Kathy Belge Updated March 23, Whether you're thinking of moving, or just want a lesbian-friendly city to visit, these cities and towns are our top lesbian cities in the United States. The Northampton area has always been a great place to live, and because gays and lesbians can get legally married in Massachusetts, it tops our list. Northampton is a small town, but because of the numerous universities, including Smith College, Northampton has all the cultural offerings of a big city. Oregon has a comprehensive domestic partnership law and protections for LGBT workers. Portland residents lean to the left and you're likely to find two women holding hands, pushing a baby stroller or out for drinks in any neighborhood of the city. Add a great music scene, the only out NCAA basketball coach and plenty of lesbian hangouts to the mix, and you've got the cocktail for one amazing place for lesbians to live.
