Neighborhoods with disproportionately high concentrations of gay men are more likely to experience greater income and population growth over time, according to a recent study, The Atlantic Cities reports.

The study also showed that segregation between same-sex and heterosexual couples didn’t drastically change from 2000 to 2010. While the clustering of gay male couples in certain neighborhoods increased slightly during that period, the clustering of lesbian couples decreased.

Over the next decade, The Atlantic Cities raised the possibility that “gayborhoods” will diminish as more same-sex couples, less afraid of discrimination, venture into less segregated neighborhoods.
