Huntington receives perfect score in 2022 Municipal Equality Index

For the fourth consecutive year, the City of Huntington has received a perfect score from the nation’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization for creating an inclusive community for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The Human Rights Campaign this week released its 2022 Municipal Equality Index, which ranked 506 U.S. cities of varying sizes on several factors, including nondiscrimination laws, municipal employment policies, inclusiveness of city services, law enforcement with regard to LGBTQ persons and municipal leadership on matters of equality.

Huntington received a perfect score of 100 on a 100-point scale and a raw score of 106, its highest ever recorded in the annual report. Only 120 cities received a perfect score, up from 110 in 2021. For the second consecutive year, two West Virginia cities received a perfect score in the Municipal Equality Index. Morgantown achieved a perfect score along with Huntington. The nationwide average was 68.
