Where does Kentucky rank in its treatment of Lesbians, Gays and Transgenders? A new study shows us.

The Human Rights Campaign compiled information from 291 American cities, including four in Kentucky, to see how municipalities were doing in supporting equality.

It’s called the 2013 Municipal Equality Index (MEI) and its the second edition of the only nationwide rating system of LGBT inclusion in municipal law.

The average score for cities in Kentucky is 38 out of 100 points, which falls below the national average.  Bowling Green scored 17 points, Frankfort scored 31 points, Lexington scored 53 points, and Louisville scored 50 points.

You can read all the details of the study here.
