin are regular attendees), the Gay Easter Parade -- Hell, we parade at the merest HINT of an excuse!

The Quarter, Faubourg Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods fairly abound with gay theater, B&B's and bars, of course, 12 months a year and our bars are always open, many 24/7, plus you can carry go-cups on the street.

Not even a mention?

As Jean Harlow said in "Bombshell," "I ahsk you, as one lady to another -- Ain't that a load of clams?"

I want to see the normal looking guy in the cargo shorts at the far left from the front.

It is unacceptable that people would think those other men are attractive. Nobody with a green sensibility wants hormones in their meat.

Orlando? Maybe they meant Ft Lauderdale and made a mistake. And Salt Lake City? Just because it's mentioned in Book of Mormon maybe. Terrible choices.

Actually it might be better to leave them clueless. They might start converging on the actual best places and ruin them!
