Baltimore is a good place for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people, according to a new study from the Human Rights Campaign.

The nation's largest LGBT advocacy group’s Municipal Equality Index looked at more than 335 cities across the US. The cities were graded on 47 criteria including non-discrimination laws, recognition of same-sex relationships, law enforcement, and the inclusiveness of city hiring and services.
