In the Best of GayCities: The World According to Gays, Columbus was named the Up-and-Coming Gay City of 2011.
According to the publication, Columbus demonstrates something of an Eastern sensibility and the city's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population has $7.5 billion in purchasing power that has helped the community as an integral part of the culture.
The magazine also mentioned Columbus' surrounding liberal arts colleges and gay-friendly business like Limited Brands and Abercrombie & Fitch, which are based in central Ohio.
