Is Utah’s capital city the gay parenting capital of the United States?

(Fox 13 News) A new study indicates Salt Lake City has the highest rate of same-sex couples raising children, and city leaders aren’t surprised; they said Salt Lake City has paved the way for becoming a welcoming place for the LGBT community.

A recent study done by the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law indicates one out of four same-sex couples in Salt Lake City are raising children.

A conservative group said the culture in Utah is family friendly, so it’s not necessarily shocking, but gay couples who spoke with Fox 13 said, while the study is promising, there’s still a long way to go when it comes to Utah’s adoption laws.
