I'm guessing that schools in NYC, LA, SF, and Miami would have a higher representation of gays/lesbians. All schools may have one or two but you may find schools in those cities to be more receptive to gays/lesbians.

I agree....schools where there are already lots of gay people are likely to have a lot of gay students.

CUNY seems to be queer central!

Whatever you do, DON'T go to Vermont Law School is you are gay.  This has nothing to do with the school itself - VLS is gay-friendly, but Vermont is not (surprise), and VLS is located so far from an civilization that you'll suffocate.  There are at most a dozen gay guys at the school.  Guys from other schools in the areas will NOT make the 45-90 min drive to see you.  It's awful.  If you are a lesbian, however, then VLS is paradise. Drama central paradise.  Remember, there are absolutely no gay bars in Vermont. Yes, it's true.  I was at VLS and it was a nightmare.

I'd probably skip Regent.

Generally, if there's a good gay population where the school is located, then it's a good place to be in terms of places to go out and that, but that doesn't necessarily translate to a good gay group on campus. Places where it's a bit more hostile to the family tend to be the places that spawn more on-campus stuff. (With, I'm sure, a few exceptions.) So, it depends on what you're looking for.

If you're considering different schools, look at their student organizations and, if they have a gay group listed, contact someone in the group and ask what it's like at the school and in the area where the school's located.
