The city of Bloomington is one of only 47 in the nation that received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index, an annual report grades cities on LGBT inclusion.
The report scores cities based on several factors, including non-discrimination laws, employment policies, inclusiveness of city services and law enforcement.
Seven of Indiana’s largest cities were included in the analysis. The average score in the state was 60 out of 100 points – that’s above the national average.
Bloomington, Indianapolis, and South Bend scored even higher.
