Brooklyn Elevated to Lesbian Mecca

Ginger's bar in Park Slope Brooklyn is one of the few lesbian bars in New York City.

On yesterday's show, outgoing Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz claimed that Brooklyn has become the lesbian - specifically lesbian, not just LGBT - capital of the Northeast. “We remain the lesbian capital of New York City and the Northeast. In other words, we have a much larger lesbian population in Brooklyn. New York City is fortunate to have a large LGBT community, but in Brooklyn in particular, the lesbian community, there’s no question it’s the capital of the Northeast.” Do you agree? John Hodgman thinks Northampton still holds the crown. Let us know what you think.
