JERSEY CITY – Mayor Steven M. Fulop announced Tuesday that Jersey City has been ranked the 8th Most LGBT-Friendly City in America by the financial website Nerdwallet.

LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender.

“We are excited to have such a diverse community in Jersey City that is recognized nationally,” said Fulop. “As we prepare to celebrate LGBT Pride Month, it is a great honor to see Jersey City ranked alongside such large cities as San Francisco, Seattle, and Chicago.”

Fulop was an early supporter of gay marriage and Jersey City made history when eight couples were among the first to be married during a midnight ceremony at City Hall in October when New Jersey became the 14th state to legalize same-sex marriage.

Other cities that ranked in the top ten include Austin, Atlanta, and Minneapolis. Nerdwallet is a financial information website that according to its online profile “offers data-driven tools and impartial information to help consumers make solid decisions about the money.”
