Princeton Review's List of Least Gay Friendly Colleges

For any younger readers looking to go to college or for parents of LGBT students soon to be headed off to college, Princeton Review has released its latest rankings of the colleges to be avoided because of the LGBT unfriendly atmospheres. The top ten worse choices for LGBT students are as follows:

1. Wheaton College in Illinois
2. Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania
3. Brigham Young University in Utah (not exactly a surprise if you ask me)
4. Hampden-Sydney College here in Virginia (again, no surprise)
5. College of the Ozarks in Arkansas
6. University of Notre Dame in Indiana
7. Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, California
8. Boston College in Massachusetts
9. University of Dallas in Irving, Texas
10. Texas A&M University in College Station, Tecas.

Obviously, it's no surprise that three out of the top ten least LGBT institutions are Catholic institutions. With the Church, gay sex is fine as long as its confined to priests molesting same sex victims far younger than themselves. On the other end of the spectrum ar the colleges and universities that are the most gay friendly. Here are the top ten institutions in this category:

1. New York University in New York, New york
2. Stanford University in Stanford, California
3. Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts
4. Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts
5. Bennington College in Bennington, Vermont
6. University of Wisconsin - Madison, in Madison, Wisconsin
7. Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota
8. New College of Florida
9. Prescott College in Prescott Arizona
10. Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York

There are many things to consider in selecting a college. However, no one needs to go to a college or university where they need to hide in the closet and otherwise be miserable or treated badly.

The University of Dallas...that was the college I went to. Small wonder why I never graduated from it.

There's a Massachusetts college in the top 10 "worst" colleges for homosexuals?! I guess miracles do happen.

KWW--Boston College is a Catholic institution. That's one reason why it's so gay-unfriendly.

Also, I'm not surprised that Wheaton College in Illinois is the least gay-friendly: It's the alma mater of Billy Graham and his son, and is the birthplace of some nationwide campus Christian organizations.
