This week in Vegas’ lopsided rankings, from LGBT equality to disagreeable divorces



Las Vegas is kicking ass for LGBT equality. From inclusion in law and policy to inclusive treatment of LGBT citizens overall, Vegas scored 100 out of 100 points in the HRC’s Municipal Equality Index, crushing the national average of 56. —Human Rights Campaign

Las Vegas’ sustainability efforts are nationally legit. We’re now a certified 4-STAR Community based on social, economic and environmental measures of sustainability, putting us in the company of Austin, Texas, and Portland, Oregon. —STAR Community Rating System


Divorces in Nevada are more likely to be “disagreeable.” We’re the fifth least amicable state for splitting up, after Connecticut, Colorado, Arkansas and Alabama. Vermont is the most amicable. Maybe it’s all that autumn splendor. —

North Las Vegas is the third worst city for singles. Based on “key stats” like the average cost of wine, our satellite city beat only Hialeah, Florida, and Yonkers, New York. Good thing residents can pop over to Vegas proper, ranked 24th best out of 150 cities. —WalletHub
