The Human Rights Campaign released the 2023 Municipal Equality Index, and Lexington is at the top of the list. How did we score?

Each year, the Human Rights Campaign releases a Municipal Equality Index which takes a deep dive into municipal laws, policies, and services and how inclusive they are of LGBTQ+ people.

This year’s edition examined 506 cities on 49 different criteria across five categories — non-discrimination laws, municipality as employer, services and programs, law enforcement, and leadership on LGBTQ+ equality.

Based on these criteria, Lexington earned a score of 100 out of 100. A perfect score. Click the button below for a breakdown of how we got here… and how that score may change.
