Same-Sex Households Growing In Seattle, Fremont

By master · August 5th, 2011 · No Comments

As the Seattle Times writes, Seattle’s Capitol Hill is still the center of gay life for this region but same-sex couples, especially those raising children, are choosing to live elsewhere in Seattle. They’ve provided a handy-dandy interactive map to show the changes between 2000 and 2010 in Seattle neighborhoods, which includes numbers here in Fremont.

On the map, Fremont has been broken down into East and West sections. All-together, Fremont has grown from 97 same-sex households to 111. It doesn’t seem like much but from the looks of things, Fremont was a little ahead of the curve to begin with.

West Seattle, on the other hand, has grown 55% and become a popular place for same-sex couple to call home.
